DEL MAR DOG BEACH
FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

FREE "WHAT TO WEAR" GUIDE

THANK YOU

North Beach in Del Mar, often affectionately referred to as Dog Beach, holds the distinction of being the sole area where dogs can enjoy off-leash freedom on Del Mar city beaches. Stretching from 29th Street north to Solana Beach, dogs can frolic without constraints, though during the summer months, leashes are required. The primary section of this beach is situated on the north side of the San Dieguito River Lagoon entrance, adjacent to Camino Del Mar. Along the beach has some breath taking cliffs and rock formations for great backdrops for lovely family photos.

Welcome

Being a Del Mar family photographer, I absolutely adore shooting at Del Mar Dog Beach, also known as North Beach. The coastal cliffs and rocks below provide a stunning backdrop, adding a beautiful dimension and depth to every photo. Alongside the cliffs and rocks, the sandy shores and ocean contribute to the scenic beauty of the coastline in every direction. I've captured numerous family portraits, maternity sessions, and engagement photos at Del Mar North Beach, and the reactions are always filled with awe when clients see their breathtaking images.

WORDS FROM YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND HIS APPROACH

Photo-of-Cary-Pennington-Carlsbad-Family-photographer

Your family is your most precious possession. They are the ones who make you laugh, cry, and grow. And they deserve to be captured in beautiful photos that you can cherish for a lifetime. That's where I come in. I'm a family photographer who specializes in capturing the love and laughter of your family. I believe that family photos should be more than just a collection of snapshots. They should be a story about your family's journey together.

 

I'll work with you to create a personalized photo shoot that reflects your family's unique personality. We'll choose the perfect location, the perfect outfits, and the perfect poses. And I'll use my years of experience to capture the genuine moments that make your family special.

During any family session, my goal is to bring out the real beauty and love of your family, your family dynamic with all the personalities mixed into “One” family. My approach is simple with guidance as I seen where its needed, but mostly I love to let you be “you”. Don’t be surprised if after the photo shoot you actually feel this sense of connection with your family more then you have in the past

Family time is so important as a child, I remember the times my family and I simply went on walks at the local beaches or visit the old military forts along the coast in San Francisco.
