San Diego Maternity Photography {Ochoa Sneak Peek}

When you love photography, and the beach, and bellies, and family! I’m so lucky that my brother and sister-in-law moved to San Diego earlier this year! AND they’re expecting their first baby! So of course we had to schedule a maternity photo session, and the beach provided the perfect backdrop!

My SIL and I headed out La Jolla one gorgeous morning and in less than 45-minutes captured so much loveliness! Pregnancy is such a short amount of time in a mama’s life, that I truly love working with mommies-to-be to commemorate this special time. It’s one of those small regrets I have – that I didn’t get professional photos while I was pregnant with either of my daughters. I think it’s one of those things you think you’ll get to, and then poof! the opportunity is gone! The best time for maternity photos is 30- to 36-weeks, but there really is never a bad time! Make sure you get those photos when you can!

San Diego Family Photography {Jones Sneak Peek}

Most people think San Diego is always perfect, sunny, warm weather, with gorgeous skies. But it’s not always the case! The Jones family were such troopers at our photo shoot – it was Spring Break, but it was seriously so crazy cold, windy and cloudy that evening!

I was so impressed with this beautiful and adorable family – you know that saying “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom will keep us away” – well they definitely were living that saying that evening! It was super cold (poor mom – so much for planning outfits only to layer on sweaters and coats!) and the water was a bit rough! But you would never know! Look at those faces ❤ We made the most of it and enjoyed our beach outing!

Meet baby Jesse! This little love bug was just a few days old at our session and such a perfect little guy! Spending the day with families, welcoming their new babies into the world, gives me so much joy! Their perfect little faces, squishy little arms and legs, and those tiny toes and fingers and eyelashes…what’s not to love?!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // newborn, baby photos, San Diego newborn photography, family photo session, family photography, baby girl, family

His family is so smitten with him, it was adorable to see his sister, ever so curious about her new brother!

Getting gorgeous shots of newborns is more than a calling, it’s a blessing. Especially capturing sweet little smiles and yawns and toes… Seriously, can baby Jesse be any cuter?!

San Diego Family Photography {Ridgway Sneak Peek}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // family photos, San Diego family photography, multi-generation family photo session, extended family photography, siblings, rustic, Old Poway Park, barn doors

Having fun families at photo sessions makes my job an absolute pleasure, and the entire Ridgway family was such a blast to work with! It was a drizzly and cold day, right around the holidays, but I love that the kiddos, parents and grandparents didn’t let that stop them from having fun at our session!

My sweet friend from church reached out to schedule a photo session while her sister and parents would be in town for the holidays. San Diego has had quite a rainy couple of months, but luckily our session worked out between the big storms. We even had a couple glimpses of clear skies!

It was absolutely darling to see the grandparents surrounded by the grandkids…truly a blessing!

The love, bonds and closeness between all of them was lovely and so genuine, you could truly feel it in the air!

The barn doors always provide such a beautiful backdrop, and of course we had to have fun with some jump shots!

And I did mention we were having fun, right?! They truly were so amazing to enjoy the afternoon with and capture these beautiful memories for them! I hope they enjoyed our afternoon as much as I did!

San Diego Family Photography {Manning Sneak Peek}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // family photos, San Diego family photography, family photo session, family photography, siblings, colorful doors, Little Italy, urban landscape, cityscape

Holidays and celebrations are such a wonderful time for family to come together and I’m always thrilled when families reach out to schedule photo sessions to capture those special times! Especially nowadays, where families are spread out in various states, or even across various countries, it’s so nice to capture the love and memories when they’re together!

That was exactly what we did when the Manning family met me in Little Italy for a fantastic photo session! This gorgeous family was so much fun to work with and spend an afternoon with. The giggles, love and bonds were truly awesome! And I’m so glad we made it happen…they were contemplating heading to a department store studio, but there’s no way they would’ve gotten these kind of family photographs there!

I think I truly would’ve loved spending even more time with them… if only their early Christmas dinner wasn’t waiting for them in the oven! I hope they enjoyed the experience and love the images we captured – I think it truly reflects this fierce and fabulous family!

We had so much fun walking around and exploring Little Italy, and there were so many fantastic spots for backgrounds, and they’re all so gorgeous, it was seriously nearly impossible to get a bad shot! They’re all stunning and I couldn’t help but love so many shots! Can you blame me?!
