One beautiful thing about springtime is that gives me a little bit of a breather after a very busy fall and winter season. During this breather, I get a chance to go back and revisit some of the family photos that I took during the holidays. I love getting a chance now to spend some time posting images from these beautiful sessions. This sweet family had me capture some photos over the holidays when they were all together in San Diego. They wanted to remember this fleeting time while their little one was still little. They were all so much fun to photograph and it was such a pleasure to watch this darling boy interact with his parents, grandparents and aunties 🙂

The Mom & Me sessions we held at So Childish this year are truly  some of my most favorite photos. These photos were extra special because they were such a rare occasion for these sweet mamas. Over and over again, I heard them say that they never get photos with their little ones. So many of them lamented that they were always the ones taking the pictures, but were never in them. Some of them said they felt like they didn’t exist when they looked back at their camera rolls. I was so glad that we could change that! These images capture the joy between these mothers, grandmothers and their babies. I hope they bring lots of smiles and happy memories for years to come!

An In Focus Camera Class would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your favorite mom or grandma. These photography classes are designed with the parent in mind. They will give you a solid understanding of how your DSLR camera works and will walk you through the features and settings you’ll need most to create beautiful family memories. You’ll learn photography concepts along with some tips and tricks and how to directly apply them to your camera.

There are two classes available and each class is $99. Start with Level 1 and learn the basics. After practicing your skills, come back for Level 2 to build on what you’ve learned. Because classes are small (6-8 participants), you’ll get one-on-one help with your camera and leave feeling ready to capture those everyday family moments that you want to remember forever.
