Kessler Family

Back in December, I took some family photos for the Kessler Family. I love taking photos for extended families because there’s just something special about getting everyone all together.  When you’ve got families living in different cities and two away at different colleges, getting everyone in the same place at the same time, is no small feat. I’m so glad that we were able to make this happen.

We decided on Old Poway Park because honestly, it’s a location that’s hard to beat. There’s beautiful light in every direction and a variety of textures and backgrounds to choose from. It is a personal favorite and I love that no matter how many times, I go back there, I always find something new. We had a wonderful time and captured some great moments, but honestly, my favorite thing about these photos is the smiles on everyone’s faces. Happiness in every single picture. I love it!
