Oceanside Maternity Photographer, Marisa McDonald, here with a lovely sunset session and a gorgeous mama in RED!! I have had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family several years in a row and I could not be more thrilled for them and their new addition. They have so much love to share as evidenced by the fact that love is literally overflowing from their adorable little boy. Baby sister will be the perfect addition! I hope you enjoy all of these precious moments in the foothills of Oceanside!
By the way, Fall is here, if you haven’t noticed! Yes its HOT but the PSL is out and so is my Fall calendar! You can reserve your date here!
Looking for a Los Penasquitos Canyon Family Photographer? Look no further and enjoy this lovely sunset session from the Canyon! I knew this session was going to be epic! Why? Well because I already knew this family and how amazing they are! I’ve had the joy of teaching their their oldest daughter photography for almost a year. Not only is she amazingly talented as a young photographer (check out her insta!) but she’s also incredibly smart and sweet and beautifully real just like the rest of her family. I knew they would be game for lots of exploring so that’s just what we did! They surprised me with the guitars and I could not have been more thrilled. I think they really added a touch of relaxed, authenticity to some of the moments I captured, don’t you?
This Oceanside family rocked their beach photo session! They arrived with gorgeous styling and ready to have FUN! Even while minding Covid-19 social distancing requirements, I loved getting to know these four. I think you’ll see their personalities shine in these images.
Oceanside Photographer, Marisa McDonald, here, sharing one of my favorite recent sunset maternity sessions! This beautiful lady is someone my family knows and loves and I already have inside information that she is going to be an AMAZING mother!
This was one of my first sessions back after the Covid-19 shutdowns and my first opportunity to practice “socially distanced” photography in Oceanside. Its definitely something new to get used to but not a deal beaker AT. ALL! I coach my subjects from a distance and even “act it out” if I have to (Which means extra entertainment for you, haha! You’re welcome!). I bring my longest lenses to ensure I still get all the gorgeous close ups. I make it work and ensure that nothing changes in the gorgeousness you expect in your portraits…and most importantly, I do everything I can to reduce your risk of exposure to Covid-19. The health and safety of you and your loved ones is most important to me!
By the way this month I’m participating in a blog circle with some super talented photographers and I have the honor of sharing this beautiful post about St. Petersburg, Florida (somewhere I know and love!!) from Alison Brett who offers Beach Photography in Tampa Bay. I love her perspective on your family as Art and I totally agree!
Lifestyle Newborn Photography in San Clemente on the blog today! This sweet little session is sure to bring a smile to your face. Not only was baby simply precious but the family’s two pups made a special appearance, watching over their newest family member. Should you include the dogs? The answer is ALWAYS yes! I’m a firm believer that dogs and kids always add a layer of authenticity to any photograph. They make sure we’re all keeping it real!
