The Clampitt Family // San Clemente, CA

There is so much about this family that is so special. It’s taken me awhile to figure out how I can best describe them to someone just meeting them through these images in words that would compliment what the eye can already see. There was a great reason to celebrate them this week thanks to their anniversary of marriage and becoming a family 2 years ago yesterday (11/7), and I celebrate this family as delightful, brilliant, encouraging, brave, FAITHFUL, funny, kind-hearted, loving, sincere, steadfast, trustworthy, and wise. They are a testimony to enduring really really hard times and coming out stronger together as ONE, and I feel so thankful to call them my friends.

We had a great time exploring the hiking trails in San Clemente and then headed down the street to the beach and even got to see some seals bobbing their heads around in the ocean, so fun! Not a bad looking family and I LOVE the blue theme, especially the dark blue on Heidi. Gorgeous.


How cute are Heidi’s polka dot shoes?? I had a hard time containing myself over them.









We were really blessed when we got together for their session with amazing amazing light, and I really felt like God was painting this sky just for them to show His love and the promise of a new day. I don’t think I made that connection when we were playing around and shooting, but I can see it now and I am just in awe of how that worked out. Pretty amazing, in every sense of the word.



Zerlinda was up for being a great star of the show! She’s such a fun young lady who is already smarter than I ever was in my prime in college, sheesh. No need to worry about the next generation with her around! We’ll be in good hands.


A pretty perfect day.



Happy 2 Year’s!!


This is where its easy to see their funny qualities shine…


Heidi is such a great mom to Zerlinda, they love each other so much!


And she is for sure a Daddy’s Girl, I just love to watch them together… so sweet!




This one might be my favorite…



So much love for these guys! We went out to dinner at Avila’s El Ranchito downtown and were served our food in 5 minutes flat, so great, we would all recommend it! Thanks Clampitt Fam! I’m always a sucker for a good quote so I’ll close with one that you can download the full rez file for a desktop background if you like (but you’ll have to crop it how you need it, FYI) HERE:
