Family portrait session 07.22.07
We did the whole family, and each family individually.
These were all done at the San Diego County Building downtown, near their hotel. As luck would have it, just as we had finished shooting, the sprinkler system went off!! A few people got pretty wet, but it was pretty funny.

High School Senior portraits at the Hotel Del Coronado
First we started at the hotel, in a floral outfit.
Then a quick clothing change and a few more in the grassy area at the hotel.
She'll kill me for posting this one, but Mom will love me for it.
Then it was out to the beach! Another overcast night at the beach - perfect for photography.
Yes, Photoshop not only removes blemishes but changes the weather as well. Where did that blue sky come from????
And lastly a little Photoshopped number along the wall.
Family beach photos at the Hotel Del 07.20.07
First the entire family, complete with the fake blue sky (sssssssh, it'll be our little secret).
Next a couple of individual families (no fake blue sky here, just the real deal - grey).
And finally one last individual family, with a smoocharino from the little guy!

Without further delay, here they are. First off the entire family.
Next one of my personal favorites, Grandma & Grampa with the Grandkids. Love this one.
A couple of individual families.
And finally a post-sunset stroll on the beach for these two love birds.

Family Beach Portraits at the Hotel Del 07.19.07
Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad and three kids - a group of seven nicely dressed in black (I'm a big fan of black, wish more people would wear black instead of white).
And finally the reflection shot.
Family Beach Portraits at the Hotel Del 07.16.07
It was a beautifully overcast evening, perfect for photography. No harsh sun to deal with - yippee!
This shot is typically impossible on a sunny day...but easily done on an overcast day.
Mom was celebrating a birthday, so we did a few closeups of her to help her celebrate and remember the occasion.

High School Senior Portraits at Crystal Pier 07.17.07
This evening I had the pleasure of photographing Samantha, a High School Senior from Nebraska. Our session was at the Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach.
Samantha brought a variety of outfits, and we shot for a good two hours, going well after sun down. The beach was overcast tonight, good for even lighting but no colorful sunset.
We did get a great variety of shots around the pier and a few over on the lifeguard tower as well.
And finally a closeup. Moms always love a closeup. ;)

Family beach session at the Hotel Del 07.15.07
This evening I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the Castillo family, from San Diego, Oakland and Atlanta.
And as luck would have it - it was overcast! Thank God, finally a beach session that wasn't in full sun! Phew. No sun meant we could actually get some photos with the hotel in the background.
This young lady wanted a few photos of herself.
Just the kids here.

Family beach photos at the Hotel Del Coronado
We shot in several different places on the beach, and got a lot of great differnt angles and photos. Here's a very cool silhouette.
It was a perfect night at the beach, and throughout the evening we were treated to dolphins swimming just off shore. We also got some cool photos with the waves crashing in behind them.
The Garrisons officially are the current leaders in the "Best Sunset of 2007" category. The sunset last night was amazing!
