What August Looks Like | 2014

Dear Brooks,

The images I selected for this month’s post make me smile so much.  The memories behind each set is filled with lots of laughter, joy and pride!

This first set cracks me up!  You and Skyler sat down one day this summer and tried out Bean Boozled.  I laughed so hard at you two, I may have peed my pants, just a little.  The video we have to go along with this is even better than the still images.  Priceless laughter!

We had World Cup fever all summer and loved cheering on the USA with Sky and the rest of the family!

Beach days with the family!  There’s nothing better!  The big boys finally had some time to spend with you and Sky on your surfboard.  You both got up and couldn’t have been more thrilled!

Soccer.  Soccer.  And more soccer.  Such a huge part of our summer and I wouldn’t have it any other way!  This tournament was even more special because you got to play forward for the first time and scored a goal!  So thrilling!!  Plus after being a finalist in 5 out of 6 tournaments, your team finally one this tournament!

Awww.  The first day of 4th grade.  You’re not too thrilled with 4th grade so far.  We both adore your teacher, but unfortunately there are kiddos in your class that make it difficult for you (and others) to focus and enjoy the class.  Your sweet teacher has to work extra hard and I’m sure it’s taking a toll on her.  I’m praying that things get better and that there is a bigger lesson in this year for you (and me).

Yes!  That’s rain on the first day of school … in San Diego!!!  So strange!

I’ll wrap up this note with images from the Pacific Coast Championship Triathlon in Newport.  You totally rocked this race.  I tried and tried to get you to back out of the race, but you had your heart set on racing.  I really didn’t think you were prepared for the bike portion because you just haven’t had time to train.

The swim portion was canceled for the kiddos because the surf was HUGE!  The kids had a beach start and then took off up this steep, long hill!  You totally tore it up!

sandiegochildphotography0635 San Diego Family Photographer | What     Looks Like | September 2014

Then you surprised the heck out of me when you rounded the corner on the bike (after a 6 mile ride).  There were 5 kids ahead of you, but they all had lightweight, road race bikes.  You had to work twice as hard on your mountain bike, but you did it!

sandiegochildphotography0636 San Diego Family Photographer | What     Looks Like | September 2014

You wrapped up the mile run with a killer split and a strong finish!  Faster runner on the course!

sandiegochildphotography0637 San Diego Family Photographer | What     Looks Like | September 2014

Congratulations on your determination and perseverance!  You always make me proud!  I love to watch you compete!

Love you to the moon and back!

Mommy

Ginger Unzueta - I couldn’t love his freckles more!!! Jules, he’s such a cutie. Their relationship is too precious too. The bond. So great!! I love the way you capture his sporting activities. I really am inspired through yours. Always love your work.

Roxanne - The back to school photos are really, really beautiful, Jules. So clear and true – in both color and emotion. AND OH — I love those freckles. Such a lovely recap of your August. It’s one of the very best months <3

San Diego Lifestyle Photographer | What ___ Looks Like | August 2014

It’s been such a while since I shared this project.  I snuck a post into the June circle, but this is the first time in a YEAR that I have participated in my crazy, talented group!  My post isn’t full of beautiful light and gorgeous images … it’s full of what my life looks like now … a sporty little 9 year old.  So, here it is, What Catching Up Looks Like | August 2014. I’ll add a link down below, but here is a link to take you to What Backyard Camping Looks Like | Deanna McCasland.

Hey there Brooksie!

We really don’t take photos like we used to.  These days, I simply document a little bit of your sports activities … soccer, running, triathlons, swim meets, etc.  You’re not too into photos (except for my treasured Mother’s Day collection), so I try to honor that and sneak the photos in when I can.  So even though this set may not be ‘art’, it is a documentation of us right now.  We just spent the whole summer driving from practice to practice … every day … all summer long.  I wouldn’t have it any other way and I know that as soon as school starts on Wednesday, I’m going to miss our routine. I’m super excited for you to start 4th grade.  I’ve spent the last 6 months worrying about it, but now I’m finally ready …. you’re going to be a great 4th grader! We’re starting this off with your team and their awesome run at State Cup.  You all played so well!1E7C6934 Edit San Diego Lifestyle Photographer | What     Looks Like | August 20141E7C6959 San Diego

San Diego Family Photographer | The W Family at the Field

I’ve been photographing this gorgeous, fun family since I began my business 5 years ago!  We’ve done photo shoots at the beach, the park, a winery, and the field.  Out of all of these locations, I think the field was my favorite spot for their mini session.  I mean seriously … look at this gorgeous light!  And I love that they brought their new puppy to their session!  I’m already looking forward to our mini session next month.

I have one opening for this location for my mini sessions this fall.  Please let me know if you’d like to know more information!

San Diego Lifestyle Photographer | What the Mud Run Looks Like | June 2014

It’s been sooooo long since I’ve  posted to ‘What ___ Looks Like’, so I’m backtracking a bit to get myself caught up.

June 1, 2014 ~ Camp Pendleton Mud Run

Dear Sweet Brooks,

The last time I was at the Mud Run was the year before you were born.  I got together with a group of friends and we trained for a couple of months and had the best time.  After looking through photos of the Mud Run, you were super excited to do it!  All of the cool obstacles looked awesome to you and you couldn’t wait to do it.  The day was made even more special with a group of your friends joining us.

Even though I told you that it was ‘just for fun and the purpose was to run with your friends’, of course you ran this more like a race!  I don’t think you have a slower speed.  You loved it all so much, but you were quite disappointed that there were only two obstacles.  The mud pit was awesome, but you wanted more.  I thought it was hysterical that you wouldn’t clean the mud out of your ears because you proudly wanted to show it to your friends at school.

As always, I love watching you run and compete!  The joy you have for it just beams on your face.
