Sydney and I planned their family photoshoot at one of the gorgeous Santa Cruz beaches. White sand and dramatic cliffs hanging above the ocean were a dreamy backdrop for a family portraits.
Sydney picked one of the timeless dresses from my client’s wardrobe: white lace off-shoulder dress. She also perfectly coordinated the outfits for the rest of the family. Baby Emily was such a sweet girl, looking at the camera with her curious eyes.
The forecast at the beach that day promised us a sunny and warm afternoon. But within minutes we arrived at the location, a thick fog covered the sun. We had just a few minutes before we started to shiver and fled back to the warmth of our cars.
We continued our session at the sunny Arizona Cactus Garden in Stanford the other day, and it went smoothly with the afternoon glow and big smiles.
I am so grateful for the trust Sydney and Marcus put into me, and the final result was the stunning gallery of timeless portraits with the adventure story behind them!
