kickin the can in coronado


i was wrong.
huh, i guess i can say it. :)
for years now i've been walking around thinking my family had the coolest names on the planet.
along comes sylvia's family and... boom goes the dynamite :)
sylvia and her husband david brought their two awesome boys, diego and joaquin, out for a full tilt fun family portrait session on coronado island.
it was a good thing we brought our smiles. we were gonna need 'em.




this is the only known photograph of david, sylvia, diego, and joaquin's fun being contained. shortly after this photo was taken the cage turned to butterflies and their fun was unleashed on coronado.




how far we goin back? way back.
back to when there was no such thing as a playstation 3, xbox 360, wii, psp, gameboy, sega, atari, or pong.
back to when all kids had for fun was an empty alley and a game of kick the can.
diego and joaquin are bringin it back.



















mmmm, burger lounge.













one way... the fun way :)






















here we have two families. let's call them family A and family B.
today's experiment is to see which family is more fun.
family A, on the left, wasn't much fun at all. they had to be vapoorized.
family B is SUPER FUN! yay family B!
thank you david, sylvia, diego, and joaquin for making us smile every time we look at you :)

Ashley said...

You guys make alley ways and rubbish cans look great for a family to hang out at. Just want you to know that you guys are the reason why I've started thinking out of the box for my clients. Of course a lot still want beaches but there are times when they're open to anything. Just did a shoot with splashing water on some kids and it was inspired by you guys. I'll be blogging it and talking about you when I blog it. You guys are rock stars!!
