Vasona Park - Sneak Peek

Annie's family was all together for this holiday week. We rounded up the seven cousins for a family photo, but first was her little family of four.

Baby Veronica

Ah, look at this little lady. She was so awake and happy after my arrival. The whole shoot was so peaceful, I didn't want to leave. Her mama Kim had her older two away at pre-school and my two were off at school as well, so I think it was treat for us both to have a quiet morning just coo-ing at her two month old. Thanks for the lovely time Kim.

The McMasters Family at Pogonip

You often hear a mom say how cute her kids are, but you can't always agree. Well I have to agree with Linda on this one. She has a really cute bunch of kids!

They moved to the area a couple years ago to do a church plant in Santa Cruz, called Antioch Church. Our paths crossed a couple times in Santa Cruz and I was happy to finally get to know her more in depth at a bible study. Her and her family were happy to hike and explore nature on our photo shoot which was a fun change to the more stationary settings. She's a way down to earth mama with a mellow hubby to match. My style people. We had a mini hike around Pogonip in the fog, exploring trails and the old abandoned clubhouse. Maybe next time we can make it to the fish ponds.

The Ingram Family at Natural Bridges

This sweet bunch did family portraits with me about a year ago. The kids were pretty wiggly last year. This year was a better success with them in place. With a new business, Premier Physical Therapy , they wanted an updated family photo for their website. I'll have to bust out some dance moves or tickling feathers for the kids next time to get some smiles going for the formals. We had a fun time exploring the low tide and watching the sun sink down. It was good to catch up with them. Hopefully I'll get to shoot them again next year as they'll have a new one in the bunch.

The Hunsaker & York Family at Seabright Beach

These moms have been friends since grade school! Laura on the right, told me they meet shortly after kindergarten and have maintain their friendship all these years. Those are the best friendships. Almost like family. Effortless and full of love. They take an annual photo together for Christmas cards each year. It's usually a few attempts with a tripod, but this year- it was with me! Thanks for trekking across the beach with me.
