This is the third time that I have photographed the G Family, including their ever-so-handsome twin boys who are successful actors. You can view their FIRST and SECOND sessions here on the blog. This time, we did a multi-functional session, if you will. Family portraits + headshots + a gorgeous family = some pretty great images!
I really loved working with the Johnstons for the first time last year; you can view their first session HERE. I was so excited when M contacted me to set up another session. Returning clients are the best kind because I absolutely love seeing their kids grow! For this particular session, we were on rainy weather watch (so strange for this time of year) prior to the session, but it cleared out and dried up just in time. We had some gorgeous light after all!
I have known Baby G’s mommy for over 8 years now, although she and I have never even lived in the same city. When I found out that she and her family were moving to San Diego, I was so excited and immediately began planning out a time when I could drive down. When she asked me to photograph newborn Baby G, it was the perfect opportunity. I was delighted to find out that Baby G is seriously adorable and sweet, just like his three older siblings, his mommy and daddy. Congrats, S Family!
Gabriela’s headshot session almost didn’t happen; Mother Nature just wasn’t cooperating. We had to reschedule once due to high winds and we battled rain drops on the second date a week later. Luckily, although it was raining on my drive to the session location, the weather cleared up and gave way to a gorgeous cloudy, cool day. We braved the cold and snapped away.
I first photographed the M sisters last time one of them was home on leave from the Army. Her mom was so excited that she was coming home for the holidays, that she booked a family session, this time with the whole family, to commemorate the event.
I don’t think I can even describe how much fun I had with the M Family. They are hilarious, playful, and full of belly laughs. What an awesome ending to a chilly Sunday afternoon.
We planned, planned, and planned for the C Family’s mini session, but we soon found that we couldn’t prepare for everything. The C kids started out happy, but quickly decided that having their pictures taken wasn’t their cup of tea (which I totally get!). Nevertheless, we managed to get a few giggles and sweet smiles out of them in a gorgeous setting with gorgeous light.
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed describes newborn Baby S perfectly. Actually, AWAKE is the operative word here. Baby S’ mommy had quite the time trying to get her to sleep, but in the end, she decided that she wanted to be part of the party, so we snapped away anyway. The best thing about this session for me? The baby yawns! Adorable!!!
The H Family (see their original family session HERE) booked two consecutive sessions, so after their large family session, we headed back to the Cristen Farrell Photography Studio for some formal family photos. I am all about simple and classic, so we chose a solid black background, which really sets apart their faces. About half way through, the H’s niece and nephew came by so we could take a few shots with all 5 kids. Let me just say…they are all simply adorable and polite…such sweet kids!
