What an amazing evening. Just a week earlier we postponed our session with Mahrya because of a fog so heavy we couldn’t shoot, but we really lucked out. Our Montana de Oro session with Mahyra was excellent. A really wonderful young lady, she’s involved in all kinds of sports at Atascadero high and is looking forward to college.
Senior Portraiture – San Luis Obispo High
We had a great time shooting both studio and on the beach with Kaeli, who is enjoying her Senior year at SLO High while looking forward to study abroad. We were able to get a variety of looks with different backgrounds and beach settings out at Morro Bay.
It’s that time of year again. Whether it’s the beach, hills, or San Luis City, the Central Coast is an amazing spot for portraits, especially for Seniors. We’d love to discuss what you’d like for your special photography session.

The Gaines Family came out to Avila on vacation. Avila has so many beautiful spots to use as backdrop, we decided to start out in the trees near the Bob Jones trail and finish up at the beach. We had such a great time with them.
The Flores Family gathered from all over the country for a family reunion in Morro Bay. The fog cleared, allowing for some crisp, clear shots, and we got lucky with a visit from a couple of friendly horses and riders. Carlos, the youngest member of the family, took some big steps for us.
Cambria California Beach Family Portrait Session
The Root Family gathered from all over to meet in Cambria for a family reunion, and we were lucky to be selected as their family’s photographers.
Three generations of the Root family loved being together and the kids loved, of course, playing in the whitewash. It was a great group to photograph as it was clear how much they enjoyed being together.
You can’t be the Cambria’s Coastline for a terrific place for a family portrait session, and Cambria’s Moonstone Beach is a stretch of dark sand beach that is strikingly beautiful. With the slight fog, the light was diffused. This gave us nice colors and a soft, even tone.
Santa Cruz Family Portrait Session
It was wonderful to be in Santa Cruz for a photo session with the Cabrinha Family, who had gathered by the beach to celebrate family. It was a fun shot with a great family. They are a fun group, lots of energy and lots of laughter. The lighthouse, the beach, and the deep blue sea provided excellent backgrounds, and we were lucky to be up in Santa Cruz, a town we love.
Having a reunion or family gathering in Santa Cruz or somewhere else along the central coast of California? We’d love to be your photographers. Our family portait sessions are fun events that are memorable. We want you to have terrific images you’ll cherish as well as memories of a time everyone gathered together.

We had a great time at Montana de’Oro State Park with three generations of the Lovio family. The light was fantastic and we were able to get a variety of looks with different settings. It was also fun to get individual shots of the kids and time playing in the water at sunset. Time flies, it’s always important to have photographs to remember special moments when family is together.

The O’Grady Family
It was a perfect day in Avila for a family portrait session. The fog stayed off the coast and the sun shined for the O’Gradys and their Weimaraner Mia, who, as you can see, was a good laugh. We even got an early moon for a few shots. They’re a fun family. We really enjoyed this photo session.

Avila Beach Family Portrait
We were so happy to photograph the Holback Family at Avila Beach again. We photographed their wedding and it’s wonderful to see their growing family. Their two little girls are such sweet and happy kids.
Family Portraits on the Beach
The beach provides the perfect backdrop for family portraits.
Pismo Beach Family Portrait Photography
The Appleton’s came by limo from the Central Valley to renew their vows on the beach in Pismo. A great choice, Pismo Beach is as beach California as there is! We were able to get a nice mix of looks and it was great to work with such a nice family.
Central Coast Family Portrait Photography
Not only is Pismo Beach a great place for family portraits, but all along the Central Coast , including Avila Beach, Shell Beach, Morro Bay, Cayucos and Los Osos, there are wonderful places for families to get together for a family portait session. With the great weather most of the year and the tremendous scenic locations, the Central Coast is a photographer’s dream.
Get the Family Together
Time flies. We think they’ll always be another chance to be together, or to seal a moment in time with photography, but we never know. What we love about being family portrait photographers is being around really fantastic people, who are glad to be together, taking photos that will be keepsakes of time.
