Family Summer Beach Session - North County San Diego, CA

June 22, 2016  •  3 Comments

This session officially goes down in history as my absolute FUNNEST session to date!  (Did I just say "funnest"? Is that even a word??? Who cares!)

When you're at the beach and your clients are down to let their kids run - fully clothed - into the ocean, you just follow suit and make sure you capture every bit of joy radiating from their adorable faces!  Then, when you're hip-deep in the ocean, loving life, and the parents themselves get in the water too, you just thank the Heavens because you have the best job in the world!  

The last time I shot this family, back in the fall of last year, we had a great time running around and being goofy together! I remember the boys' mom telling me her boys kept asking about me, about when they were going to have another photoshoot!  Can you believe that?  THAT is how family photo sessions should be!  I know it can be stressful having to put the outfits together, get everyone bathed, dressed, fed and out the door (on time) - trust me - I've been on the other end of this gig too.  But when you finally arrive at your session, try to just let all that go... breathe, enjoy your time together as a family, and just focus on having fun and genuinely connecting with each other.  Your kids (and hubby!) will learn to LOVE family photoshoots, resulting in exponentially better experiences year after year, AND you'll wind up with images like these....
