365 project-March 2019/San Diego Portrait Photography/personal

So out of 30 days I only have 10 images for the month of March, I’m thinking I should put a reminder in my phone to take a photo a day. I’ve noticed doing this project has made me pay attention to details and thinking outside of the box or my norm of shooting.

Copeland Family

Family isn’t defined only by last names or by blood; its defined by commitment and love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other’s backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other!
— Dave Willis

I have been photographing the Copeland family since their oldest was just a little newborn. I am so honored to be trusted with each and every family I capture. I adore shooting families and realize how incredibly important it is to capture each stage. I strive for my photos to tell more than words can. My goal at each session is to capture you just as you are, come as you are.

These images will be cherished when your littles have littles of their own. Often times looking back at my own family photos has brought so much appreciation and I am reminded what is the most important thing in my life when my eyes gets blurry and I lose focus.

365 Project

One of my goals this year was to take more photos of our everyday life as a family. Not only to document such a precious year as my littles grow up but to stretch and grow my photography skills. Best decision, I can’t tell you how precious these photos are to me. I haven’t put too much pressure on myself, I only took 14 out of the first 31 days of 2019…….grace. I also need to jot down a little note for each image so I don’t forget why I took a particular frame and what it means to me.
