Downtown San Diego Portrait Session: Matt, Mia, and Nala

Downtown San Diego Portrait Session: Matt, Mia, and Nala

For months, Matt, along with his girlfriend Mia, talked about the potential of adopting a puppy. A simple mention of a puppy is when the anticipation began for them and their friends, myself included, all along for the ride of this puppy adoption process. I love dogs and absolutely believe they become family members once they join a household, so to be a part of the build up for this puppy's arrival was so exciting!

At a few weeks of age, Matt and Mia's fur-baby came home - Nala arrived! - and to celebrate her and their new 'family extension,' portraits were a must! Nala will only be this little once in her life, as she'll grow up to be a full sized Goldendoodle, so now was the best time to capture her, and to see both Matt and Mia beam with joy was an absolute pleasure!

Sunset Cliffs Portraits: Tom & Adam

Sunset Cliffs Portraits: Tom & Adam

Tom and Adam met in Philadelphia when Tom frequented the gym where Adam worked the front counter. A year of flirtation and one gym staff/member party later, Tom and Adam were a couple.

Fast forward 5+ years, Tom and I meet. He likes to talk, I like to talk, and we both moved from the East Coast to San Diego: insta-friends! It wasn't until Tom started leaving funny comments on my Instagram account photos (i.e. "Stop taking photos of other men. It makes me jealous! Haha")  that we decided to plan a portrait session for him and Adam to showcase their love and glimpse of their new West Coast home.

Balboa Park Family Portraits: Nick & Matt

Balboa Park Family Portraits: Nick & Matt

Nick approached me with the idea to take photos of his brother, Matt, and him to present to their Mom on Mother's Day. I, of course, said yes: I am a huge believer that photos make great gifts, so we headed to Balboa Park in San Diego for a multi-outfit photo shoot.

The day after Mother's Day, I received an email from Nick and Matt's mother, who let me know that the photos were "the best Mother's Day gift besides the Siamese kitten 4 years ago. I have wanted nice pictures for 20 year and finally have them." What can I say? It's hard to compete with kittens! Ha!
