San Diego Mommy and Me Portrait Session in the Fall Setting of Rancho Penasquitos Canyon – Rachel Manning PhotographyRancho Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Family Photography Session in San Diego

I loved photographing this sweet mommy and me session in Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, San Diego.  We lucked out with the most beautiful golden light filtering through the trees during our portrait session.  This is the kind of light that makes my heart sing!  Mommy and me sessions are my favorite kinds of sessions to capture because the bond between a mother and her children is unbreakable.  The connection a child shares with his/her mother is the strongest of all.  I love documenting this connection and telling these stories for fellow Moms.  And lastly, I adore showing Mothers how beautiful they truly are, inside and out.

Also, can we talk about how adorable this little girl is with her cute little sweater dress and brown boots?  I died when she showed up looking too cute for words.  I remember having to do a lot of  running around to photograph her.  She just wanted to explore, but when she stopped to look at a leaf, I had to work quickly to capture that moment.  It is always a joy to photograph children, even when they do not want to cooperate.  Too often, I hear from potential clients that they are unsure about scheduling a session because their kids may not cooperate.   By working with me you can be sure you will end up with many images you never dreamed of having of your children.  Why?  Because I see this as a challenge that I thrive upon.  Crazy kids who won’t cooperate for the camera are my specialty.  Truly!  So, what are you waiting for?  Get in touch today to schedule that session.  Time is fleeting and kids grow much too fast.  Let’s freeze time together!

Be sure to check out the gorgeous canvas wall grouping that this Mom ordered for her home, at the end of this blog post.  It turned out beautifully!
