Sweet little Ana came all the way to Carlsbad from Michigan. Not only to have beach photographs taken, but for a trip of a lifetime! About a year ago Ana was hit by a car and life-flighted to the nearest hospital. Ana suffered from traumatic brain injury among other complications. All things considered, Ana made a full recovery. Her family came to Carlsbad to celebrate Ana and her accomplishments. The love felt for sweet little Ana during her shoot was something I will never forget. The moments were so tender and you could tell mom was soaking in every moment. Truly grateful for her daughter’s recovery and a second chance, it was gentle reminder how fragile life really is. Here is a family who will never take anything for granted again.
The Hill family was on the most ambitious week of California sightseeing that you can imagine- Los Angeles, Carlsbad, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and San Francisco. I was tired just hearing about their itinerary. To top it off, mom started nursing school the very next day she returned from vacation. Thank you so much for visiting Carlsbad and I hope your family loves the beach photography. I loved meeting your wonderful little family!
