Family Reunion of 30 people in Morro Bay

Family Reunion of Three Generations in Morro Bay Photographer

An 80th birthday feels like a perfect reason to get the entire family together on vacation to Morro Bay. Great way to celebrate 29 family members coming together by enjoying the beautiful sand dunes and long stretch of beach on the Central Coast of California. Morro Rock makes a great background to their memorable family reunion photo session.

It was a perfect day on the sand dunes, with high clouds and soft, warm sand beneath our feet.  I always aim to get the 30 person group photo first, while energy is high and there are no tired toddlers. Then I photograph each individual family, groups of cousins, grandparents with grandchildren and many candid moments as well. These sessions will provide you with special memories for years to come.

The Central Coast of California has such interesting landscapes – The Rock being one of them!  It’s one of thirteen volcanic plugs/peaks leading south towards San Luis Obispo.  The area is full of amazing short hikes with panoramic views – the closest one is right in Morro Bay by the Golf Course called Black HIll.  It is only a 1 mile hike each way, but gives 360 degree views over the ocean, Morro Rock and the inland valley!  I recommend it for an aerial view of the coastline and a view over highway 101’s rolling hills.

{ Dog Family Portraits at the Beach } Family of Three + Adorable Dog

Dog Family Portraits_Family of Three_Debbie Markham Photography

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.

It was an honor to capture the love and happiness of Lauren and her extended family for their holiday reunion!  Lauren is also a photographer so it was fun getting to know her!  It’s interesting to meet other photographers and see their style compared to mine. I love coming across new ways to do my job! I also loved their colors – blues, burgundy and mustard. Such a cool color combination! Family photography is so much fun for me and amazing for the family who get to keep these images to look back on for years to come!
