Tonight I met with the Kosier family, vacationing in San Diego from Phoenix, AZ. This is our fourth photo shoot with the Kosiers, two in San Diego and two at their home in Phoenix.

We shot an extended session, starting at the hotel and moving out to the beach. Here are a few sneak peeks from their photo shoot:

The Three Brothers - Children's Beach Photos at the Hotel Del Coronado

Tonight I met with Chad, Bret and Wade.....and Suzee and Pam and Carolyn at the Hotel Del Coronado. A Grandma, her two Daughters, and three Grandsons, but the boys stole the show. Boys will be boys as they say and these three certainly held up their end of the deal.

We had a blast shooting some more formal shots at the hotel and then some uber-fun photos out at the beach and in the water.

Here are several favorite photos from tonight's photo shoot:

First a formal family portrait in the garden area, with the boys looking quite stoic.

Blah diddy blah diddy blah...let's have some fun!!! Ok, quite possibly the best silhouette photograph ever.

Did someone say THREE brothers? Time for the hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil pose:

Ok, ok, ok, another more formal shot of Mom and her three boys.

More fun, let's climb the lifeguard tower!!!

Then the boys get permission to get into the water....ahhh the look of surprise.

This one is totally blurry, but this is right about the time that Wade makes his splashdown.

And this is the look that I got when he got up out of the water. My three year old saw this photo on my screen and said "Oooooh, he's got his MAD FACE on!" LOL

This morning I met with Patti and her Daughters Amelia and Alexa at Balboa Park for some children's photos. Amelia was quite the ham, and although Alexa didn't want to stray too far from her Mommy, we still got some super cute photos of her as well.

Here are a few previews from our children's session at Balboa Park in San Diego this morning:

This morning I met with Mira and her family for some photos of their newborn baby Hanna. She was a perfect little model, barely put up much of a fuss. Her older brother was a typical 2.5 year old, but despite his best efforts we still got some cute photos of him. ;)

San Diego Engagement Photos in La Jolla Shores

Tonight I met with Destany and AJ at La Jolla Shores for some fun (and wet) engagement photos. We had a blast and it took just a little coaxing but they eventually got in the water...if it wasn't for that last wave, they wouldn't have gotten that wet, either.

Here are a few favorite photos from AJ & Destany's engagement photos at La Jolla Shores Beach....

San Diego Studio Photography - Professional Studio Portraits

Today I met with Kevin for some professional studio portraits. Guys are always so much more difficult to pose and shoot than girls. We used a variety of backdrops and lighting techniques to mix it up, and it helped that Kevin brought several different looks with him.

Here are a few early favorites from Kevin's studio session:

Windandsea Beach Family Photography San Diego

San Diego Family Portrait Photography

Last night I met with the West family at Windandsea Beach in La Jolla for some family portraits. The tide was way in so we didn't have much of a beach to work with, but we made the best of it.

We had a nicely overcast but warm evening, and I noticed two or three other Photographer working the beach as well. Windandsea Beach is a very popular location with Photographers because of the beautiful La Jolla scenery, but it's less known to tourists.

Here is a small sample of the beach photos that we got with the West family at Windandsea Beach...

Here is the whole family with an offset crop - nice for Christmas cards, etc:
