Emerald (4) & Lincoln (2.5): Seal Point Park

This is my third year in a row photographing this family.  Boy have these two grown in the last year.  We started the shoot at home to trend a year to year family photo with the same background. We then headed to Seal Point Park where it was windy and freezing cold but we managed to find a spot that kept hair from flying and teething from chattering.  =)  For the kids, we brought along a bag of M&M's to help keep them motivated.  By the end of the shoot, everyone was besties.  So much so that Lincoln was sad to see me go.  It totally broke my heart to have to say "bye".  Thank you for the fun memories.

San Pedro Square Market: Elliott (6)

We were threatened with rain for the day of the photoshoot so we sought a location that would possibly provide some shelter.  San Pedro Square Market was perfect.  There were different wall textures that helped give more of a city feel as well.  Elliott did an awesome job.  He was a little nervous at first but warmed up quickly and even started directing some of my shots.  Mom and Dad were good sports as well and showed off their fun side.   I've really enjoyed watching this family grow through the years.  So much fun...

Emma (7), Silas (5), & Cameron (3)

Watching these kids grow through the years has been so much fun.  It's so nice when the kids remember me.  At first, we weren't sure if the weather was going to cooperate but we found a window of opportunity before the rain started to capture some nice outdoor photos.  Emma was a pro in front of the camera and Silas followed in her footsteps.  Cameron was a little hesitant at first but came around with his big smiles.  I loved how well these siblings interacted together.  They are so lovable and mom and dad definitely make an adorable couple as well.

Bean Hollow State Beach: Samuel (4) & Eli (1)

It's been awhile since I photographed this family so it was great to see them again with a second addition to the family.  At first we weren't sure if this photoshoot was even going to happen.  The first date we picked turned out be a rainy day (a rare occurrence for California) so we had to reschedule.  Then, the new date looked like good weather but as we drove closer to Half Moon Bay, it was super foggy.  Luckily, the fog cleared right at the location of shoot.

Sammy and Eli were all smiles and ready to go.  Mom did a great job coordinating outfits for the family and Dad was a trooper rallying the team together.  This was my first official beach photoshoot and I loved it.  Eli wasn't a big fan of the sand at first but as he got used it, he started enjoying it and even ate some of it.  It was a fun way to spend a Sunday morning.
