Encinitas Photography

The Garo Family

I met Jon and Sarah a long time ago, when they chose me to photograph their engagement session. It was great to see them again after so many years, this time, with their two boys. It was an Encinitas photography session that I will remember for a long time.

We started the session at a park near my home. I use this location a lot for portrait sessions because it’s always empty, and provides great lighting and background. The kids were actually excited to have their pictures taken, and that is always a plus. Consequently, the first hour of photos were very productive.  Location is a huge part of your family session.

After some park photos, we decided it was time to reward the kids (and adults) with some ide cream. We drove to downtown Encinitas , to my favorite ice cream shop, Handel’s Homemade Ice cream. I always recommend a quick break for something fun when photographing families with young children. It’s great to a quick reset, and to get them ready for more photos! During my Encinitas photography sessions, this is my place to go.

it was then close to sunset time, and we headed to the beach, still in Encinitas. Once again, the children was just happy to be out with their family, and the session flowed very easy. We made sure to leave enough time to alternate between playing and formal portraits. That way, we ensured that the kids were not going to burn down too quickly.

It was another successful Encinitas photography session. It’s always great to see old clients, and be assured that they enjoyed the experience with me. I hope to be a part of many more family sessions with the Garo’s. It’s always fun to be around.
