Teanna and I go way back to the days of living in Mission Beach. We were pregnant with our firsts and due a few months a part. Lots of memories with this family. And oddly enough, we added a boy to our families around the same time too. Cain and Slater are 7 months apart and we have had many Legoland and beach get togethers just like the old days in the 90′s. Our first borns are both off to college this fall. You can see this family here, here, here, here, and here (that was a fun trip down memory lane). Today we are at a park in Carlsbad at the end of the day with beautiful light. Can’t get much better than that.
This was such a fun family session at the beach in La Jolla last November. It’s my ‘secret spot’ at the beach if there could be one in San Diego. October and November at Wind and Sea is crazy town with photographers and families getting holiday photos. Luckily, my secret spot isn’t too far from the overly popular location and I usually have the beach all to myself with my clients.
Ok, I have been photographing this family for the last five years. Last years shoot is not posted but the three before that are here, here, and here. These little twin boys were so camera shy with me the first year I photographed them. Now my six year old goes to school with them and they are far from shy with me. In fact, with the amount of tongue sticking out and goofy faces, I’d say they might be a little overly comfortable. Just kidding… they were great. I’ll take that over shy any day. And you will see from the images, we were not short on personality seeping out.
I love having teenage kids for many reasons. I really love that my kids have good taste in music that I like (I attribute that to the awesome 80′s music I subjected them to as children). I thought I would share some of my favorite songs this month. Some found by me and some by Tucker.
Just a sampling and I love a lot of songs by each of the artists but these might be my current favorites. I really should add the finale song on Pitch Perfect because I have replayed that the most… I can’t help it. The best song ever made is the running theme in that montage.
I love whites, grays and creams. These are just a few of my favorite finds on my Pinterest boards. I love creating color coordinated groupings because they are just pretty:)
Whale Pitcher? Yes please!I have big plans every christmas to wrap all the gifts I give in beautiful packaging… it’s a pipe dreamWho doesn’t love giant black and white photos on the wall (well, probably lots of people… but WHY?) Farm house chairs and table… love
