Many of you may recognize Nicole from her wedding pictures! I shot her wedding in March, and then her Maternity shoot a few month later. When looking at Nicole, and seeing how adorable she was at 8 month pregnant, I knew we had only one choice… a forest fairy themed shoot. I mean come on people, doesn’t this girl look like she is going to sprout wings and fly away?! Upon telling Nicole that I thought she needed a flower crown for this shoot, she simply smiled, and said “whatever you think will look cute, I will do!” How cool is that?!
Being that this session was planned months in advance, it never occurred to me that the Sunday we planned to do Kat’s senior session, also fell over Memorial day weekend. EVERYWHERE WAS A MAD HOUSE. Although we couldn’t get in to balboa park, we ultimately ended up at Seaport Village, and we got some GREAT stuff! It is always fun for me to walk in to a location, and try to find little gems that may not otherwise be looked at like an “ideal” photo op location, and we succeeded over and over again! With rich wood backgrounds, magically lit up trees, and of course, the carousel! Even in the middle of a busy holiday weekend, with people crawling around everywhere, we had a blast!
A few Saturdays ago, I had the pleasure of taking a small stroll along the water with the Miller family. They were in town visiting family for Easter, and wanted to squeeze in an early morning family portrait session. They are all so sweet, and so easy to shoot! I just had to tag along, and capture the cuteness as it came. We ended up at Scripps Pier in La Jolla, which is such a BEAUTIFUL spot to take family portraits! I had so much fun, and I was so excited to send them back home with a little piece of San Diego.
