carmel photographer // monterey photographer // big sur family session

I met Kristen when both of our oldest kiddos were in preschool, she was the one mom there with me early at drop off waiting for the doors to open ( my kids have always been early risers). So when she told me she had friends who had access to their own private beach in Big Sur I practically begged to take their family photos there. I have taken family photos here in the past but only for people who are able to get access. It’s really funny to imagine for people out of town, but most locals are trying to find non-beach locations most of the time. I think we take for granted the beautiful California Coast we live on. Fun fact they drove the wrong way across this bridge in “Big Little Lies” ( the HBO show that was filmed here) when they were dropping their kids off at school. I had so much fun on this adventure session with Kristen, Chris, Tyson and Cohen.
