Outdoor Family Photography in Rancho Penasquitos

Getting The Most Out Of Family Photos

Choosing the right photographer for your family portraits is a process, but when you find your perfect match for your style, that’s when magic happens! That close relationship that builds throughout the duration of your portrait sessions cannot be paralleled.

I’ve been photographing this family for the last two years and absolutely treasure when clients become friends, as they have. So far we have captured the maternity, newborn, 6 month and 1 year milestones through my Collective Membership Program! I will also be seeing them again at my annual Motherhood Event in a few short weeks.

Father Son Bonding Time

Dawson and his daddy have such a sweet and special relationship! He loves his dad, and they were both all smiles the entire time. I love when I get to photograph dads blissfully playing and enjoying their babies – family portraits are such an amazing opportunity to capture those organic and natural moments together!

Raw, Real, And Candid Imagery

Having family photos done can be intimidating at first, wondering how to pose and whether or not you’ll look “natural.” I am drawn to totally organic and candid imagery, and rarely pose my clients (or even have them constantly look at the camera and smile!).

The images that bring out your most raw and real selves are the ones where you’re focused on each other and simply being you. I will guide you into natural and effortless moments, where you can engage with one another and forget I’m there. Our goal together is to create memories that last a lifetime through professional imagery. You will see nothing but love, laughter, and happiness through the photos we take!

How To Dress For Family Photos

Part of my services include offering a complete Client Wardrobe that is available to all mamas and babies up to age 5. I carefully and thoughtfully select each clothing item for each client based on our location, your style, fit, and color theme!

For dads, I always recommend wearing neutrals to compliment – khakis, earth tones, light blues, creams, and whites are always best choices. You deserve to be completely stress-free when planning your family portraits, and in my opinion planning your coordinating outfits is the hardest, most stressful part. I love being able to take care of wardrobe styling for my clients!
