pam, wiley, riley and hayley had one of those weeks that people across the country dream about. they flew out to california and hit just about every theme park in so-cal. they packed in all the family fun a week in california could hold. somewhere in between all that fun they found time to meet up with us in encinitas for some family photos. hayley and riley had energy to spare. riley broke his arm just before flying out to california, but that didn’t slow him down a bit.
with the kids hard at play, pam and wiley got to sit back and just enjoy each other’s company.
who wants to make mud pies?
i love just letting parents and their children be themselves in front of the camera.
hayley was loving her mommy-go-round.
kelp is fun for the whole family
kim’s not the only one that likes surfers.
hayley and riley were so much fun to follow around. they kept us on our toes (and on some rocks).
hop on pop
it makes my heart smile whenever i see two people that make each other happy. it was grinning big time seeing pam and wiley.
thank you pam and wiley for fitting us into your super busy fun-filled week in california. we really enjoyed meeting your ohana and getting to share a fun afternoon with you all.
we were blessed with such an awesome day. it had rained a little bit earlier, but was totally dry for our shoot. we even had the sun peek in on us for a bit. the water was warm, the surf was sweet, and the brunels could not have been any nicer to work with. what more could we ask for? nada.
when all our portrait fun was done we called it a wrap and went in search of kim and rain. where could they be?
we found them sitting on the beach checking the sweet surf and snapping a few shots of their own. kim shot this sequence. that guy’s pretty good (for a short boarder).
who’s ready to paddle out?
me me me me me!
