Throwback Thursday - Oceanside Family Session at Mission San Luis del Rey

May 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Every now and then I like to revisit and old session of mine....especially if I know I'm going to be shooting them again in the near future.  So in the spirit of that nostalgia, let me present to you a Throw-back-Thursday blog post featuring a family I will have the pleasure to shoot again this coming August! When this stunning Mother of two reached out for a photographer for their very first family photos (ever!!!) I was super excited! Fresh meat! Hahah....just kidding of course!  I actually felt a little nervous  - what a huge honor (and heavy load) to capture a family's very first professional photos together! But I quickly knew we were just mean to be... 

This adorable couple is homegrown from Oceanside - very rare for a military town whose population changes constantly. When they mentioned wanting to stay true to their O'side roots for this session I suggested we try out the gorgeous Mission San Luis del Rey - and as fate would have it, that location has a special place in their hearts! This adorable Catholic couple had their "Engaged Encounter" weekend at the Mission as part of their marriage preparation experience!  My husband and I also partook in an Engaged Encounter weekend of our own, so I knew how special it must have been for these guys to return here for their first family photos - with two littles in tow this time!  

Here are my favorite shots from that session - my first of 2016:
