Family Photos in Encinitas

Seems like new places was a bit of a theme for me this weekend. I'd never been to Cottonwood Creek Park in Encinitas before, but my best friends--whom I've known since college--suggested it when they asked me to do their annual family photos, and it turned out to be quite nice. My favorite part of the afternoon was the impromptu game of hide-and-seek--I don't remember whose idea it was, but their daughter loved it, and it made for some extremely cute photos, including the first one below. I love for my sessions to be full of fun for kids and parents alike, because that's when the magic happens in the photos.
