We chose this location, Ponto Beach in the springtime in hopes for wild flowers. I photographed Krystal and Andrews wedding at the Estancia Hotel in La Jolla over 8 years ago and have been shooting their family portraits every year since then.
Carlsbad has so many great locations for family photography but this place is one of my favorites. There is so much to choose from in a small area so you get a lot of variety in your photographs.
We started in the flower field and just let the kids be kids and let them explore and have a great time. This is a great time for me to capture those natural moments sneaking in posed portraits here and there.
After the field we headed over the beach and I set up some sand dune shots with the dramatic sky behind.
The kids love playing with the stones on the beach.
We finished off with some moody sunset silhouettes which make for great prints hanging on your walls!
