When I first saw the beautiful Annette on the day of her photoshoot I could have cried. She was radiating so much elegance and beauty and looked like a Goddess! Then I saw how classy and stylish her sweet family was dressed, and was instantly so excited to take photos for them.
So we set out for a walk along the beach in one of my favorite locations for photoshoots in San Diego. If you've never been to Torrey Pines, you must visit someday and witness it for yourself! The wondrous orange cliffs overlooking the ocean make this location very unique. I knew it'd be the perfect backdrop for Annette's images.
It was a joy getting to know her family as we walked along the Pacific Ocean. But I have to admit, the walk to the location was a little further than I remembered. I felt aweful for making an 8-month-pregnant woman walk so far! But thankfully she was physically strong and had a great attitude.
The photoshoot went great and the time flew by as the sun began to set. On the long walk back I got a chance to get to know Annette more. I found out that her fiancé and her are super passionate about a charity he started called Hamilton's Heart Foundation. The foundation raises funds and accepts in-kind donations on behalf of economically disadvantaged children and children with disabilities. As a former NFL player himself, Lynell hopes to offer support to children who have grown up without the benefit of someone telling them, "You Can!"
The Hamilton’s Heart Foundation believes that every child deserves a chance and access to the tools they need to create a bright future. What an amazing cause to support! I love when I meet people who are focused on making our world and the community a better place, especially when it comes to our kids! Children have a special place in my heart even though I don't have my own (yet).
