San Diego Family Lifestyle Photographer | Golden Hour Mission Trails Family Session in a field

Fun, playful & rustic images in beautiful warm light

I’m excited to share this fun San Diego family lifestyle photography session from last Fall at Mission Trails, one of my favorite spots.  I was so excited when they showed up with the cutest little boy and girl.  The baby girl was so sweet and the suspenders on the little boy were adorable.  I love the neutral tones that this family wore for their session, this way the emphasis is on how beautiful this family is.  I loved photographing them by highlighting their fun, playful mood and their connection.

Even though it was quite warm that day, these kiddos handled the heat really well.  And, we were blessed with the most gorgeous light as the sun started to set behind the mountain.  I am always in awe of how beautiful the light gets during the golden hour and I work quickly during those few moments to get as many images as I can.  It had been awhile since I had been able to bring out my wooden “wine box” to put a baby in it.  Luckily, she was all too happy to be in the wine box for a few portraits, as you can see.   Even though we don’t get much of a Fall here in San Diego, we can still find the gorgeous warm, rustic tones and golden light to evoke the feeling of Fall at Mission Trails.  This is why this is one of my most favorite locations for sessions.
