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!

Jessica | Class of 2015, UCSD

Have you ever met someone and right away knew that they were a bright and shining star? That's how I felt when Jessica walked up to me at the rooftop of Geisel. I was just like, wow, beautiful smile and personality shining through!! 

Jessica is heading off to teach for a year. I think that's awesome- teaching is so hard and takes a super amount of energy! But she came to the session straight from teaching, and went off afterwards to study.

Good luck and congratulations! I am so happy you chose Yas Photography :)

Catherine & AJ | Balboa Park, San Diego

Catherine & AJ met on the swim team at UCSD. I really enjoyed walking with them through gorgeous Balboa Park. There are so many beautiful places here for photos. You could probably stay in one spot for an hour shooting different variations! But we went through a few nice spots and I love the results. 

Kristen & Sam | Windansea Beach, La Jolla

A few weeks before finals, we got to spend some time early morning at Windansea Beach in La Jolla, CA. I had never been, but I am so glad I got to see this hidden gem! It's a great place for photos, since it has lots of nice rocks, a little hut, and a wall of gorgeous flowers.
