Grace was visiting Santa Cruz from Southern California and wanted to get some professional photos of herself with her son, Ian. We met at Seabright Beach, which is always a great location (and within walking distance of my house!). I like Seabright in the morning as the sun is off to the left side of the lighthouse, meaning the ambient light around the cement tetradons is ideal for my off-camera artificial lighting system. These giant, four-tiered cement “jacks” are really neat for pictures as they are just so surreal, and add great texture and contrast to the ocean and surrounding area.
Here’s my favorite family photos from Grace and Ian’s session, you can see the rest at www.GoodEyePhotography.com. Feel free to leave a comment!
