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.
