Huerta Family in Balboa Park! Sarah Nail Photography San Diego Family Photography

A few weeks ago I got to see the Huetra's again! They are still awesome, they pup is still the best and they couldn't be more in love! This year we went to Balboa Park in San Diego, CA for their family portraits and Desi didn't complain once about me dragging her all over the park in some killer shoes. ;) Here's some of my favorites from their session! 

The Hartings in Ocean Beach! Sarah Nail Photography: San Diego Family Photography

Probably one of the best parts of being of portrait sessions is getting to know my clients! The Harting family visited Ocean Beach in San Diego, CA and decided what a better way to enjoy their visit by getting their portraits done. Its also a great way to check off Holiday Card photos off the list too! ;) They were so open to all my crazy ideas (except the youngest lady, she want’ super excited about the cold water). When she saw the surfers waiting for their next set she said, “Duckies!” Needless to say I died laughing! 

Pacific Beach Family Session: Sarah Nail Photography San Diego Photographer

The Kelly Family joined me in Pacific Beach a couple of weeks ago for their San Diego, CA family session before they leave California for the East coast! Such a great family and I'm sad to see them leave our area, but thrilled I got to photograph them one last time! 

Mia is 6 Months Old! Sarah Nail Photography: San Diego Family Photography

I LOVE when I get to meet kiddos after I photography their 'before' shots during a maternity shoot. I photographed the Cotnor family last summer for their maternity shoot and recently we returned to Torrey Pines State Beach in San Diego, CA to capture, their daughter, Mia's 6 month photos. The beach has had some changes due to El Nino and there were tons of rocks washed ashore, which made for a totally different vibe than our first visit there. I love this family and their daughter is such a trooper putting up with me. ;) 

Look who's expecting! Sarah Nail Photography: San Diego Family and Maternity Photographer

The Scott family is growing by two feet this year! This duel military couple is currently stationed in San Diego, CA. Sadly they won't be here for much longer, but I really enjoyed meeting them and capturing this exciting time for them! 

Sarah Nail Photography Best of 2015: San Diego Photographer

What a wonderful year it has been! Its the first year Sarah Nail Photography is full time in San Diego, CA. My husband/ business partner/ CFO/ stand in assistant has continued to support our new business venture and push me in the right direction. Without Zac I wouldn't have had the courage to start shooting full time and push for the dream of being my own boss. 

Anthony the assistant/ intern/ human light stand is a stellar person and I'm so thankful he's agreed to help my scattered brain and be a huge help with clients. He's always calm, makes kids laugh, and can carry anything on a skateboard, while skating. (Which I'm secretly jealous of.) I can't wait to teach him more camera things! 

Here's some of my favorite shots from this year, some Grand Cayman, favorite portraits and a few just for fun. I can't wait for the up coming adventures for 2016, such as a trip to Cuba and Mammoth, this year should be just as exciting! 

Thank you to all our clients for letting us be part of these special moments in your life! 

Terra Underwater! Underwater San Diego Maternity Photography

I got to meet the Brown's for their underwater maternity portrait session in San Diego, CAlast month! It might be obvious, but I love everything underwater. They do not want to know the gender of the baby until they arrive. This couple is amazing, they have such great chemistry and such a wonderful 'how they met' story. Its shoots like this that remind me why I love what I do and what an honor it is to capture these moments in peoples lives!
