This amazing family got into the spirit when I showed up for their New Years extended session on the beach in Oceanside. I was so excited for this session because Tara and her children were one of my first ever family sessions I ever photographed. The children have grown so much, but it still feels like 2012 when I was capturing them on the beach in Monterey, CA.
This entire family came together to spend time in Oceanside for the holiday week. From Washington State, Colorado, and Utah, what a perfect time to visit San Diego. It was so fun to see the grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and siblings all having a great time together. They didn’t mind at all when it was time to get silly for me. I love the jumping shots as much as the posed shots, and I’m so glad they were up for it!
