Carlsbad Family Portraits | The Sandoval Family

Family photos at the beach are so special. Not everyone has the privilege of growing up near the beach, but for those who do, it’s really such a magical place to spend family time. For exactly that reason, Sarah Ellen and Juan Carlos wanted to have photos of their little family together in a place they love– Carlsbad State Beach in Southern California. We felt the sand in our toes, chased waves, we played and laughed, and watched the sun go down over the Pacific Ocean. These moments with those we love pass by so fast, so it’s especially sweet to have these memories documented forever. Here are some favorites from their family session…Carlsbad Beach California Sunset. family photos at the beach, parents and baby father and son at the beach mother and son at the beach family with small child at the beach Carlsbad beach family portraits Carlsbad beach family portraits Carlsbad beach family portraits baby boy holding parent's hand beautiful sunset at Carlsbad beach in California sunset colors reflected in ocean family portraits at sunset in San Diego

LET'S work

This life is thrilling and grand and moments of greatness are threaded through loss, grief, and uncertainty. So for tonight, let's dance and celebrate the love we have here. Now. What a gift. The ultimate luxury.

Whether your love is the strong silent kind that shows itself in knowing eyes and tender embraces, or if your love is the loud laughter and infectious kind that can barely contain the joy and excitement you feel... I want to be there. With my camera. Taking snapshots so that time will forever be frozen still.
