This gorgeous trio was so much fun to photograph! Their cutie pie toddler son kept me on my toes running around Old Poway Park! And as with any toddler, he had his own agenda for our morning at the park!

I love working with families! Sometimes mama’s with younger children, like both kids 5 and under, get a little nervous about booking a photo session. But I seriously LOVE working with families with kids and little of all ages! In all reality, those kiddos will never be as small or as true to themselves as they are right now! So I was thrilled to meet and photograph the Brownell family ❤

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

Summer, graduations, weddings, babies, holidays – so many awesome reasons to spend time with family! The Stachowski family kicked off their summer celebrations with a high school graduation. And since family was coming together from out-of-state, they took the opportunity to schedule family photos – such smarties!

When families, like the Stachowski’s, come together from across the country, it’s such a wonderful idea to get professional photos taken! And when there are so many generations, I love focusing on the different groups – the entire family, the individual families, the grandkids, couples, siblings, etc. Always so great to have so many photo opportunities!

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!

I’ve shared lots about my daughters, and I just have to share these shots from earlier in the year. I had an assignment due for my Practice class with Katrina Kennedy at Capture Your 365 (#CY365) The assignment was experimenting with custom temperature settings on your camera. Haven’t done it? Yeah, I hadn’t either! Definitely explore that capability. I am still in awe!

{Side Note: The Practice! Class runs for a full year and we still have 4 months left. If you’re looking to make practicing your photography a priority and are looking for a class, this is IT! There’s even a mid-year discount on it. Check it out!}

After a very busy few weeks, I had to squeeze in my Practice assignment at the very last minute. Luckily, we were headed to the Girl Scout store in order to get my 7 yr olds Brownie uniform in preparation of her bridging from Daisy to Brownie, and were conveniently down the street from Balboa Park.

During the class webinar and live critique, a fellow photographer (and friend) commented on the barn doors in the shot. They are quite lovely, aren’t they?! But truth be told, they’re actually the doors to the carousel in the park. The carousel doesn’t run often, I think it’s only on weekends, but I’m not sure if the summer schedule is any different? But I digress… back to me and my photos and offering you some tips 🙂

The reason I mention the doors is because over the years, I think I’ve honed my skill of noticing backgrounds, textures and locations to use for photography. Do you take the time to notice what’s right in front of you and easily accessible? So much beauty that isn’t necessarily seen as beautiful from the get-go. {Click on the photos below to link to the original blog posts featuring that specific image and more!}
