It’s always so nice when clients want a session like this one. I love shooting lifestyle sessions at a family’s home, but it can also be so fun to follow them around and capture a little outing like this and discover what they like to do together on the weekend. Enjoy these pictures I got of this adorable family at Coronado Beach.

While this isn’t an entire day worth of pictures, I wanted to share a little glimpse into our day. It started our pretty cloudy and gloomy, so I had no choice but to turn on lights in the house for the morning shots since we only have a few windows in our little apartment. I prefer natural light in my pictures, so editing those shots were a little tricky for me. Either way I love the shots we got. I could have kept going till night time, but we all needed a break from the camera. Hopefully I can do this again soon and get the second half of our day documented. Enjoy these for now!

We have long mornings and late breakfasts on my husband’s day off. Some days our daughter won’t come in our room in the morning because she is too hungry and wants breakfast immediately, but this morning was different. She sat in bed with us and we tickled her and she blew raspberries on our stomach (her favorite thing to do). I rarely take pictures in our bedroom, but I think I will start doing it more often now since the light was so beautiful at this time of day.

Here is a little glimpse into our life, real and raw…how I prefer life to be captured.
