M Boys at Balboa Park {Sneak Peek}

Sometimes, I feel like there’s magic photo-fairy-dust in the air at a photo session! Between the light, my subjects, the location… sometimes it all just comes together beautifully and magically! These boys were such a treat and blast to work with and I’m thrilled to share them with you!

We’ve kept in touch and I was able to work with the whole family last year for a photo session as well. The boys have grown so much over this last year and I love that I’m able to work with them again, getting to know them a bit better and seeing even more of their personalities!

They’re all such sweet and charming young men! For as young as they are, they truly did great at our session, listening, taking direction, sharing the spotlight and having fun! They really were a blast to photograph and I look forward to seeing them again soon.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Make sure not to miss any future posts by signing up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list here! You’ll get a great little freebie download as my thank you!

K Family Sneak Peek {Photo Session}

One of the things I love about San Diego, is that although it is a big city, it really has a small town feel. Lots of beautiful sights, friendly people and a great sense of community. When I arrive at an on-location photo session and realize the family that booked my session online (who I didn’t think I knew) turns out to be a family I knew from a couple years back? Such a sweet surprise and really brings in that small town feel 🙂

R, the little boy in this family, went to pre-school with my baby girl! He’s always been such a cutie! It was an absolute pleasure spending time with him and getting to know his family at our fantastic photo session.

We enjoyed the afternoon at Balboa Park and all of it’s wonderful architecture. I love it there so much, that I tend to lose track of time and just keep photographing! The family was wonderful and the boys did a great job. Being the mom to similar aged kiddos, I know that keeping their attention span isn’t the easiest, but they did phenomenal! I even suggested mom and dad let them have double treats that day for doing such a great job!

D&J Twins Sneak Peek {Photo Session}

D&J are absolutely adorable one-month old twins I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing. I totally loved snuggling them between shots! You know, that baby smell, that soft skin, those little exhales as they sleep? So precious! Good thing I can get my baby fix with friends and clients since my baby girls are getting so big so fast!

M Family Sneak Peek {Photo Session}

Sometimes I can’t believe how fortunate I am to get to do what I love! And I’m blessed that through the awesomeness of Facebook, old friends see what I do and ask me to capture some memories for them, too! That’s exactly what happened with here – I’ve known Marie for over 20 years, and I was so excited she reached out about a photo session for her family. They were so much fun to work with. The boys were super adorable! Their communication and bonds with each other are beyond precious. Did I mention one knows how to speak whale? He taught me a word or two : )

Their mommy and I discussed the dynamics of three kids being comparable to a see-saw… you usually have two up / being good, one down / challenging, and it’s very hard to balance all three on the same level! And even though the saying is “boys will be boys”and they certainly wanted to play with the trains… overall, they really were great!

Even a pensive shot was a quick grab as the laughs quickly took over! Overall, they really let their personalities shine through – I loved the laughter and silliness!
