Santa Cruz Family Portrait Photography: Bliss at the dog beach

I feel so lucky that I got to shoot this beautiful family last weekend. The weather was perfect…

Perhaps the only stationary image that I was able to capture of this sweet guy:

Wow, you guys really are so beautiful…

As I posted these images, I realized that I never got the chance to post the last shoot I did with these awesome people last fall. The day was overcast, but the subjects glowed just the same!

The beach images are actually for an artist who will be doing a painting of this family. Can’t wait to see the finished product! K,M,A,N,&R…thanks for a wonderful evening, you guys are so easy to be around that I forget I’m working! Many thanks and much Love to you all! -Jo
