Hatch Family | San Diego Family Photography

April 22, 2012  •  1 Comment

I have lots of love for the Hatch family. I've known this clan for years. In fact, way back when, before his beautiful wife and two adorable girls, I went to senior prom with Mr. Hatch...wish I had THAT photo to post- haha! Yes, we have been friends since high school and have seen each other's families grow, always making sure to get together for a quick hello whenever they are in town. Their most recent trip to San Diego was rather last minute, but they wanted to do a photo session nonetheless, so we threw one together in just a few days. They wanted something urban (which I love!) and I wanted to try out a new location that I had in mind.  Because we were short on time to plan, I didn't get a chance to scout out my location in person at the exact time that the photo session would take place (something that I ALWAYS do to make sure that the lighting will be right). I crossed my fingers and counted on my basic understanding of where the sun would set to get me through.

Now let me tell you what I did NOT count on- the dozens of homeless men camped out at our location site!  I know that the East Village can be a little sketchy in areas, but I wasn't expecting this. We worked around the corner at first, staying out of their way, and then ventured down the block a bit. As we moved closer to a group of homeless men in order to get our shot, we had a surprising moment. A great, surprising moment. Just as I was  feeling at my most guarded, anxious, and judgmental about the whole situation, the homeless men turned to help us out. That's right- out of the blue a couple of them started making faces to get the little girls to laugh and smile for the camera. Wow, that was a first! And then they just watched, rather adoringly, as the Hatch family huddled together for the shots. It was actually really sweet. And a really good lesson to me in suspending judgement.

Enjoy the peek of the Hatch's session. :)

These came out great!!! Love the one with the girls on the backs of their parents; what a colorful backdrop. And, I LOVE the black and white of the family sitting together. So sweet. Such a cute family, lovingly captured through the eyes of a wonderful photographer.
