Van Leuven Family | Moving Forward

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.

Amanda and Dewitt Maternity | Ramona Grassland Preserve

Amanda and Dewitt's maternity photo session was absolutely dreamy! Believe it or not, as I left home to head east towards Ramona to meet with Amanda and Dewitt, it had started to rain! I was really looking forward to this session and shooting at this new location just hoping the weather app wasn't lying to me since it said it wouldn't be raining in Ramona.

Well we get there and it's a bit cloudy which is fine because amazing images can still be created in gloomy weather (I love gloomy weather by the way). After walking around, avoiding thorns and an abundance of cow pies, we landed this gorgeous location. After a few minutes the sun appeared from behind the clouds giving us the most dream like light over the mountains, shining through this solo tree out in this wide open land.

We all left feeling great and a little dirty while brushing off prickly sticks and grass, but felt great and excited for the follow up reveal session to view the final images from this session. But hey, if you're not getting soaked by the ocean during one of our sessions, you're getting covered in grass and a little bit of dirt, but is it really that great of a price to pay for a fun session and amazing images?
