The cutest little bug there ever was. This little girl is precious to be around.
A tip for taking photos of the little ones is to get down to their level, speak quietly, as though you are telling them a secret and they will listen intently. Plus it is such a fun time having a moment with a kiddo where it is only the two of you, even if it only lasts for the length of your shutter clicking. Capturing that little space in time is priceless.
It is such a cool experience to have siblings of different ages work together to make a photo unique to them. I just pointed out how cool these cut down logs were and the kids each found their own platform to stand on, a version of their own Olympic medal ceremony!!
Make it super easy on yourself and find varying ground levels to stagger the little birdies....or let them be your guide, generally kids are curious and will find some cool spots you may overlook. It makes the photo session so much fun when its an adventure and not a mandatory "to-do" for the family.
Isn't this tree amazing!! It is at Mast Park in Santee, San Diego. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful backdrop for this family of 5 to weave themselves into. So organic and interesting to look at!
These kiddos were amazing at mimicking. I got low to take a photo from floor perspective and each move I made to get closer to the ground, they copied exactly. It was hilarious and made for an adorable family shot!

Heritage Park in Old Town San Diego is a fun local spot for a walking photo shoot. It makes it easy for kiddos that don't like to sit still with lots of different backdrops to choose from a wide open field to historical homes and picket fences.
A glance at the wide open meadow placed right in the center of Historical Old Town San Diego. It's a great spot for morning light with greenery surrounding dropped right in the middle of the city.
