Felicita Park Family Session – Escondido Photographer – The Crandall Family

It’s time for another Flashback Friday! I am loving looking back on my fall sessions and sharing them with all of you. Fall was a crazy busy season for family photo sessions and I didn’t get the chance to blog some of my favorite sessions. Now seemed like the perfect time!

It was a picture perfect evening at Felicita Park in Escondido with the Crandall family. The light, the location, the wardrobe, and the beautiful laughs shared between family was making me feel so lucky to get to be the photographer to capture this! Their little Ellie just loved to twirl in her cute dress. This family had such a sweet bond. You can truly see their laughter and love shining through in every photo.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session:

The Orr Family – Family Session at Felicita Park in Escondido, CA

Happy new year! I hope that you are all having a wonderful and blessed 2018 so far. 2017 ended with a bang for Loni Brooke Photography. It was my honor to capture so many of your family photos for your holiday cards. Now that things have started to get more back to routine, I am going to be blogging my favorites from all of your sessions. Forgive me as I play a little catch up.

The Orr family was so much fun to get to know. Their little Brady is so full of adventure. One of my favorite photos of the evening was the one of him running ahead of mom and dad (I just love how the trees are framing them and it almost looks like a heart). We all had a blast chasing him around and capturing him in his element. Megan and Josh are such a cute couple. I loved capturing their love in some moments of just them too. My favorite part of the whole session was finding out how much we had in common! Turns out, Josh and I are from the same home town back in Utah and went to private schools that played sports against each other. We are the same age and he played basketball when I was a cheerleader. Which means – I cheered at some of his games back in high school! What are the odds? I love how small the world can be! It was fate that I would end up being their family photographer here in San Diego! We started this session as strangers and left as friends.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session. I am definitely looking forward to seeing this adorable family again.

San Marcos Family Session – The Smiths

It was a perfect evening for a family session! The light was GORGEOUS, the temperature was great, the location was stunning – and the Smith family was so much fun (not to mention completely photogenic). Little Charlotte had us all in stitches with her adorable laugh and watching the bond between the boys was a sight to behold. My all time favorite sibling photo I have ever taken is the one (below) of Nathan and AJ having a brotherly love moment. Swoon! These kids are so close and have the type of relationship that I hope for my kids to have with each other. Kuddos to Susan and Austin, you have wonderful children and are seriously doing a great job with them. Can we just also mention how well dressed this family is? I love how they’re coordinated so well and the colors that they chose really make their photos pop (good job Mom!). It was my pleasure to get to know the Smith family. I am already looking forward to their next session and hope that it’s soon!

Autumn Family Session – North County San Diego Photographer – The Palacio Family

The Palacio family welcomed their adorable baby Autumn just a few short months ago. It seemed so fitting to have their first family photos taken in Autumn! We really wanted to get the autumn feeling with their session, and this beautiful San Marcos location was perfect. This family has such great style too! Moms, take note – this amazing dress Tiana is wearing photographs so well! I had a wonderful time getting to know this family. I hope to see them again soon.

Marian Bear Park Couples Session – Ryan and Alex

San Diego is known for the same consistently beautiful weather year round. How lucky are we? But, one thing we sacrifice for that is seasons. I have been missing the autumn colors of back home (I’m from Salt Lake City, Utah – where autumn colors are in abundance). I was having some withdrawals for seasons. As a photographer, I have been craving some color. Marian Bear Park changed my life! Just right outside of La Jolla is a wonderland of color. Add in perfect light and a BEAUTIFUL couple, and it was a photographer’s dream!

Alex and Ryan have been married for two years. Often, couples only take the time to get their photos taken together for their engagement and wedding. Then, their photos put on the back burner until they have children. But, I am telling you, don’t neglect to get photos together as a couple. Your love deserves to be celebrated every year! It was such a pleasure to photograph the eye candy of a couple that is Ryan and Alex. Their love really radiates through every photo.

Fall Family Photos in North County San Diego – The Gallups


San Diego Photographer-15

I always have a great time with the Gallup family! How could I not? I was lucky enough to do miss Kailei’s senior pictures a couple of months ago, and now the entire family joined in for their holiday photos. They are so fun and energetic, and they are so stylish too! They definitely win my top award for best dressed family session to date! They do so well with coordinating without being too matchy matchy. Every last detail in the styling is right on point, all the way down to their amazing shoes. I am so green with envy over those boots that their daughters are wearing! I always have so much fun with this family and feel more like I am just hanging out with friends during their sessions. I am looking forward to capturing their family photos again in the future.

Here’s a little peek at their session:

50 years together! That’s 600 months, 18,262 days and nights, 438,291 hours, which is twenty six million two hundred and ninety seven thousand four hundred and sixty minutes! What a wonderful milestone to celebrate! This amazing couple is celebrating their Golden Anniversary! I am so honored to have been able to celebrate with them and photograph them for this special occasion. Their love for each other really shines through their photographs and you can feel their emotion toward one another. The little details really added a personal touch to this session. They are wearing traditional Filipino attire and even coordinating in gold to commemorate it being their golden anniversary year.  Their daughter put together the most beautiful bouquet for her mother to hold and they even brought one of their wedding photos to pose with to capture two moments in time together.
