A senior at Morro Bay High School, Jordan plays football and soccer.  Sweet Springs in Los Osos was the perfect place to get a mix of trees and, of course, the rock.  A great guy, we’re sure Jordan’s going to have a great senior year.

On the Beach Family Portait Session — Avila Beach

Avila Beach is a wonderful place for family portraits.  It was great to be able to document all three families as they are now.  The kids just get so big so fast.  The beach is such a great place for a family portrait session.  It’s beautiful and the kids get to run around and feel comfortable having their picture taken.

It was great to be down south and to be able to squeeze in a family portrait session with the Bless family. Dad Mike is an old friend and it was great to reconnect and get to know his lovely wife and daughter. Little Corona in a Corona del Mar is beautiful classic California cove beach. It was a perfect spot to connect the family with something they love, the beach.  Mike is an amazing craftsman and artist.  Check out his work at Lido Gates.

Aidan was terrific.  After a session in our studio, we ventured out to San Luis and a ranch out on Buckley.  It was great to be out with her horse.  I can’t believe how many photos we took, but everything was so much fun to shoot, we just kept taking more and more and more.

Los Osos Family Portrait Photography – Turri Road

We met the Reynolds Family out on Turri Road for their family portait photography session and were able to catch the last of a terrific flower bloom. Nearby, there’s also some wonderful golden hills and we were glad to get two very unique looks in the same shoot.

The Reynolds were celebrating the birth of their baby girl, who is absolutely adorable, and seems to light up for photographs. Great for us! And the kids were great too, super cute and fun to be around.
