Last night I had a fun evening photographing the Williams family (a group of ten, including a handsome seven month old). It was very windy at the beach, which would not have been good for people with long hair, not to mention it was making for some pretty big crashing waves against the rocks and a high tide.

So we started inside the hotel where there was no wind:


Then it was out to the beach. The sun was lower, and the wind died down (just as I had planned….)

Tonight I had a great time photographing the Viesca family at the Hotel Del Coronado. A family of five, including Joey a Golden Retreiver. We started out in front of the hotel shooting some photos in the shade.

Then it was off to the beach for some great sunset family beach photos starting with Mom and Dad:

And a reflection photo to finish things off:

Tonight I met with the Kosier family at the Hotel Del Coronado for some beach photos. Their Son is just a few months younger than ours, and he was great to work with.

We started at the courtyard and then moved out to the beach for a beautiful sunset. Here are a few of the photos from our session.


Out to Coronado Beach, I call this one “Flying over the Hotel Del”:

We had a perfectly clear sky tonight, great for silhouette photos:

More flying:

Finally a posed shot right at sunset:

Tonight I had the privlege of photographing the Belasco family at the beach. It was really warm when we got down there but cooled off a little by sunset. It was perfectly clear, we had a beautiful sunset and best of all – dolphins! A group of 5-6 dolphins swam by right in the middle of our photo shoot, it was awesome!

Here are a few photos from the session.
