Coronado Golden Hour Family Photos / The Warrens

This session and this family were all sorts of dreamy. People always ask me what my favorite beach for pictures is and I think it has to be Coronado because it is huge and has pretty bright sand and dunes that add variety.

from my camera / weekend in the city

for andie's 17th birthday she had this pipe dream of going to chicago. she has watched the vow one too many times! we convinced her that san diego was just as cool of a city as chi-town, so she, audrey and my mom came and stayed with us for the weekend and we explored sd. of course the girls wanted it to be a photoshoot pretty much the whole time. we did practice senior photos for andie (she wants to do the real ones once she gets her braces off).

on saturday we shopped for hours...

then that evening we met up with the boys for dinner on coronado island. we had to take advantage of the best light of the day...

seriously, how gorgeous is she? she has won the best hair award in our family by far, sorry jarman!

then they wanted their best bud to be in the pictures with them...

he has learned a thing or two about modeling after being in a family with 4 girls.

i look like an oompa loompa next to my tiny, young, gorgeous, non-prego sisters.

we walked around the hotel del coronado for a bit before dinner...

and for some reason they decided to take a picture like this:

then we drove around down town at night because andie wanted to see the city all lit up...

sunday morning we took everyone to our favorite spot- sunset cliffs.

then we went over to seaport village (and left shortly after walking a bit and not being able to find parking!)

then we walked around down town some more...

and made one final stop at balboa park.

mom had to hop in show the girls how it's done.


it was such a fun weekend getting to know this city better. i don't think we will ever leave.

ps. let me know if you need, or know someone who needs, senior portraits done!
