Child Photographer – Ally – Ashley McNamara – Bay Area – Photographer

This is the last of my sessions as a San Diego resident and I am feeling a big nostalgic. Before I left San Diego my good friend Marie came to visit me and made me promise by penalty of a smack down to take her to my favorite beach. Marie lives on the east coast and I am not biased or anything but the California beaches kick all other beaches butts.

Marie had criteria though she wasn’t just going to shoot any ole person, she wanted to do a kid’s shoot on the beach with a surfboard kind of Roxy style. I did some digging in old client files and found Ally, who doesn’t love a redhead? We had so much fun and Ally was a good sport because it was probably the coldest I have ever been in San Diego, it was ffffreezing!

Note: For those of you asking when i’ll be back in San Diego the answer is January. I’ll be keeping everyone informed via my newsletter. If you are not a member send me an email and I will add you to the list. You can also email me to book your spot now before someone else does! 🙂
