I had the honor of photographing Jim and Sue Phelps family portraits at the very beautiful Encintas Moonlight Beach. Their daughter Emily contacted me in regards to getting an entire family portrait done as they hadn't been able to do so in many years. There would be Jim, Sue, their daughter Emily and her family, their daughter Megan and her family as well as their son Doug to photograph.
With a family of 13 people, I knew this was going to be fun. We ran around the beach, kicking a ball, dodging the waves and trying desperately to get little Aiden and Carter to smile at the same time for us.
I loved photograph Emily, her husband Chris, their 3 year old son Mason, and their 1 year old twin boys Aiden and Carter loved the ocean. Running around gathering rocks and kick their red ball were the highlight of their afternoon photo session.
Thankful for Doug, Jim and Sue's son for helping me coral the young boys several times during their session. I was even able to get the boys to all sit down and do a photo with their Uncle Doug.
I was overjoyed to see that Megan, her husband Scott, their sons Cameron and Brett and daughter Emilee had brought a Christmas sign that read "JOY". It was really big and bright RED .... as you all know, I LOVE LOVE LOVE props. It makes a session so much fun and when clients bring their own, it adds a fun personal touch.
