I shot this family session with an old client from my Chicago days! I met them in Carlsbad for an intimate family photography session. We started the session at their home. I love at home family photo sessions because it’s such an easy setting, especially when small children are involved. Everyone feels relaxed and at ease. I can also capture fun details of the home at that moment in time, which can be really cool for families to look back at once the kids have grown and the house has changed and been rearranged. It’s always fun to look back and remember a special place in time.
After we finished the photoshoot in home, we went to the beach. We set up some chairs for a cool beachside photoshoot and then we played in the ocean. I love photographing the beach when it is slightly overcast. It adds a romantic and fun quality to the shoot. No one hopes for a cloudy beach day, but it actually looks really spectacular in photos!
We did very little posing for this photoshoot. I wanted to capture fun family moments with Cole. I wanted them all to enjoy the session and to capture memories of this fun family day at the beach. As Cole grows up, they will be able to look back at the photos and remember spending time together with their son at home and playing in the water. They will remember eating popsicles and playing in the sand, not posing for a photo.
