Lexie and I met through a mutual friend, and I was excited when she told me she was interested in having photos done. She wanted it to be at a location with foliage, so we went to Marian Bear Park in San Diego, which is quite a popular place for other photographers -- there were other families around having photos done, and a man hiking, who is also a photographer, was giving us tips on where to go. It was a great location with the trails, trees, and the leaves changing color. Their adorable daughter was a champ, and did so well at having photos taken of her.
I had a great time photographing this family in downtown Oceanside. We started out by this fun, vibrantly painted wall, worked our way toward the pier, and finished off at the beach. Their sweet daughter started out a bit shy, but quickly warmed up to me behind the camera. Once we got to the beach, it was fun watching her play in the sand and run back and forth through the waves. Thanks for a fun evening at the pier!
