Santa Cruz, baby! | Kim Lind family photography
Earlier this week I took a drive down to Santa Cruz to photograph this gorgeous family from Danville - the baby boy is one of my "Baby Plan" clients but we've never done the whole family until now. I LOVE the beach, and while it can pose some photography challenges - like no shade, harsh sunlight, and for forgetful photographers like me...sunburn! - it's such a fantastic setting for casual and "real" family photos. So in addition to some great 9 month shots of the little guy, I took some beautiful family shots that I think they're going to love. I know I do!
Talk about a crystal clear day - - the bright blue of the sky, the deep blue water and their coordinating blues, tans and whites made for a perfect combination.
I'm a sucker for a daddy and his little girl. I love her expression, and that he's holding her little shoes in his big hands. How cute it that?
This one is so pretty in black and white - it has a very timeless look to it.
For this one, I was going for a faded blue jean kind of look. Just a little something different, an artistic twist...I like it!
And here's a great end shot for the blog preview...gotta love a naked baby on the beach!
