I must first give Jennifer some kudos for organizing her family for this session. She didn't have the task of rounding up just a few folks-- she had 10 people to coordinate with! She did a great job getting everyone to arrive at Balboa Park by 8am on a Sunday. I'll admit I prepared for a less than smooth process. Turns out everyone was on time and in a great mood! How often does that happen? I can't even get my son and husband out of the door without a minor meltdown. Jennifer's family on the otherhand was efficient and so fun! I expected the fun part since I went to high school with Jennifer and had met her family several times (her dad's voice was like a sonic boom when he cheered on our volleyball team). I had such a great time chatting and catching up throughout the morning. This family is the definition of love and truly are the best of friends-- not just relatives. They really are an amazing group. I could go on about their awesomeness, but I don't want to embarrass them too much :)
Here are a few favorites from their session. I hope you enjoy!
p.s. please pardon my apparent obsession with shooting in "portrait" orientation :)
How cute are dad and mom? They've been married 28 years so I thought this was too perfect to pass up :)
"How you doin'?" They are adorable!
Baby Zita is the star of this family :)
Everyone loves Jo!
Newly engaged and so sweet.
And because every post needs a black and white image :)
