One of the many things I love about San Diego is the variety of scenery. For this family session, we decided Torrey Pines would be perfect. We started at the top of the trails with some greenery while the sun was still up, and then drove down to the beach to end our session.
I feel like a broken record when I say this, but seriously, every time I get to photograph a family I get a tiny glimpse into their world. This sweet couple and their son were some of the most loving, fun and gentle people, ever. I feel like their home is just all smiles, hugs and kisses all day every day.
I barely directed them on where to stand and which way to face, and they did everything else which is seriously a dream for a photographer like me. All I ever want is for families to focus on each other and be in the moment and let me capture their love and connection. This family of three - their love, their light (and mama's dress) - was magic.
