Katie and Sara celebrated their parent’s 45th Wedding Anniversary with family photos during their trip to Encinitas. What better gift to give than the gift of memories!

This family came in from Arizona to spend time together on the beach in San Diego. It’s always so fun watching families together because when you do photos on the beach, it always ends up with running and splashing and lots of fun shots of the families playing together.

I loved (LOVED!) how this family showed up for their family portraits. They captured the spirit of their family beautifully with these gorgeous dress and effortless style that went perfectly with the beach color palette.

And after Katie and her family departed for home, Sara’s husband’s family came the next week and she extended her family time in Encinitas – and as a special bonus, I got to photograph them too!! Double dose of goodness for all of us  🙂 You can check out those photos here.

Happy anniversary Bruce & Mary Jo!
