{ Krista + 3 }- A Family Session Sneak Peak: San Diego Family Photographer

had the opportunity to shoot a family with twin girls last weekend and I can't get over how cute these 2 are… 


I had actually taken some Christmas shots of just the girls at a Picture Party I held last December, so when mom contacted me for some family pictures, I could not resist!  Look at them just 5 months ago:


Look at them sitting up all by themselves looking sweet and adorable!  I loved being able to shoot the whole family this time!  Last weekend, when they arrived, both girls were asleep so I had a chance to shoot a few minutes with just mommy and daddy… what a gorgeous couple!


and one of my favorites of the day…


such an incredibly sweet picture!  I would have loved to shoot them for at least another hour, but alas… the girls woke up and the real party began:) Here are just a few shots I have had a chance to process:



more to follow soon… I was actually in a bit of a car acciednt yesterday on my way from a friends house to pick up Blake from gymnastics.  Totally got rear ended at a stop light, but luckily nobody was seriously injured and the car, although brand new, only had a couple of small dinks on the back end.  However, I did jam my finger and pull some muscles in my shoulder, so Im not quite 100% and have a littler brace on my left hand, makes it a bit annoying to type or be on the computer too long lol!  Hoping to be back to normal by next week!  Will post some more images then  :)  And I also have to post the lemon cupcakes!

Sweet stuff huh?  I think everything on here is completely noteworthy.  I could not regret doing any of these:)

And in regards to my last post about the wireless trigger, I had a comment/question about it… I bought mine here:

Calumet Photo

I bought this and the adapter for my Canon which was around $10!  For anyone who isn't familiar with what it is, you basically set up the camera like you would if using your built in timer, BUT its connected to a remote and when you are ready to fire, you just press the button and it fires instantly… you can even click half way to focus FIRST and then click all the way to shoot!  Hope that helps:)
