Avila Beach Engagement + Family Photos
I met up with Courtney, Craig and their 3 beautiful children a week ago Friday for what we planned would be a quick session of them on the swings on the beach. Little did we know that a huge farmers market and concert was going on so it was total madness on the beach! I had driven in from San Luis Obispo and got a parking place right in front so I didn’t even realize anything was going on until I tried to get through the pirate band and all the pirate dancers. Yes, I said “pirate.”
We decided to scrap the idea of shooting on the swings, walked down the beach to the beautiful south end and shot near the cliffs. Yes, there’s some people in a few of the backgrounds but the kids were great and we all had a great time. The family part was so easy as the kids were very fun to work though Courtney and Craig were heckled by the girls every time I was shooting them alone. They thought it was SO funny when I asked them to kiss so they’d start chiming in and having fun with it. I’m definitely looking forward to their beach wedding in a few months, it’s going to be a great day!
