Rachel reached out to me through instagram expressing that she was really hoping to have a family beach session done in Southern California. The beach was important to them, and I could not wait to make their family beach session dreams a reality! Rachel and Alex live in Arizona, but Alex had spent time in Southern California while growing up. I knew she was my kind of client when she mentioned how she wanted to get a family session done while she was on vacation!
We settled on Little Corona Beach in Corona Del Mar. This is a favorite beach of mine for family beach sessions because of its beautiful rock formations and cliffs, while also being a pretty mellow beach with few crowds. The water is calm, and the scenery is gorgeous. Another reason I love this beach is because I always meet my families at the top and we take a nice little walk down to the beach together. This gives me a chance to enjoy chatting and getting to know my families, while also becoming fast friends with the little ones! This wasn’t hard with Camilla and Kingston. Camilla was sweet and friendly from the moment I started taking to her, and Kingston has the biggest grin. Can we also talk about how adorable their names are? Original, yet classic.
While waiting for the sun to rise a little higher, Kingston was running around giving the sweetest smiles and so I just began to snap away. Oh. My. Heart. He’s going to be a heartbreaker! Camilla jumped in and gave her brother all of the loves and I just knew this session was going to become a favorite of mine.
The soft morning blue colors give me all of the feels, and their outfits were perfect for this setting. Basically Rachel is mom goals and really just had everything together so perfectly. You can definitely tell she is raising some kind, thoughtful children. As we parted at the end of the session, Camilla gave me a hug and Kingston signed “thank you”. Can I get a heart melting emoji or what?!
