I met Andrea online through the San Diego Special Needs Support group on Facebook. I was in need of a friend, and she reached out to me. I’m so glad she did. When we shared our stories with each other, we were able to be a encouragement and be a support for one another.
This mama is such a strong mama (even if she doesn’t feel like it). Her youngest is special needs and had a stroke in utero and he has Cerebral Palsi. But despite the challenges that come with being a special needs family, there is so much love in this family.  It was truly blessing and a pleasure to be able to be this family’s Family Photographer and have some fun at the Scripps Pier in La Jolla!

Having a special needs child comes with a lot of hardship and a lot of trips to the hospital and specialists. Andrea and her family have a GoFundMe account and if you would like to donate to help ease their burden.

I got to meet this mama from a Poway mom’s facebook group. In the past they had had not great experiences with photographers so I wanted to put my best foot forward for her and her family! In addition, I also went outside my normal “sunset” time and had their family session at 4pm.

I’m so beyond excited about how the McDonnell family session turned out!! Let me tell you, the lighting was beyond beautiful! Don’t take my word for it, check out their session!

I had the pleasure of meeting Jaclyn and Mike for their maternity session. These two were so adorable together and anyone could tell they were over the moon excited for their little miss to arrive. Once little miss came earth-side, Jaclyn got in touch with me and we immediately made plans for me to come over. I had no idea what I was going to walk into when I arrived at their house. I instantly got excited as everything was so white and chic and beautiful….and they had JUST moved in a few weeks earlier. As you can tell, her favorite color is white and it totally worked for their newborn lifestyle session! Lil miss’ session was a dream and I’m still in love with how it turned out. Every time I see the moments of Jaclyn and Mike swooning over their daughter…my heart melts…every single time.

Little miss is so well loved. mom and dad, you are doing such a great job already loving your little one, keep up the great work! Congrats Hornacek Family!!!

I went back home to Central California for Thanksgiving and took advantage of the different scene than from San Diego. I’m so loving how these turned out and Mr Guster was such a good sport about posing for me! He was a natural! Loved the love him and his mamma share with each other!

I must say, I got so excited when I saw the Grell family step out of their car. Elizabeth completely knocked it out of the park with their wardrobe! Not only was their clothing on point, but the location just added to their awesome family session! I loved how I literally had to give them direction only 20% of the time, the rest was ALL them! I kept finding myself saying “Oh, I like what you did there, keep that pose” or “that was great, do that again!” I kept asking them if they’ve done this a lot, and to my surprise, this was only their 3rd time doing family photos. Could have fooled me!

Thanks Grell family for a super fun family session! Your kids are adorable and have so much love for each other!
