It’s so easy for me to forget to hand the camera over to my husband sometimes, but whenever I do I’m so in love with the moments he captures. Don’t forget to be in the pictures with your family! My husband got these shots within 5 minutes and until I saw the shots I took I didn’t realize that I don’t have many pictures of my babies on my back, even though that’s where they always are. These pictures mean so much to me. The details of my baby grabbing onto my dress in the last picture is the sweetest. Hand the camera (or phone!) over and don’t miss those opportunities to be in the frame with your family.

I thought it would be fun to bring my camera along to see a local car show. I couldn’t help but get some shots of my daughter with the colorful cars!

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!
