The Jacksons {Oceanside Family Portraits}

We’ve been living too far away from these dear friends of ours for too many years! As divine destiny would have it, they moved from the San Francisco area down to San Diego County at the beginning of the summer — and we could not be more thrilled! There is so much history here. From hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park and kayaking at Deer Creek to BYU graduation for Michael and Marvin, we’ve made so many memories with this family and are so happy they have moved closer to us so we can make some more!

This session was part of a large family session we did for Cari’s family while they were on a family vacation in Oceanside. We love destination family portraits because we get to meet people from all over the world! Just before the The “June gloom” really did us in, we got some great shots of the kids.  Some of these photos turned out darling. And some of them just made me laugh out loud!

Jenn & her Kiddos {San Clemente Family Portraits}

Family Portraits by Orange County Photographer, Marvin Kimble —

Oh, this beautiful lady! She’s super woman. We’ve done their family portraits every year since we relocated to southern California in 2010 and they are always just too cute! We’ve hopped around southern Orange County from Laguna Beach to San Juan Capistrano. And we made it back to my latest favorite spot: The San Clemente Pier.

The marine layer started to roll into the beach in the evening, but there was still a hint of warm light breaking through the underside of the pier. There were some adorable shots of Jenn and the kids playing on the beach, and there was definitely A LOT of laughing going on! These kids are very familiar with having Marvin behind the camera by now and they are super easy to work with. There was not a single photo of these two not smiling! Talk about making a family photographer’s life easy!

Marvin recreated this shot from 2 years ago where the little mister was kissing his sister on the cheek. Too much sweetness!

Taylor & Savannah {Orange County Wedding}

This bride and groom were so fun to work with! We could literally have hung out with them forever when we met to discuss their big day the week before. After family and bridal party shots, Marvin took these two to Corona Del Mar for some gorgeous bridal couple portraits. I love the detail he got even shooting in the midday light. And those sweet moments of Taylor and Savannah walking across the rocks and stepping into the water are my favorite.

We wish these two eternal love and happiness!
