The Campos Family is one of my favorite clients. I have had the privilege of photographing their growing family since 2015. For family sessions, I like to keep things simple and relaxed. I always want my sessions to be fun and memorable. I also like to take pictures with just the parents as well. Years from now, I want my clients to have beautiful portraits of part of their love story. I want them to be the center of attention in a few of the photos because sometimes the kids can take over. The beach is great for this because I can get some creative shots of the kids exploring the space. Plus who doesn’t feel great with their feet in the sand and the warmth of the sun on your skin. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when your at one of the Central Coast’s beaches. We have so many great ones to choose from and each have a different feel to them.
Morro Rock, a State Historic Landmark, was formed about 23 million years ago from the plugs of long-extinct volcanoes. Morro Rock was an important navigational aid for mariners for over 300 because the rock is approximately 576 feet tall which made it the most visible in a chain of 9 peaks. The rock itself was mined on and off until 1963. Morro Rock provided material for the break water of Morro Bay and Port San Luis Harbor. Then California passed a bill to preserve this amazing Historic Landmark and it has pretty much stayed the same since. Morro Rock also became State Landmark #801 in 1968. The rock has since been designated a bird sanctuary for the peregrine falcon and other bird species.
Most days you will find lots of surfers enjoying the waves and hundreds of families spending time together. Thank you for taking the time to check out my art work.
