Balboa Park is the best! I truly don’t think that you can go wrong there as a photographer. Seriously spoiled for choice. It also helps when you’re taking pictures of a family as awesome as this one. Little Emily is three and this is the third year I’ve taken her pictures. I swear it is more fun every year. We wandered the park since that is what these guys love to do together. We pretty much let Emily run the show…literally. We just followed her around and let her do her thing. Okay, it might not have been her idea to climb the tree roots, but it was her idea to run laps on the stage at the organ pavilion, climb in the wishing well, play drums, get her groove on, and make some of the wackiest faces I’ve ever seen. I wish I could remember what it was like to be three when you truly didn’t care what the world thought. The freedom.

Hey you three, I hope you love these and I can’t wait to show you the rest. It was a treat to spend the evening with you! Hugs!
