2014 | Best of Family Photography San Diego

I’m so thankful for all of my families that took this journey with me in 2014. I love each of them and I am so very blessed to have made new friends along the way.

And so thankful for the growth 2014 showed. I finally figured out how to balance having 2 babes and a business (for the most part). This couldn’t have been achieved without my wildly supportive husband – thank you Andy!   I will still only book 4 portrait sessions per month in ‘15 to maintain our busy schedule, but it will enable me to give you all that I’ve got.   I just can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store! Xo, Patty

The Norton Family | Oceanside Family Photographer

I met Korie through mutual friends in the wedding industry. She’s the type of gal that you feel an instant ‘soul sister’ connection with. That’s a great thing since we are together for at least 7 hours on our clients wedding day! On top of her kind and genuine demeanor, she kicks some serious butt at her job. She goes above and beyond the-call-of-duty for everyone throughout the entire wedding planning process; and is enthusiastic and joyous about it. It almost doesn’t feel like it’s a job when you are around her.  More so, she is an exceptional mother, and she is GREAT at it. To see her gigantic smile when she snuggled her boys made my heart melt. They both are so lucky to have her, as she is so lucky to have them.

I love The San Luis Rey Mission – the property never disappoints. The area marvels me and my camera each time I photograph there. I think we got the BEST photo at sunset with the Mission’s architecture in the backdrop, and a hint of orange hue of light.

Thank you Korie and your two loves for a fun and memorable afternoon. I’m truly honored to have captured you and your boys on this warm December afternoon. Xoxo, Patty

The Mascia Family | Carlsbad Family beach photographer

It’s been a while since I blogged a family beach photography shoot, and I am so happy that my first one of the year is of the Mascia Family. My 3rd annual shoot with them was probably the best! The recent years have been so fun too but this year was different. Anderson, their 3-yr-old was all smiles, loooved the camera and since I have a son of my own now, it was ‘motherly different’. It was also so nice to take advantage of once again, a warm winter on the beach.

Lauren, Anthony and Anderson, thank you from the bottom-of-my heart for trusting me for a third year-in-a-row, and for allowing me to document this joyous, and fun afternoon that I had with you! And, your lil’ boots Lauren, I must have them! Haha! Big love to you all, xo, Patty

Fellows Family | Los Penasquitos Ranch House Family Session

The selection of photos from Jen + Shane’s family session at the gorgeous Los Penasquitos Ranch House wasn’t easy, as they ALL were stunning. Since they both are admired and extremely talented photographers themselves, co-owners & husband + wife team at Acqua Photo, I had my work cut out for me! Their session actually turned out to be one of the most fun and beautiful family sessions to date (as you can see they are great in front of the camera – as well as behind!) Their Free-spirit nature and Jen’s “Free Spirit” wardrobe went perfectly with the rolling hills and growing grasses of Los Penasquitos Ranch House. Their daughter Nakoa, wore Jen’s very own toddler shoes when she was a little one which I thought was a perfect preservation of a family keepsake.

Thank you Jen, Shane and Nakoa for a relaxed, fun and sweet afternoon full of kisses and snuggles on frame!  Xoxo, Patty

The Beverly Family | Leo Carillo Ranch | Carlsbad Family Photography

The Beverly Family is very special to us. They have four sweet, smart and amazing children and whenever we get together we eat Mexican food, (haha! I am just realizing this). Katie and I met at Jessica Claire workshop in Orange County in 2011.  We sat next to each other in a cute room, filled with 12 internationally talented photographers hungry to learn more from Jessica. Unbeknownst to me, the gal sitting next to me lived 5 houses down from me in Carlsbad.  That gal was Katie. Totally random. Totally cool. And totally grateful for meeting her that day.

So, when we are not photographing everyone else, we find some time to photograph each other’s families. We shot at Leo Carillo Ranch in Carlsbad California one evening and what you can see is perfection of the light and love around them. Props to her mom and sister for helping me out with some great assisting.

Katie, Mike and the mini-Bev’s, thank you for the honor of letting me photograph this time in your lives. I hope this is the first of many to come!  Xoxo, Patty
