The Bonine and Bieber families gathered in San Diego over the holidays — reuniting sisters Vickie and Debbie, who lives in Chicago with her family.

Family gatherings are the perfect time to get a portrait!

We shot these photos at the beach during low tide, just before sunset. The weather was perfect that evening, and I love the clouds for these photos.

This family was full of love and there were lots of hugs and smiles throughout this photo shoot. I know it’s hard when your family lives so far away, but what better place to gather than southern California?
