little beach vacation | family photographer los angeles

Did you know they do not have piers in Australia?! I had no idea! It was the perfect setting to document this families vacation to sunny Southern California!! They got the full experience on a Sunday at Noon during the summer!! Packed, but beautiful and fun nonetheless! Here are a few of my favorites from our time together! I adore the way film handles midday sun.

party until the sun goes down | family photographer orange county

Warning! Overshare! OH how I adore this session!!! And while I trying my hardest to cut portions out of the blog post I realized this is my blog and if I want to overshare...I'll overshare. :) I had quite the few vacationers this year...which is so fun! My own family hired a photographer on our last vacation and I treasure those images because if we had not had them done I probably would not have been in any of our vacation pictures!!

Anywhoo...I had so much fun with them I could have packed myself up and gone on through the rest of their vacation with them!! They were ready to play and let things go with the flow. They loved and hugged and had a smile on their faces even when their daughter went running into the water in her cute little outfit and got drenched at the BEGINNING of our session...that was her and they went with it!!

Here are a few (ha, ha! ok all) of my favorites from our time together...until the very last light.

low tide | family photographer los angeles

One of my favorite shoots from 2013 was a returning client who had moved away but was here on vacation! We have been blessed this winter with AMAZING weather and a super low tide, making me fall in love with southern california even more (as if there was any doubt how much i loved it before!) Here are a few of my favorites from our morning at the beach!
