Adorable sisters skip hand in hand during their family portraits in San Diego at Liberty Station

World-class skipping champions! We recently had the pleasure of getting together with Erin and her fam-bam for fun family portraits of her parents, their adult children, and their precious granddaughters. We’ve know Erin for years of working together in the wedding industry as she’s an amazing coordinator on Courtney’s team at After the Engagement. After our last round of super-fun headshots with the crew, we started chatting about doing this session and we were so happy everything finally came together for it as half of the family lives out town. We had a great time with everyone!

Always fun when we work together during these sessions for a little different angle and perspective. Seriously, Erin’s and Doug’s little girls are adorbs and the whole family is pretty entertained and enamored with them! candid angle of family smiling at each other during their family photos at Liberty Station, photo by La Vida Creations

Terry and Gloria have a lot of fun with their family and definitely share some really special relationships. portrait of grandparents sharing a kiss and a hug with their grandchildrenPortrait of parents with adult daughter, smiling at dad

There *may* have been some running jokes about awkward family photos during the session. We just about fell about laughing when they told us they were prepping for their session by reviewing the latest collection. Hilarious! Portrait of smiling parents and adult children at liberty stationCouple portrait looking at each other and smiling

Don’t you just want to hug these guys? We had a great time with everyone! Especially love this right photo of Terry looking out at the grounds of Liberty Station. It ended up being a great spot for them as he served and lived in the barracks here several decades ago. Perfect addition to telling more of their story of life in San Diego! Relaxed older parent portraits at liberty station

Sometimes I discover little tiny things like this when I’m editing images. See the crinkle in Grandpa’s nose when he’s giggling? Notice Lexie’s lil’ scrunchy face? OH. MY. GOODNESS. That’s soooooooo great! scrunchy face runs in the family as daughter and grandfather both share it
