San Diego Family Photographer I McGrattan Family Session at Sail Bay – Pacific Beach

This family recently moved from Toronto to San Diego so that Brian could play hockey for the San Diego Gulls. I was so excited to hear from Michelle that she found me online and was attracted to my work because she loves light and airy photos.  And, then when she told me they wanted a sunset session with their two dogs and baby boy, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. I adore babies, dogs, and yummy light, so it was so exciting that my ideal client had found me!  🙂

They are enjoying the warm beach weather here in San Diego and they wanted their photo session to be on the sand just steps away from their apartment. It was so great to walk down to the beach at Sail Bay with them and their two adorable pups in tow. This was one of my last sessions of the year and I loved how easy and fun it was for us capturing these moments with them and their fur-babies, Henry and Louie. Baby Gabe was happy as could be and his Mom and Dad, Brian and Michelle, just loved loving on him. It’s easy to see why they are completely smitten with their little 7-month old baby boy.   I was smitten too photographing him through my lens!  He is an easygoing baby and all smiles, always. Lucky parents! Thank you, McGrattan Family for the privilege of documenting your memories at this most precious age for your baby boy. I look forward to our next session together soon!
