The holidays are such a great time for families to come together from near and far to enjoy time together. But incorporating a fabulous vacation for that get together, in particular traveling to a beautiful destination like San Diego? Now that’s a way to vacation AND bond with loved ones!

I was blessed to be contacted by J, the wonderful matriarch of this lovely family for a photo session while she and her family vacationed in San Diego! We arranged for a beach photo session with the hopes of beautiful, picture-perfect San Diego weather. Mother Nature had other plans! It was really cold, incredibly windy and overcast. It even sprinkled a bit during our session! Luckily bright overcast skies work well for photography as it’s God’s gift of a natural diffuser, and for that I am thankful. But the gusty winds and drizzle? That we could’ve done without! Luckily, the family were all troopers and we captured some lovely images!

I was honored to be trusted to capturing these memories of their family during their visit to La Jolla! I loved our photo session and hope J and her family did as well!

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!

Multi Generation M Family {Sneak Peek}

Capturing extended families together brings me so much joy!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Multi-generation family photo session at Balboa Park, San Diego, CAWhen you think about how America was founded, it was individuals and families leaving their loved ones behind to bravely travel, plant themselves in foreign land, and grow roots. So although it’s been happening for as long as time, I know it’s hard to see our loved ones move away, whether it’s out of the neighborhood, out of state or to a foreign country. Nowadays, so many families have loved ones scattered across the country, or even across the globe. And that’s especially when I love being a photographer, and being asked to capture family portraits while all the loved ones are in one spot!

I was ecstatic when the M family contacted me for a multi-generation family photo session. The love, joy and camaraderie between all the family was lovely to see! We did get lucky with the San Diego sunshine, but boy-oh-boy was it cold that day! I know we can’t really complain, but really, for San Diego? It was freezing cold! The entire family were troopers and we kept trucking along with jackets and hugs for warming up between shots!

I loved the session and hope the M family did as well! Happy New Year!

M Family – 3 Generations! {Sneak Peek}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // extended family photos, rustic park, trains, tracks, pink, gray, denim, adorable!Gorgeous, handsome, funny, adorable, sweet, sassy, rugged, sophisticated, silly, endearing, genuine… I could go on and on with adjectives describing this ah-ma-zing family! The love and bond this family shares is beyond apparent. They were such a pleasure and privilege to photograph!

The little cutie pie with the fabulous dimples is in my first-graders class, so I’ve had the lovely opportunity to get to know her, her mama and big sister over the past few months. I was honored when her mama called and said she and her siblings wanted to gift a photo session to their parents for Christmas. So incredibly thoughtful! Clearly their parents have done an amazing job raising such great kids! And the grand-daughter in my daughter’s class is sweet, smart and adorable, so clearly the fantastic parenting continues : )

They really were a blast to work with and I hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I did! Really, I can’t help but say it… I’m so blessed to do what I love and love what I do!
