The Cheshire Family roadtripped it up to Portland a few weeks ago and stopped in at the Orr+Barrera house for a couple days.  In between exploring neighborhoods and taking in the Portland sights, there was lots of hanging out at the house and indulging in some fantastic conversation.  The weather was glorious during their time with us and toward the end of their stay, we happened to be in the backyard and the light was amazing and I just had to run and grab my camera and snap a few photos.

There is nothing in the world that I love better than spending some time with some of my most favorite people in the place that I love the best.  Come back soon, Cheshires!  xoxo

San Diego Family Photographer // The Cheshire Family

Fate.  Kismet.  Circumstance.  Coincidence.  If we’re lucky, one of those beliefs will step in and introduce us to some amazing people… folks who hopefully become lifelong friends.  Two and a half years ago, I was the recipient of some very good fortune when I met Josh & Nicole.

We bumped into each other during an engagement shoot, although not their own.  Lucky for me, they were blissfully happy and newly engaged and so we exchanged information.  I got to know them as we conversed over email, talked on the phone, shot their own engagement session and eventually their wedding.  And every time I saw them, I cherished our time together.  They are some of the most genuine, caring, and heartfelt people I know.

After the wedding they moved to the East Coast, but we still kept in touch.  Which is why I was super stoked to see them when they came out to San Diego on a recent family vacation.  The extra special part?  In the two years since I’ve known Josh & Nicole, they have added to their family with sweet little Jacks.

I could go on and on about this family, but I prefer to let the photos do the talking.  Thank you for being you, Cheshire family.  You rock my socks off. :)

Missing the Munchkins…

Just moved to Portland and already missing these guys.  I love being The Crazy Aunt. :)
