Junah (3) and Suri (1) at the beach / by Julie Cruz

If you're a photographer, you know that majority of the people booking shoots is women. Usually the mom/wife/daughter/aunt/grandmother/etc is the one contacting you/setting up the shoot. Every once in a while though, you'll get an awesome guy like this one, who purchased a gift certificate to surprise his beautiful wife for Mothers Day! Yep, someone get this guy a "Best Husband Ever!" award, because he gets MAJOR points in my book! This super sweet family moved to San Diego not too long ago, and wanted to shoot at the beach. A little tricky with two little ones (who decided that making mud pies and throwing wet sand was much more fun ;) haha), but they definitely had a good time, and the weather was gorgeous and perfect (in fact a little too perfect...which caused for crowds near other areas I had hoped to shoot at...but what can you do?). Junah (age 3) with his adorable little dimple was very sweet and talkative. He probably could have sat and chit chatted with me all day. From telling me about his dear lost octopus (Wacky Wall Walker), making mud pies at school, and wanting thai food for dinner, he was too cute. Suri (age 1)...ohhh, sis... such a cutie...and quite a mess within minutes of being there! Haha :) She had the best time just running around and digging in the sand. ***CLIENTS*** - On another note, my *crazy* season has officially started, so I won't be able to post as many images with sneak peeks (that way I can get sneak peeks up quicker, work on editing, etc). I have so many shoots this time of year that it's hard to keep up with everything (on top of my daughter's schedule as well.... not to mention holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year) and over 10 (!!) family birthday just from Halloween until Christmas). In previous years, there were times I was so busy that I decided not to blog at all, I just posted a few teasers on Facebook, but later on I regretted doing that, so I'm hoping to at least post a few from every session. Bear with me. It will be another crazy (yet fun) season :)

Sorry to ramble.... back to the beautiful "K" family :) ...
