when we are not shooting a wedding in san diego, we are often shooting a family portrait session in san diego. sometimes we do a portrait session in balboa park. other times we go where the turf meets the surf for fun family photos on the beach. this session however, was different for us on many levels. sure, it was a family, and it was in san diego, but it was so much more than that. it was shot in a quiet home. a home with a lot of family memories, old and new.
these are the very first professional photos of our good friends masen and jen with their freshly hatched first child elliott (that were not taken by masen himself). they were taken in the home masen grew up in. the same home elliott will grow up in. being there, i couldn’t help but to think of all the family history this home holds, and is still to witness. i’m just corny like that. i guess it just stirred up happy memories of my grandparents house. but i digress :)
to this day we are still completely humbled when awesome wedding photographers, like ma5en, hire us to do portrait sessions for them. we are even more blown away when they ask us to take photos of their family. this… this was just a whole new kind of honor. being asked to take masen and jen’s first family photos with baby elliott was just awesome. we are so happy for them, and so proud to have been a part of this.
please join us in congratulating masen and jen as we introduce you to their ohana.
on a side note masen and jen, i hope you don’t ever plan on trying to say “NO” to these big beautiful puppy-dog eyes. we wish you the best of luck.
she is going to play you like mario bros :)
masen and jen, we can not possibly thank you enough for hiring us to do this for you. it was a HUGE honor.
elliott is a beautiful beginning to your ohana. that’s right, i said beginning. not end. i believe i speak for everyone that loves you when i say…
get crackin on making more beautiful children like elliott! :)
we are going to love watching her grow with you, and seeing lots more pictures!
