A New Addition | Old Poway Park

By, December 26, 2016

We first met Sandy and Doan when they hired us to photograph their engagement and wedding. They recently contacted us for a family photo shoot, and it was really nice to reconnect :) They now have a beautiful daughter… plus another bundle of joy on the way!

For the shoot location, we chose Old Poway Park, for its rustic and playful atmosphere. Between the vivid red box train, and the charming railroad tracks, it was the perfect back drop for an energetic two year old!

The tender moments we captured between Sandy and Doan, like the above right, shows how much their love has grown along with their family.

We were thrilled to photograph again for Sandy and Doan, and to document this new stage of life!

Beautiful Sunset Cliffs Maternity Session | Anna Rose and Arturo

By, March 10, 2016

We love reconnecting with our wedding couples, and watching them grow into families :) A couple of years ago, we photographed for Anna Rose and Arturo at their amazing Rancho Valencia wedding. Very recently, we had the opportunity to document another big moment in their lives – a baby to be!

Anna Rose decided to show off her adorable baby bump, and Sunset Cliffs was the perfect place to do so. To highlight this stunning new momma-to-be, we incorporated various backgrounds and textures, and made full use of the natural beach environment. Here is a selection of our favorite images from this maternity photo session.

Sweet Beginnings at Balboa Park

First comes love,

Then comes marriage…

Then comes a BABY in a baby carriage! :)

This familiar jingle definitely rings true for Sarah and Jonathan! Last March, we had the privilege of photographing their intimate seaside wedding in Laguna Beach. Not long after, the couple delivered news that a baby was on its way! With maternity portraits in mind, this darling couple stepped behind our lens again to preserve this special time in their lives.

The shoot took place in Balboa Park, with its stately architecture and blooming gardens. Along with Sarah’s effortless bohemian flair, the park setting lent itself to maternity portraits that were relaxed and heartfelt. These images will no doubt be shared with the little one in years to come, but you can check them out now!
