Grin & Share It Photography {San Diego Family Photographer}

Tessa of Grin & Share It Photography has been doing our family photos since before we had kids. The first photo shoot we did with her was actually a gift for my mom for Christmas. All 6 of us kids were in the same place at once and I knew I had to capture that on camera. I’m pretty sure the pictures brought my mom to tears. Tessa was just starting her photography career.

Tessa then took my maternity photos with my son, followed by newborn, 6 month and 12 year photos. The same were taken for my daughter – newborn, 6 month and now a family session that will take the place of her 1 year photos. And every time Tessa shoots our family I am amazed at what she comes up with. Her photos are absolutely stunning.

Now I’m not talking about our family and how we photograph. No, I’m talking about the lighting, the feel, the way the photos capture our true essence as a family. And that is why I will continue to go to Tessa for our family photos year after year. She knows how to get those shots that stop you and make you fall in love with your kids and your family all over again.

Not only is she a great photographer but she is also a professional. She also is a great resource for figuring out what to wear, where to do your photo shoot and has some great ideas for photo props, etc. If you have a vision I’m pretty darn certain that she can make it come true. From a sofa on the beach to a classroom in her backyard, she has the creative eye to make beautiful and artistic portraits to treasure forever. 

If you are in the San Diego County area and need a good family photographer I could not recommend Tessa enough! She simply is the best and I have the pictures to prove it! If you would like to see more please check out Grin & Share It Photography’s blog and facebook page. You’ll find great information on her mini sessions and other specials she has going on by becoming a fan. If you have any questions or want to book a session with her check out her website here.
