Shooting natural light family portraits are my favorite! Even though photographing a family of six (including 4 children under 12), could be a challenge; these darling children were so well behaved and calm. Almost like a spell had been cast on them (haha!). Mom brought snacks and a bribe, and the results were definitely better 🙂
We started the family portraits right along Highway 1 north of Cayucos at a random pullout with a large ocean bluff field. Then we took more family photos around Moonstone Beach!
The weather was sunny and warm with a slight breeze. I absolutely love living on the Central Coast for days like these. Spending time and laughing with these sweet and beautiful children was all so delightful – it made me love my job even more.
Family portraits at the beach are so fun to shoot, especially when an adorable dog is apart of the fun! This family of three were on vacation from Southern California when they decided to hire me for an amazing photo session at Hearst State Beach (also known as “The Cove” to locals). These sort of shoots feel like hanging out with friends at the beach for an hour. Feel the sand between your toes, laugh as your dog runs around. Plus climb ocean front cliffs for a great photo op. After all this fun and quality family time, you get to keep 100 sweet Dog Family Portraits that will make you smile for years to come! I feel so blessed to capture these moments in time for such a beautiful family, and one adorable dog.
We drove around Santa Ynez and Solvang to find the perfect locations for Niki and Jeff’s couple photography session. There are so many locations in California that would be stunning backgrounds to any romantic or family photo shoot. Solvang and Santa Ynez are just two of many amazing locations to share your couples photography session. Niki and Jeff perfectly illustrate how beautiful these photo sessions can be. This fun filled couple is so gorgeous and in love; it radiates through their pictures. How do I keep getting so lucky sharing time with these lovely couples? I love my job!
