Windansea Beach Wedding – La Jolla, CA

Just a preview Melanie & Kyle’s beach wedding & sunset wedding reception from Windansea Beach in La Jolla…

We did a trial run on the beach with their engagement photos as well….


Family Portraits

We intended to take these on the beach, but as happens often with children, they have other plans. Ha, ha! I think that it all worked out for the best actually, as the lighting in the shade provided us with some beautiful portraits!

Holiday Card Family Portrait Time

The Shack at Windansea was the perfect backdrop for the Levine’s Family Portrait on the Beach…

And a little silliness, just for good measure…

The Definition of Family

I met the Humphreys’ at Windansea Beach in La Jolla the day after Thanksging for family photos on the beach. What a great representation of what the holiday is all about – a joyful family thankful for their time together. Lucky me to have the opportunity to capture their ever expanding group!

Another spectacular day at Balboa Park, around the Botanical Garden Lily Pond and Spanish Art Village

Oh Windansea, I Just Can’t Get Enough

In addition to Windansea Beach being one of my favorite locations on this planet, I got to take pictures for an awesome family there last weekend. As we wrapped up our time together and I pulled away, I could not help but feel extremely grateful that this is my ‘job’.

Photo Booth Santa and Families on the Beach

It was a chilly overcast morning, and the clouds were threatening, but the warm outfits made for perfect Christmas card photos! The rain literally started to fall as we wrapped the last session…whew! (I will admit that I was a bit nervous when I woke up that morning and saw the forecast calling for rain at 9am.) We took these underneath the Pacific Beach Pier.

Windansea Sunset Family Portraits

Although a bit chilly this evening out at Windansea Beach in La Jolla, the clouds provided sunset peak views and perfect lighting for the Miller’s family portraits. Here is a little sneak peak…

San Diego Beach Baby

San Diego’s version of a photo shoot reschedule due to weather: These guys wanted the warm cozy Christmas sweater look for this year’s card. Well, it was so hot out this October morning that the coats, scarves and sweaters had to come off fast! The good news is, it worked out perfectly for bare baby butt photos! THE CUTEST!!! We shot these on the sands of La Coast Walk Park beach.

A Neighborhood as a Canvas

We shot these on a unique little one way street off of Windansea Beach in La Jolla. I am thinking of running a contest to see if anyone can guess what is making Charlotte so happy in her series of fence photos. (I keep cracking up thinking about it.)
