La Jolla Senior Portraits {CG Sneak Peek}

This gorgeous girl has the whole world ahead of her! We had so much fun capturing her senior portraits on a bright, sunny, San Diego day at the beach ❤ I’ve been blessed to know her family for seven years and I just love her mama’s big heart, dazzling smile and her adorable southern accent ❤  Beauty and heart run deep within this family!

She’s an intelligent, sweet, athletic, articulate and stunning girl and I’m so excited to hear about her future plans! I always remember the mix of feelings as a high school senior — excitement, fear, anticipation, courage, and most of all HOPE. So many opportunities, so much ahead to look forward to. I truly look forward to hearing what path this sweet beauty ends up taking!

I had the great pleasure of meeting and photographing this fun and wild bunch on a May gray kinda morning. But even though there wasn’t much sun shining, it didn’t keep the laughs or good times away!

As time flies and families grow up, I still love getting plenty of photos of parents with their kiddos – no matter how big they get, they’re always our babies, right?!

La Jolla Family Photography {Steiner Sneak Peek}

Heading to the beach in the fall for family photos is one of my favorite times of year! Getting to photograph the extended Steiner family for a quick mini session was an absolute treat! There was so much love, joy and giggles, that our session flew by in a flash!

One of the most beautiful parts of being a photographer is focusing the lens on mom and her babies. So many times, us moms are busy getting photos of everyone else, so I love taking that extra time to make sure mom gets some love with her kiddos!

La Jolla Family Photography {Rojas Sneak Peek}

Heading to the beach for a family photo session is always a lovely way to spend the day! I was thrilled when the Rojas family inquired about a multi-generation family session, and we decided the pier would be a gorgeous backdrop. Even though it was quite overcast, the setting was beautiful and serene, and the family was lovely!

When photographing multi-generations, it’s so important to me to get lots of photos of the different combinations of the family and I love that we took the time to capture all these sweet relationships !

Being a mom, I can truly appreciate the dynamics of little girls, sisters, and especially love capturing who the littles are, being true to themselves!

The littlest one kept us all on our toes, and I love what we captured!

I love what we captured and hope the Rojas family enjoyed our time at the beach together!

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!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // maternity photos, belly photos, San Diego maternity photography, pregnancy photo session, maternity photography, beach, La Jolla, CA

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!
