Oh what a joy it was to photograph these three! Katherine, Chris, and Jade were my first family I photographed in my new studio space and it was beautiful. I know Katherine from a local group in San Diego called Tuesdays Together and over time, particularly through her pregnancy, we got to know each other and become friends!
This tiny little girl (who was a month old the day of the shoot) has grown so much in the last few months, it's amazing. She is such a cutie so hopefully this isn't the last time your see a blog post featuring Katherines family.

I photographed this cute family last winter (can ya believe it was winter with these amazing wildflowers?) to document a new stage in their lives individually and as a family. They were about half way through a year of being without their beloved wife and mother.
I'm glad to have captured this new phase of their life. The beautiful wildflower photos represents the new chapter of their life. The photos at the Chula Vista marina has significant meaning to the family as this location was where they use to go for peace of mind and rest as they dealt with the hardships of cancer.
It's truly refreshing to keep moving forward with life through new family photos after a death. It may feel difficult at first but I believe doing this for my pastors family was a great gift in their grieving process. I'm also thankful to have captured a beautiful family photos of all 6 of them early on.
Monica and Pablo had a beautiful maternity session along with some added fun that showed their personalities a bit. As you can tell they are big Ninja Turtle fans and made sure not to just bring a little turtle onesie as a prop for their session but they each came wearing cute Ninja Turtle t-shirts! I think their son will look back and think about how silly their parents were when he see's these photos!
Along with the fun of having some photos displaying their Ninja Turtle attire, they made sure to have their fur babies in some of the photos because you can't leave out your first "children". After photographing many pets in photo sessions, I have come to the conclusion, dogs LOVE to be apart of the photo session. It's hard to get them away from their human parents and it's so cute.
Overall we had a great time running around using different locations to create beautiful scenic backdrops for Monica and Pablo's maternity session and it totally paid off! The rose garden surrounding this beautiful mom was killer and one of my favorites!
This quiet setting in East Lake was perfect for Lorena and Ryan's maternity pictures. Lorena was expecting her third baby and at the time decided to wait and be surprised as to what God was going to bless them with for this pregnancy. They have already been blessed with two little boys already and are very excited (and surprised!) to announce to welcome a baby girl! What a wonderful surprise!
