Winter Monday Mash-Up: Family Sessions, Fashion, Eid!

With med school I've been super busy to do blog posts! Check out Facebook for more frequent updates --> Facebook Here  

But, I have been ever so busy with photography! I have to show you guys some of my favorites from the many amazing shoots we've had. This is one of my favorite family sessions so far. We started off at Windansea beach (super high tide- couldn't really head down except for on the rocks) and got some fun shot  there, the kids just wanted to play on the rocks and watch the waves crash. 

Then we headed to the park at La Jolla Cove for some fun pictures in the grass and beneath the gorgeous trees. It was perfect weather. 

Next, check out this fashion shoot with lovely Amal and designer Nilab. It was great to go back to Geisel to shoot, since I probably hadn't shot there since graduation season in 2015. 

Check out this family session at the beautiful Leo Carrillo State Park up in Carlsbad! A great family outing place, the kids loved to play and discover different things in the park. A super fun family session as well!

We end winter with nowruuz (new day!) Persian New Year! 

Happy Spring everyone! 

Rachel & Ahmad Family Portraits | La Jolla Shores, CA

You are going to love this family session in La Jolla, San Diego! I had the privilege of doing Rachel's maternity photos, and now little Ali is almost 1 year old! Unbelievable how time flies. Check out some of my favorite photos here:

Isn't he the cutest little thing? And you can see loads of love from his parents, mashallah. May he always be healthy and may God protect this beautiful family! Thank you for viewing and like/share my photography page if you enjoyed it!

 

Sandhu Family Portraits | La Jolla Shores, CA

You may remember the first grad portrait of the season- Manu! (See her session here: http://www.yasphotos.com/blog/2015/5/26/manu) Well I got the chance to photograph her whole family the day after graduation. They're from central CA so they don't really have a beach there....how nice to go to graduation and a vacation to sunny SD at the same time!

Warning: there is a lot of gorgeousness and pretty smiles coming up. Manu and her sister Harpreet, and their cousin really lit up the pier!

And of course, add their mother Sonia, who is like another sister. Seriously can you tell?!

Proud parents of two amazing women...

And just when you thought that was the whole family, let me introduce you to the two brothers! 

And the four of them together!

And now- the whole crew. I really loved how the Sandhu family respects and cherishes their grandmother, who helped a lot in raising them and taking care of them. We were fortunate to bring her to the beach and get these family portraits under the pier. Also, is it just me or did they purposefully match orange and blue (complementary colors!!!). It works perfectly!

Well, this worked out nicely...

So many beautiful faces and photos coming up...I have so many I wish to share!

And to leave you with a bang...or a JUMP!
