As a San Clemente Family Photographer, I often times get to meet some pretty amazing families. This family is no different! I met Nicole a little over a year ago just by happenstance. She is another photographer and we both decided to take a course at the same time. So... we were students together. My husband had just deployed and she stopped over to introduce herself in person with a card and my favorite candy (Haribo gummy bears). It was the sweetest gesture and a prelude to the type of friend Nicole would quickly become.
It didn't take long for us to start building our friendship and before I knew it, she was pregnant with miss E, and we were talking and going for walks on the regular. Getting to know Nicole and her family over the last year + has been a blessing for me. I cherish the times we've spent and the connection we have.
Recently, they found out that they'll be moving. This is typical with the Marine Corps, it's part of the job, but it doesn't make it any less sad. Before they leave, Nicole wanted to make sure they captured some family photos here in California before taking off on their new adventure. To say I was excited would be an understatement.
We went to Laguna Beach and just played in the sand. Mr. P, as per usual, was just off doing his own thing. Getting wet, sandy, digging and having a ball as boys tend to do. I'm so thankful I was able to capture these memories for Nicole and her family. I'm going to miss her terribly, but I know in my heart, we'll always be connected.
Love you Nicole!
I also love to make sure that I pull the parents away for a few moments during the family session. It's good to have a moment and some photos just of the two of you.
