The Lancaster’s extended family sunset session in Oceanside, CA was an absolute blast! This amazing, fun family of 10 from Utah were visiting the California coast for their summer vacation. The sun-kissed shores near the Oceanside Pier provided the perfect backdrop for their family session. They even braved the ocean waves, allowing me to capture candid images of them kicking up water.
The matriarch and patriarch of the Lancaster family gathered at the beach with their three grown children, their respective spouses, and two adorable grand-babies. With two grandchildren in tow, aged just five months and two months, the Lancaster’s growing family was a beautiful reminder of why extended family sessions are so important. Little ones add an extra layer of joy to the images, showcasing the beautiful cycle of family growth and love. I also love watching children’s reaction to the water and the sand between their toes!
Extended Family Sunset Session in Oceanside, CA
Extended family sessions not only allow everyone to gather together, but they also provide an opportunity to capture individual family moments and allow grandparents to get in photos with their grandchildren, as well as aunts and uncles with their nieces and nephews. As families grow over the years, moments like this become even more important, as the images become treasured family memories and heirlooms.
I enjoyed my time with the Lancaster family so much! I know the images from their Oceanside session are more than just photos; they are memories of a family vacation and a new season of life that has expanded their family and their love. As the family strolled along the sandy shores, they shared laughter and smiles, basking in the golden hues of the setting sun.
The smiles and precious family moments captured of growing families like the Lancasters make my mama heart overflow with happiness. Preserving family vacation memories is a passion of mine! I’m always thrilled to deliver fun galleries like this to my trusting families.
