Do you have Southern California on your bucket list of places to take your family? If so – this blog post is for you! As I’m sure you can gather – most of my lifestyle session clients are local. They know the area well and have their favorite parks or beaches already scouted for our shoot location. But every once in a while – I get an inquiry from someone who is going to be in town visiting and wants to have me photograph their family. Talk about feeling flattered!
This family of five was in Los Angeles for a short time and so we decided to fit a family session in. And Santa Monica was the p-e-r-f-e-c-t summer spot to meet up! I mean, even if it’s not summer – is there ever a reason to not visit (and love) Santa Monica? I think not!
Santa Monica Family Session
When it comes to family sessions – I’ve written a bunch of blog posts! For example, 3 Tips for Surviving Your Family Photo Session and Nailing Your Family Photo Session Style are amongst my most popular. I could talk for days about ways to make your session go smoothly — but here’s the thing. I can’t make you TAKE the photos. That part is up to you – the scheduling, carving out the time and just making space for it to happen. And it’s so, so important.
I mean, look at the photo evidence below! This family of five is simply adorable and full of love. Don’t even get me started on their wardrobe selections. Everything from the colors to the textures to the HAIR BOWS was perfect.
The backdrops of Santa Monica did not disappoint either (as predicted)! The girls loved the bright pink blooms and the jewel tones of the water really allowed their outfits to pop!
So, what do you say? Are you planning on visiting Southern California sometime in the next year? Let’s meet up! Contact me here and tell me about your travel plans!
