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. ;)
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!
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!
Yesterday I photographed the USS Rushmore bringing home Lt. Kelly back to San Diego, CA just in time for Christmas! The Kelly's are friends with the Saade's and Lt. Saade came home too. These two men made their families holiday complete! Enjoy this double homecoming!
I got to go on an adventure to Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve with Landa, Gary and their kiddo Carlos for their family portraits!
I had the pleasure of photographing the Rohde's for their Christmas card this year. I also got to meet their furry kid, Wilber, and if you know me you know I LOVE dogs and above all corgis! Wilber is much better than my two pups and was the perfect pup model. Love this family!
The Clarks are getting into the holiday spirt! Their family portraits were taken in Pacific Beach in San Diego, CA. Enjoy!
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!
