See what I mean?

Jay + Sara, our session was amazing.  We should definitely do that every weekend.  Jay, thank you for not making me hike up that enormous hill.  Sara, thank you so much for suggesting such an amazing location.  I cannot wait for your wedding… it is going to be phenomenal!

San Diego Family Photographer // At the Beach

IMG_6940

Mid-summer of this last year, my grandfather passed away.  As one of 14 children, my father gathered his family to pay final respects to the man who left an immense legacy behind.  And though we gathered together to grieve, we also reconnected as family.  I spent 3 days with my brothers and their families (a rare event in itself) as well as aunts and uncles I hadn’t seen in years and cousins I had never met.  In the months since the funeral, we have all made extra efforts to stay in touch and I have never seen my dad happier than when he is teasing his sisters or telling stories about their childhood.  Two of my aunts came down with their families and spent Thanksgiving weekend at my parents’ house.  My cousins, landlocked in Arizona, wanted only to hang out at the beach and go to Seaworld.

It poured most of the day, so no photos of Seaworld, but the sun came out for a couple of hours so we could spend some time at the beach.

There is not much else I love more in this world than being surrounded by a big noisy group of people I love.  Can’t wait to see you all again soon!

Fine Art Photographer // A few more wintry images…

I have been fascinated by Christmas lights this year and couldn’t help myself the other evening when the setting sun and a neighbor’s decorations made a gorgeous light display. IMG_7982

When it grew too dark, I turned the camera on my tree…

I’m recovering from a doozy of a cold at home, with an unheard of amount of time on my hands.  Expect a few blog posts in the next few days!

Merry Christmas to all…

…and to all, a VERY good night!

It’s been a wonderful year and I’m ready to enjoy these final few days surrounded by family and friends.  Happy holidays and lots of love to each one of you!
