We've Got A Runner! | Carlsbad Family Photographer

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” —Earl Nightingale

One thing that stands out about this family is the way they have embraced the fierce independence of their awesome little girl. I could not get enough of her. As you will see, we shot the entire session around what she wanted to do and we all rolled with it. I am not the photographer you go to for traditional family portraiture. While I always do a handful of “framers” for your grandparents, the rest of my sessions are dedicated to capturing your family as you are authentically. It has been such a struggle for me to break new clients of the traditional and lean more into the uniqueness that makes their family one-of-a-kind. And if I dare to be even more honest, imagine if I posed you for every shot? What would I post here or on social media? It would be the same poses and I would be dropping your family right into the. same. exact. photo. That simply isn’t for me.

So as you scroll, imagine the giggles, the sass, the smiles, and the excitement this lil’ thing exudes. You will see why her parents look so proud!
