Darcey + Andrew = Aliana > Cyrus (Family Photography, Lighthouse Field and Dog Beach, Santa Cruz, California)
I met this family through one of the preschools I am the official portrait photographer for, and they wanted to get some shots of their whole family. It's such a joy to see kids go from shy wee ones to outgoing individuals, full of fun and sass. We took a few photos near the parking lot at Lighthouse field since the fields are green again, then walked across West Cliff Dr. and down to Its Beach/Dog Beach. I usually shoot a lot more posed photos, but with an 18mo and almost 4yo, you get the few posed ones they'll let you get, then the rest are candids. Even so, we got a bunch of keepers - check them out here!
