I love it when moms take the time to get into the frame of the shots for some mommy and me photos! I hear over and over again, “I take so many photos of my spouse and children, but *I’m* never in the shot!” While visiting the San Diego area this summer I was so glad to photograph this sweet mom and her daughter and get some really lovely shots for their family!
San Diego County Mommy and Me Photos
Isn’t this just the most beautiful meadow? I understand that it’s a prime spot for viewing the gorgeous San Diego sunsets and (maybe!!) catching a glimpse of the elusive green flash?
I love to capture a few quiet moments…
…and some silly ones!
That glow! That hair! That smiles! Those wild oats!
I can’t get over how beautiful the light was! Sign me up any day for fields of pale grasses!!
I love this giggly moment!
Hi! Former plant biologist here! There were the coolest little shrubs all throughout this field. I love subtle greens, reds, and oranges they added to the backgrounds of this photo shoot!
I love how their hair catches the sunshine!
Sometimes it’s nice to just have some more traditional portraits all by yourself! I aim to switch things up and get clients a lot candid, posed, and prompted variety in their galleries!
Awww some of my favorite shots of the whole day!
Looking off into the distance…there were lots of horse pastures around and you can imagine that was a pretty interesting attraction.
Also, I totally love the flow and detail on the back of mom’s cardigan!
What a gorgeous shoot with gorgeous clients!! Let’s do another one soon!
