Brothers | Child Portraits in North County, CA

San Diego Children’s Photographer

I was so excited when M requested a photo session in North County, CA for her family.  I have known her for a few years, and although she lives in LA and we don’t get to see each other often, when we do, she always cracks me up and we have the best time!  So when she asked me to do a session, not only was I excited for a fun shoot, but helloooo… have you seen them – gorgeous!!  Those boys – oooh they are the cutest!

So Sunday, I was all excited for our session, looking up at our CLEAR and SUNNY skies, thinking, ‘sweet – it’s the perfect day for a family session’ – M had requested some backlit shots, so I thought everything was just perfect for our evening shoot.  In fact, I had been sitting by our pool all day long because it was so hot.  So I got in the car, with visions of backlit, sunny fields, faded glows… and then I hit the 805 freeway… OVERCAST skies alllll the way to my destination!  When I got there, I realized I had turned my AC from level 4 to… off!!  Eek!  It was gloomy, not that warm, and I had to say farewell with my sunny haze ideas, but the V family brought their own sun in the form of smiles and happiness… we had a wonderful time anyways and I think our session turned out pretty well!  I still snuck in a little fake sun in one of the shots, just for kicks, lol!
