Lincoln Tober's Lifestyle Newborn Shoot: Sarah Nail Photography San Diego, CA Newborn Photography

Nothing makes my day like seeing my clients again, especially when they have a new family member to introduce to the world! A few weeks back I got to meet the Tober’s newest family member, Lincoln, for his newborn shoot in San Diego, CA. You probably remember his handsome older brother Theo, both of these boys are going to be serious heart breakers! Lincoln’s newborn photos are not traditional, we did a lifestyle shoot to show how life goes with a newborn, older brother, and preparing for a cross country move! Lifestyle shoots are and excellent option if your looking for something unique to your family (they’re also cheaper than a traditional newborn shoot).

I’m so lucky to have met Clare, Mike, Theo and Lincoln; the navy life brings wonderful people into your world that you would have never met otherwise and I’m honored to capture some of their memories while they were stationed here. <3 Until we meet again! 

Ci vediamo più tardi Famiglia Eubanks! Sarah Nail Photography: San Diego Family Photographer

The wonderful Eubanks family is heading overseas to Italy this week! According to Google Translate the title of this blog means, 'See you later Eubanks Family!' in Itallian. This military family has traveled a LOT and have the coolest stories about where they've been and the people they've met. Their son has the adventure bug like his parents; this kiddo had ZERO fear of the ocean, his dad was knee deep in the El Nino waters of La Jolla Shores in San Diego, CA keeping him from going swimming. Those of you that know me, I love a kid that loves the ocean! I really enjoyed shooting this family portrait session and I hope

USS Roosevelt Homecoming with the Droughn Family! San Diego Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing the return of the new Chief Droughn! While out to sea he made Chief, which is a HUGE deal, and his family was given VIP access to his homecoming. For those of you who don't know how a navy ship homecoming works; the first people off are the big wigs of the boat (captain, etc.) then come the winners of the first kiss raffle (spouses at home enter a chance to have their sailor come off the boat in the first wave to get that first smooch) then come the new dads (where I always cry) and then the new chiefs! Being a VIP is so cool, there's food, chairs, local San Diego mascots from our attractions and you are literally next to the carrier! The Droughn kids were great sports by letting me take their photo the entire time, the helped their mom put the finishing touches on their sign and flew past the news reporters standing between them and their dad! I had to fight the reporters, camera man and photojournalists away to get there, hopefully the people that got my elbows to their ribs survived ok. ;) Overall, this was one of the most memorable homecomings and I'm honored to have photographed it! <3
