Nice weather in Los Angeles is something you can usually count on. Not so for a recent beach photo shoot. The sky was grey and drizzly as I made my way to Santa Monica Beach. I knew this was not the weather mom had in mind when she booked a beach photo shoot. I felt particularly responsible for the weather as this lovely family wasn’t local, they were visiting from Texas and had booked a session weeks before to coincide with their family’s Spring Break getaway. Mom, however, was not deterred and wanted to forge ahead, bad weather be damned. So, through the magic of photoshop, I’ve turned a grey day, into a not so grey day. What do you think?
While I took pictures of the whole family, for this post I really want to showcase the pictures of the siblings. Maybe it’s because as a mother I always find that pictures of my two boys together are among my favorite, or maybe it’s because this brother and sister look like they are best friends, but actually because they are teenagers, they often don’t see eye to eye. Regardless, I think that in years to come, they will cherish images of them together and the memories of the fun they shared while on vacation in Lalaland.
I really enjoyed taking pictures of teenagers, maybe next year I’ll start taking photographs of high school seniors. Hope you enjoy them too!
