Take lots of wind, and sunscreen and sand and you get a pretty wild photography session!  Especially when it is after a BIG rain storm that left the beach covered in seaweed.  Oh well, the kids are adorable and the props and styling are done by my good friend Rashae Taylor, who is geting ready to launch the most fabulous Vintage Rental company!  The session was for my gal Jennifer Taylor’s amazing line of Chemical Free sunscreens and skin care, Smart Girls Who Surf (definitely click to check out her website).  Thanks to all involved!  My favorite one has to be baby Jensen working her little heart out to get sunscreen ALL OVER HER BODY!  Enjoy!

After last year’s bummer summer weather, I am so thrilled at the gorgeous evenings we have been having at the beach.  It is the perfect lighting for anyone, families, engaged couples, kids, weddings…. the list goes on and on.  It was back to the Blue Sky’s office with me (you know, my beach front, get your toes wet, office) with several gorgeous engagement sessions over the last few weeks.  These two flew over from Vegas to take care of their last minute wedding details with An All Inclusive Event, and to get some beautiful portraits on the beach.  I had a blast playing with a new lighting set up and enjoying the beach in an almost private setting!  Enjoy!

The day started just a little gloomy and we feared perhaps the rain would come in….but by the afternoon, true to May Gray’s form, the sun was breaking through the clouds.  The great news for both Sarah and Shawn was that the overcast light was a perfect compliment to the bright colors they chose for their wedding at Laguna Village.    Not to mention that everyone looks beautiful in wedding photographs that are taken in soft, even light!  Sarah’s two boys helped her get ready and fussed about as if they were the parents for the day.  Sarah, surrounded by her friends and adoring parents, looked beautiful.  Shawn, although a little nervous, was beaming.   Emily and I really enjoyed the beautiful day… topped off by a crazy good dance from Sarah’s son and Mom!  Enjoy!

 

The wind was howling and the tide was high…..I was sure that we would have to move Tricia and John’s engagement shoot to another beach, but we decided to head down and check out the beach anyway.   I adore that particular beach because you can get so many different looks and landscapes out of just a small area.  Lucky for me… this was one of the only beaches protected from the wind and there was hardly anyone on the beach!  Sooo….my beautiful beach, a fabulous couple and sail boat blue seas, everything I could ask for in a photography session.   Not to mention, that I am a sucker for tattoos on beautiful people and these two delivered!  Enjoy!
