Paleo Family Portrait Session

San Diego Family Portraits

This sweet family has two beautiful babies, just 19 months apart. Our session was full of smiles, giggles, and exploring! I love being able to capture your most special memories and turning them into treasured keepsakes. There are so many seasons that you will experience together during these little years of raising babies – so many moments that you want to just freeze and experience over and over again. Having family portraits done allows you to do just that! We even designed a gallery wall for them after our session. I believe that your luxury portrait experience should not end after your photo session date – your memories should be turned into tangible artwork that adorn your walls for you to enjoy always.

Beautiful Photos In Natural Light

I adore shooting outside at this time of year. My favorite field is so green and beautiful during springtime, and creates a dreamy ambiance for portraits. Their adorable daughter loved exploring close by, and picked flowers for her baby brother. Nothing gives quite the same organic and natural light as does photographing outside! It gives a completely different look and feel to your portrait session than shooting in studio – though both provide lovely images you will forever cherish.

Dressing For Your Photo Session

One of my favorite aspects of fine art lifestyle portrait photography is offering a gorgeous selection of high end wardrobe pieces for my clients to choose from. This takes the stress away from outfit planning and coordinating, and leaves you feeling pampered and taken care of on the day of your session. You will receive outfit planning ideas prior to our session for everyone in the family, as well as the option to have your hair and make up professionally done for an additional fee (something almost every one of my clients takes advantage of – as they should!).

Sweet Time For Family Bonding

Family portraits shouldn’t be about posing perfectly, getting “the shot”, or worrying about your kids behaving. My organic and natural approach to capturing candid imagery allows you to just be yourselves – revealing genuine smiles, abundant laughter, and your personalities to shine. It’s during those in-between moments where your bond as a family is beautifully caught on film. Your portrait session is a time to celebrate you and the beautiful life you have created together!
