Christy, Scott and Kids (Family Photography) @ Capitola Beach, California

About This Post

Christy, Scott and their two adorable girls met me at Capitola beach this Friday morning – the fog was still relatively heavy, so no sun – but that didn’t lessen the fun! We started with a few full-family portraits under the Capitola wharf – it’s such a photogenic location. I got as many “posed” shots as the girls would give me before the draw of the open beach called to them… which just means I switch to candid-mode and capture them having a great time, exploring the beach that’s new to them. Thanks so much for choosing GoodEye, here’s a few of my favorite photos from the family photo shoot, laid out flush-mount album-style.

About Chris (GoodEye)
Chris Schmauch thinks every business person deserves to have an excellent, professional portrait. Your online photo (think: LinkedIn) is increasingly the “first impression” – and we all know how important that is. A GoodEye portrait is sure to stand out among the sea of crappy selfies or point and shoot photos! Based in Santa Cruz, but traveling all over the Bay Area and beyond, consider taking advantage of Chris’ talent to capture great photos of you and your staff.
