December 1st | older posts





last weekend we had a family session with jasmine johnson. we had so much fun–can’t you tell? the boys were comfortable and happy and we explored morro bay while she snapped pics.  and i love, love the way they turned out.  she completely captured us!  and good news for locals!! she’s giving away one family session which includes a 60-90 minute session (on location) with online proof gallery and a $50 print credit.  so fun!! leave a comment and tell us where your favorite place is for family pictures.

    Awesome pictures of an awesome family! Thanks for sharing them!!!

  23. Lisa Miklas says:

    We will be in SLO for Christmas with our extended family. We have never done a shoot with all 4 cousins – what fun that would be! We love Avila barn, the Mission, the park by the high school – what an awesome contest.

  24. Karen Brown says:

    The pics are beautiful! LOVE the first one and the b/w!

    So…my question is…what do you use in your hair to make those curls so gorgeous? I had curls like that and then had three babies and now they have turned to fuzz. My hubby asked me the other day what I did with his curly-haired wife. (Never underestimate the power of hormones!)

  25. Beautiful pictures! She’s amazing and I’m always looking for a good photographer nearby. One of our favorite spots from visiting for the summers and now that we are in SLO permanently would have to be Montana de Oro. It’s just beautiful and I’d love to have some nice family pictures their someday. Thanks again!

    The beach of course! The sun, the sand, the breeze, the water……can’t beat that in California!

  27. Abby Spina says:

    I love the Morro Bay Shell Shop! Your pictures are beautiful!

  28. penny says:

    I actually love where you chose to have your shots taken! Beachy without the beach! :-)

  29. Your pictures are beautiful and totally capture your fun family! My husband and I grew up in CA but we moved away for a while and then moved back to SLO a year ago with our two little ones. We moved here from Colorado…so we have lots of family pictures in the mountains, but I would love love love to have some family pictures taken at the beach!
