While we were in San Diego earlier in the year, we were lucky enough to photograph the lovely McGuckin family. We met the McGuckin’s when big sister was a brand-new baby; G was the first newborn we ever photographed! Over the years we have not only photographed this family on multiple occasions, but also grown to call them friends. Suffice it to say, we were sad when they moved to San Diego….until I got a call from Scott telling me he wanted to surprise Janelle with beach portraits for her birthday. Anyone who knows us at all knows that we visit San Diego several times per year (James’ family lives there and we used to, too!) and welcome requests for portrait sessions while we visit. This session was one of those that just had everything going for it: a perfect day, gorgeous family, and more love than we can describe. The session took place on Coronado Beach with Pt. Loma just off in the background, which was especially cool because both Scott and Janelle attended Pt. Loma University. We were thrilled about everything surrounding this session, but most of all, just the chance to get to see some old friends/clients in such a gorgeous setting!
If you’re looking at the images wishing you could have portraits like this someday, stay tuned….very soon we will be announcing San Diego sessions for June!
