San Diego Family Photographer

Being a lifestyle photographer based in San Diego, I get to meet so many amazing families from all different backgrounds and states! This sweet family of six was no exception – they were such a joy to photograph! Family photography is one of my favorite session styles to book. I love seeing that joy and closeness between families blossom throughout the images.

Laughter and play during family sessions

The late afternoon light was perfectly golden and dreamy for our session, and there was definitely no shortage of laughter and play. How can there be when you’ve got so much love to go around? Being a family photographer is one of my most favorites roles in my job, because there’s a beautiful chaos that unfolds revealing raw love and real moments. I just love capturing those sweet moments between siblings and parents. Watching families grow is one of my favorite highlights of documenting memories – I love playing a part of your growing seasons! Seeing little Bennett for the first time since his mama had him in her belly was such a joy – he loved chasing his siblings around and running into his mama’s arms!

Center of their parent’s whole world

Last time I photographed this family, their youngest (Bennett) was in his mama’s tummy! The Young family moved here 3 years ago when Jennifer was pregnant with baby Bennett. The first time I did their photos, our family session was focused on photos of the siblings. I’m so glad mom and dad decided to join in on the photo session fun this time! Bennett definitely brings the energy and playfulness to the family, and it was evident just from their laughter and interactions together that these sweet kiddos are best buds and the center of their parent’s whole world.

Full House with full hearts

Is there anything better than a group hug from a family of six?! This session was filled with so much laughter and giggles! This is what memory-making and picture-taking is all about. Documenting your babies getting taller, their personalities getting bigger, your love for them growing fonder…nothing compares to the joy these little years will bring from having a full house with full hearts. mom with daughters and dad with sons in fieldmom holding baby boy in arms smilingboy in tuxedo smiling at camera in fieldmom and dad and children in field smiling at camerablack and white mom and dad hugging each othermom and dad holding smiling little boys handsblack and white of family in field with children running around parentsdad lifting up daughter into air while family watches and laughs

Natural beauty of San Diego

This sweet family really loves nature and the outdoors, so of course our family session had to take place outside in the natural beauty of San Diego! This field was perfect for them – the kids could run around, and mom and dad enjoyed being outside in minutes away from their San Diego home. mom and dad in love hugging in fieldmom and dad swinging little boy by the arms

Client Wardrobe Collection

Mama’s dress was borrowed from Client Wardrobe Collection. I carry timeless and classic wardrobe pieces for everyone in the family and love offering this option to clients. No more worrying about how to color coordinate your outfits or investing in things you will only wear once for your photo session, because I provide exclusive wardrobe pieces and styling for you. This makes it easy for your framed photos to effortlessly mix with any decor style, any wall paint, and within any room.
My ultimate goal as a San Diego family photographer is to not only produce stunning images, but to also provide a luxurious, and stress-free experience. The experience includes a pre session consultation to discuss your hopes for the session, access to client wardrobe collection for both mothers and babies, personalized styling so that we can create the perfect look for you, and optional professional hair & make-up services to make you look and feel gorgeous the day of your session. Contact me for more details and to begin planning your family portrait session!
