I have worked with the Keller Family since I was only in business for a year. I was so new and was still figuring out myself as a photographer. Jenna reached out to me to take photos of their absolutely GORGEOUS family in 2016. Her husband, Jake, was about to leave on a deployment for 6+ months, and they wanted me to capture these memories before he left. I was ecstatic to work with them and we got some great photos of them and little Braxton when he was too tiny!
Shortly after he left on deployment Jenna had reached out to me to capture their homecoming photos! Even more excited than last time, I made sure I would be there! Their homecoming was one of my favorites to date. I loved every moment of being able to capture them reunite and become a family again!
Once he was back and settled in, we headed out to the local barn and took family photos once again. Braxton had grown soooo much since Jake had left that updated photos were more than necessary!!!
A few months later Braxton turned 2! He is the cutest and SMARTEST 2 year old I have met! We went to a big field with lots of trees and chased Braxton around and got some great shots of him just being a kid, playing in the dirt, and giving us that million dollar smile!
Jenna messaged me again saying that they were leaving California to head back to Florida. I was so sad but excited to work with them again. This time I decided to switch things up. I was always taking photos of them posed and looking perfect, but this time I wanted to capture them really interacting and being themselves. I have implemented this into all of my sessions and the end results are timeless.
This location was a beach in San Clemente. This location also offers cliffs, trails, and lots of gorgeous backdrops!
