San Diego Family Photography Session {M Family Sneak Peek}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // San Diego Family Photographer - family of 5 - outdoor, rustic park, natural light

I absolutely LOVE when families I photograph bring their authentic selves to our photo session! They bring their smiles, their love for their family, their flair. And that’s exactly what the M family did for our session! I’ve known (and photographed) the family for a couple of years, and they never disappoint!

Not only are they amazingly gorgeous, but they are genuinely some of the nicest people on earth! We chatted about the fact they were planning to wear authentic Indian attire and I just had to swoon over the colors and textures…stunning!

Make It Monday // Fourth of July Banners

Are you ready to celebrate the next US holiday? The Fourth of July is right around the corner!

MakeItMondayCircle-RED-CORAL-MAYOh, how I’ve missed the Make It Monday posts! Have you? Well, I’m baaaaack! Its’ been a frantic couple months, and even though this summer will be busy keeping up with my daughters, I’m really looking forward to finding a good balance…wish me luck ;)

My Etsy shop has been growing with new products and I’ve even ventured into planner stickers…but I’ll save that for another post! One of my most popular banners “Pop Fizz Clink” is super sparkly with the gold letters, and one of my favorite items to make. And that’s what inspired these patriotic 4th of July banners!

Incorporating the traditional Red, White and Blue colors was a must, but I wanted to elevate the glam factor, like the sparkle of the Pop Fizz Clink banner. So red glittered letters were perfect for the occasion! What do you think? Do you decorate for the 4th of July? How great would these look behind a beautiful patriotic buffet table? Or in an entry way greeting your guests? Or of course anywhere in your house celebrating the holiday for more than just one day!

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph all this gorgeousness just before a little San Diego rain came our way! When we discussed our session, I was so happy to hear they wanted an outdoor location with yummy natural light. So even though the sky was a little darker than I wanted, you gotta love overcast skies and that natural diffuser Mother Nature provides!

It’s definitely that time of year…wedding season! Such a wonderful time of life when brides are working hard to make their dream wedding vision a reality! She’s getting all her bits and pieces ironed out for the style of her big day – party favors, decorations, menu, signature cocktails and so much more. Not only is the Bride working her magic, but her made-of-honor and bridesmaids are busy too handling bridal showers and bachelorette parties, making sure each detail shines like the bride herself!

Speaking of shining…I’m sure you’ve caught on to the gold trend over the past year or so?! It’s that perfect, sparkly, glamorous touch to every event!

Over on my Etsy shop, I’ve been busy creating custom orders for weddings, parties and celebrations of all sorts! I just love these super popular and trending banners with fun sayings like “POP FIZZ CLINK” and “EAT CAKE” and “SWEET TREATS” and CUSTOM HASHTAGS and “FUTURE MRS….” and, oh I can just go on and on! Have you been to a wedding or party lately with great decorations that caught your eye? They are so much fun and really lend a custom festive touch to every event!

Beautiful E Senior Portraits {Sneak Peek}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // senior portrait photo session in Balboa ParkConnie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // senior portrait photo session in Balboa Park

Beautiful, funny, intelligent, witty, outgoing, theatrical…those are just a few of the words that quickly come to mind about this gorgeous girl! I had the pleasure of photographing her earlier this month for her Senior Portraits. She’s graduating high school and on her way to such a wonderful new phase of life!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // senior portrait photo session in Balboa ParkConnie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // senior portrait photo session in Balboa Park

We headed off to Balboa Park, one of my absolute favorite places to photograph, and captured some beautiful shots of this absolutely gorgeous girl!

I say this often, but only because I sincerely, truly, absolutely mean it…I’m blessed to do what I love and love what I do! Beautiful E has an amazing future ahead of her and I can only offer this bit of advice: pursue an education and a career in what brings your heart much, much joy!  Best of luck to you, E!
