Tiana and her boys in beautiful Carlsbad
When Tiana and I first started out planning these family photos, she was mom to two adorable twin boys. By the time these photos happened, she was mom to three boys, and no I am not counting her husband :)
In between my pregnancy, her pregnancy, moving from California toTexas, Covid, let's say it took a lot of juggling and a lot of patience to make these photos happen, but we made it happen and the views at this Carlsbad Beach were so worth the wait.
Of course in true toddler fashion, the kiddos weren't exactly jumping for joy at the thought of sitting down for photos ... so guess what? We didn't do a lot of sitting. We mainly had fun, running around, splashing in the water, playing with the sand etc .... and even though looking at the camera wasn't their favorite activity, they were so sweet to me and it was a blast watching them have so much fun.
In conclusion, as I said before, if you are a go with the flow kind of person and want your family photographed in the most natural way possible, pick a location that your kiddos can have fun in, have extra snacks, and go with the flow. Also I'm your girl, I love candid with a lil mix of posing.
And yes I will always trying get some photos with no kiddos, but sometimes the kiddos are faster than my shutter:)
