The Ruizes (Family Photography) @ 4-Mile Beach, Santa Cruz

I’m good friends with Jennie, we love to meet up for tacos and margaritas at Olita’s on the wharf. When she suggested we do a big shoot with her siblings and their kids, I was happy to take on the big group and see what I could capture. All the kids were fantastic, took direction well and enjoyed themselves. The adults, well… I won’t get into that. Kidding! Everyone was awesome and gave me opportunities to take some great photos. Here’s my favorites below. Order prints and more at
