A family on vacation in California. We met up in my favorite local beach town and took a walk. San Clemente pier, the overgrown bougainvillea, T Street, the train, and Lifeguard stand #5 for this beautiful family of five. Loved their easy vibe, and I am OBSESSED with these girls and all of their long straight hair.

I’ve been working away from home so much this year that it’s nice to feature a session on my own stomping ground.
