I met Ben, Juniper and their little cuties Laila and Aurora at Lighthouse field, Santa Cruz for their family portrait session. After all this rain the grasses were so high, at times it felt like we were lions stalking prey in the African savannah… But the only guns were my Nikons, which managed to help me get some lovely photos of this attractive family of four. Laila, especially, was adorably photogenic with her Shirley Temple curls and cherub face. The thing I love about Lighthouse field is not just the green grass spotted with light flowers, but the large dead trees that mark the landscape like fallen heroes. Their twisted roots and solid trunks are a testament to their past liveliness, and retain a solidity that is not unlike their petrified brethren.
I hope you enjoy the photos, I’ve posted a few of my favorites below. There’s more to see at www.GoodEyePhotography.com.
