I met the Hernandez family for the first time at our session at the Hotel Del in Coronado. Elisa found me online and from the emails that we shared back and forth I could tell that I was going to love photographing this family. Elisa and her husband Toby are such an inspirational couple. They have known one another since they were 12 years old and even with the chaos of life, work, and family they still share a deep love for one another. When describing her husband in the family questionnaire Elisa gushed, “Toby is the rock of our family and the love of my life! He is a wonderful father to our 2 boys, a loving provider for our family; always putting us first and cherishes the importance of family. Ever since Toby has been in my life he has ALWAYS BEEN RESPONSIBLE, TRUSTWORTHY, LOYAL, MOTIVATED, HARD WORKING, CARING, AND ALL AROUND LOVING AND SUPPORTIVE. ” Jaime is the oldest son and the definition of a golden child. He is the quarterback of his football team, receives straight A’s, and he is the sweetest oldest brother. Throughout our whole session he was always up for anything and assisted me whenever it came to grabbing the attention of his younger brother. Isaiah is definitely the comedian of the family. He was always making us laugh and my camera just loved photographing his sweet face! He loves to be cuddled and he melted my heart when he asked to hold my hand mid session. Even though she is outnumbered 3 to 1 Elisa is proud to be surrounded by her three men. She said, “I’m just a wife and Mom to the best three boys anyone could hope for.” I’m so thankful for my job and for the new clients that are brought into my life. They teach me so much from our short time together and they always remind to me to take time and appreciate how great my own family is. The Hernandez family is going to have the cutest holiday card this year and I am so happy I was able to be a small part of it.
