Family Pictures

The Tekemotos

It was a beautiful winter afternoon, and I was very excited for those family pictures. The Tekemotos are a very special family for me.

I met Michelle and Glenn several yeas ago, when they were shopping for a wedding photographer. After a quick meeting, I was extremely happy they decided to go with me. They had a gorgeous destination wedding in Washington, and they went above and beyond to help me get some amazing shots. Yes, that’s them on the large photo on the cover of this website. This photo was only possible due to their incredible personality and will to create something awesome.

I had a great time doing Michelle and Glenn’s family pictures a few years ago. At the time, they were expecting their fist baby. This time, I was meeting their daughter, Eliana, for the first time outside the belly. They are expecting their second child, a little boy.

Michelle wanted to keep it close to their home. We decided on the San Clemente Trailhead. It’s not only a great place for family photos, but also really close to their home.

We started walking on the trail, looking for different spots to photograph. It was nice to catch up with old friends, as always. Eliana was a great child to photograph. Her enthusiasm for being out in the nature was contagious.

We hiked along the trail and found some great spots for family pictures! As always Michelle and Glenn were great as always, and above all, helped me created some awesome memories of their family.

It’s very gratifying when clients keep coming back, year after year. It’s great to be the one doing their family pictures, but above all, I love to be apart of their lives and history. 

I would like to thank Michelle and Glenn for the opportunity to work with them so often.
