C-Family and their dog RAMBO at Jack's Pond Park, San Marcos
There's always a bit of a "what do they look like" factor involved when you're meeting strangers to take their family photos (especially during the Holidays when there may be 3-5 families waiting for their sessions at such a popular spot like Jack's Pond Park in San Marcos!). I initially recognized this family as "mine" by the coral dress Mom had emailed me pictures of, but as they got closer I realized I actually knew them from somewhere! Turns out their son is in the same preschool as my son, Story! But that's not all!! (insert cheesy infomercial voice there).... THEN I found out that "Mom" knows my brother-in-law from back in high school, and I realized this was not a mere coincidence - we were simply "meant to be together" haha!
Rewind a few weeks to their initial inquiry - they said they wanted "not-too-posed", but "fun" photos that truly captured the children's unique personalities. PLUS, since they had never included their beloved dog, Rambo (who is starting to get up there in age despite his still spritely step) in any family photos before, they wanted to make sure he could be in a few too. Ummmm....yes and YES!!!!!! Obviously I was super excited for this session - I knew these would be "my kind of people" and they did not disappoint! We had a ton of fun goofing around for an hour and I think Rambo had his best day so far this year!
Love your style! Beautiful family and what are gorgeous session!
Beautiful family session! And that light...
