The Beach

As a San Diego Family Beach Photographer, I love when clients choose the beach as the location for their session! And what a gorgeous night it was for a beach photo session. The sunset was pretty epic providing that beautiful cotton candy sky along with an amazing cloud. The cloud took up half the sky and made lighting a bit tricky, but was just stunning. We later found out that apparently this cloud formation is known as a “shelf cloud” and is a phenomenon rarely seen in San Diego. How cool!

The Family

I have been photographing this beautiful family since Beckett was in his momma’s tummy. They are both just the most adorable little guys! Brooks has the biggest personality, sweetest smile, and is the best big brother. He is a little Southern California boy to a ‘T” with his blonde hair & blue eyes. The last time I saw Beckett he was just a newborn baby! My has he grown and into the most handsome little guy with the most gorgeous baby blues, chubby cheeks, and little toothy grin. He recently turned one and I just adore this age!

I absolutely loved Emily’s reason for choosing the beach as the location for their family photo session. “It is our favorite place to be as a family! It is the place for Ted’s sport and where he feels happiest. I love simply soaking up the sunshine, jumping in the waves and burying my feet in the warm sand. Ted has added surfing to my experience of the ocean. It is now a balance between sport and relaxation. I look forward to enjoying all that it has to offer as a family and continuing to watch Ted share his expertise with our boys as they grow. The beach brings us all joy and calm. It is the place we can let our cares drift away, fill up our senses and be part of the flow.”
