Our new canvas arrived

Our newest piece of home decor arrived yesterday - a 20x30 canvas of our Son down at Petco Park. One of my all time favorite photos of him. Here he is checking himself out:

And here it is hanging on the wall, between his bedroom and his play room.

San Diego Family Beach Photographer

Tonight I had a great time photographing the Tygielski family at the Hotel Del Coronado and beach. They live in Illinois, not far from where I grew up, and in Tucson where I'll be visiting next week doing some storm chasing (stay tuned for photos).

We started in the garden area and then moved out to the beach. Here are some favorites...

The kids at the gazebo:

And out to the beach....First the family walking on the beach, with the blues removed:

San Diego family beach photos

Friday evening I had met the Senn family at the Hotel Del Coronado beach for some family beach photos. We had a nice cool, overcast evening at the beach, unfortunately no colorful sunset, but great for portrait lighting.

We got a nice variety of beach photos, here are a few favorites from the photo shoot...

San Diego High School Senior Photos at the Hotel Del Coronado

This evening I had the pleasure of photographing Ashley and her family at the Hotel Del Coronado. It was a mostly cloudy night at the beach, which of course made for beautiful lighting conditions. The sun was nice enough to make an appearance as it neared the horizon, and we got some great photos of it setting.

Here are some of my favorites from tonight's shoot...

The Gazebo:

The Courtyard:

Out to the beach for some sunset photos:

And a couple of post-sunset beach photos:

San Diego Family Beach Photos in Del Mar

Thursday evening I had the pleasure of photographing the Dorn family from Scottsdale AZ at the beach in Del Mar. This was a new beach for me, I've never been to this location before. There was a nice park up above the beach that worked well for us, but the beach itself was pretty small, had a lot of people and to make matters worse the tide was up pretty high. But we made it work with what we had and thanks to a beautiful sunset we got some great photos. Herea are a few favorites.

Some individual photos of the girls up at the park:

Mom and dad up at the park:

Then it was down to the beach for some fun:

And finally a family sunset photo:
