Balboa Park Family Portraits: Erika, George, Olivia, and Parker

Balboa Park Family Portraits: Erika, George, Olivia, and Parker

It's been a year since I last photographed Erika, George, and their two awesomely fun kids, Olivia and Parker. A little older now, Olivia and Parker's personalities and sense of humor continue to grow and shine, especially in front of the camera. Their little faces lit up every time I mentioned Scooby Doo or tacos, two of their favorite things right now, and spolier alert: I got them to show me some of their dance moves!

Erika envisioned a clean backdrop at an iconic San Diego location for their family portraits, so the Organ Pavilion at Balboa Park perfectly fit the bill.

A high five in the air, take one: fail. But wait for it...

A high five in the air, take two: success!

Parker and Olivia had zero qualms about striking poses for me, especially when it involved fashionable accessories!

As if these two silly kids could not get any cuter and funner, their Christmas outfits turned them into dancing elves!

Erika and George, thank you for asking me to document your beautiful family year after year. I can't get enough of Olivia and Parker's unexpected reactions and poses. Finally, Erika, thank you for believing in me from day one, when I was still a New Yorker and had no idea I would eventually be a full time photographer :) xo, Evelyn

In-Home Family Lifestyle Photography: Adi, Clara, Luke & Ryan

Adi and Clara have lived in various corners of the globe both as individuals and as a couple, most recently in New York City and Bangkok. Now back in the tri-state area, they have settled into a beautiful home directly across from Manhattan in Fort Lee, New Jersey. As parents to two beautiful boys - Luke and baby Ryan - this will be home for years to come, so Adi and Clara wanted to document this time in their family's life with an in-home family lifestyle session taken late this past summer.

Baby Ryan, with his big eyes and calm demeanor, compliments his big brother Luke, who loves to run around and eat snacks, often at the same time, just perfectly.

Speaking of snacks, Luke had me dying laughing with his approach to eating!

Rest assured that Luke is a sharer and ensures everyone has a taste!

Ryan's chubby legs are so cute you want to pinch them, which is exactly how Luke shows him brotherly love.

This family also loves to read together.

As the morning came to an end, Ryan was ready to be rocked to sleep for a nap...

...and Luke gave me one last giggle before I left.

Adi and Clara, thank you for welcoming me to into your home to document your gorgeous family. Luke is so much fun and Ryan is such cutie-pie. I can't wait to make my way back to New York City to see you all again. xo -Evelyn

Coronado Family Portraits: The Valles

Coronado Family Portraits: The Valles

Alejandro and Suzette Valle, parents to two smart young adults, recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary as well as had their daughter in town from New York City: this marriage milestone and full nest created the ideal time to have family photos taken near their home in Coronado, San Diego. We began our session in front of the iconic Hotel del Coronado and moved onto the beach as sunset approached.

I absolutely loved that they wanted to incorporate their 'third child' Bella into the family photos, because pets are absolutely family too!

Thank you Suzette for organizing this shoot for your beautiful family and cheers to another 25 years of marriage!

La Jolla Family Portraits: Jennifer, Nolan, & Daughters

Chill, fun, and amazingly sweet is how I would describe Jennifer, Nolan, and their beautiful daughters, all visiting San Diego for the first time on a summer getaway from Indiana! Windansea Beach in La Jolla made the ideal backdrop for their portraits where I loved bonding with the girls over our mutual adoration of ice cream, playing soccer, and also being one of two sisters. Even post shoot, I cannot get over the girls' adorable boots and dresses: can I please get one of each in size adult? :)

Balboa Park Family Portraits: Jessica, Jared, & Baby S

When I met up with Jessica, Jared, and seven month old Baby S in Balboa Park for their family portrait session, they immediately advised me that Baby S had a mean mug - a serious face to be reckoned with! - but you would never know given all of the smiles and giggles she gave me during our shoot!

Jessica and Jared, thank you for allowing me to document this very special time in your lives. Baby S is lucky to have you two who evidently love her dearly! -E

I mean, look at that precious face! Baby S, you're a doll!
