Orange County | Newport Beach | Family Photographer » The P Family

Who doesn’t love sandy feet, salty beach air, sunshine and a family session in Newport Beach. I don’t think there could be a better combination for a good day. Throw in this adorable family, a beautiful Spring day in Newport Beach, and it’s now my cup overfloweth with laughter. SO. MUCH. FUN.

I love my job as a photographer for so many reasons. And I’m serious when I say that…SO MANY reasons. I get to share moments like this session with some amazing people whom I get to call my friends. I have photographed them their entire lives. I’ve watched them grow up on in front of my lens! And I also get to watch them grow up on their mom’s social media pages. It warms my heart that they have invited me into their lives. I get to capture their story every single year.

It fills my soul watching my families grow up. I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to experience the parenthood journey with my families. When you know the kiddos since birth, you become so connected to them in such a way that is unexplainable. So, when we’re playing around in the sand, it makes me so happy that I get to play a small part in creating these memories of their childhood for them.

This year, we rolled around on the sandy Newport Beach shores while wearing the cutest little dresses (the girls, not me — LOL) for their family session. You know you’ve had a good time when you get home and you find sand everywhere – in the pockets of your jeans, in your hair and maybe, even in your underwear. But I wouldn’t trade that mess for anything in the world, it fills my soul and c’ mon…it’s only a little bit of sand, right? XO
