Santa Monica Family Session
If this family looks familiar you are correct! Just a few blog posts down they are featured with their family in Roanoke. Marina and Ray live in Los Angeles (on the beach in Santa Monica try not to be jealous), and I just happened to be in their area last month. I asked them if I could do a session on their turf and they kindly accepted. I was also able to shoot a roll of film in this session. The Find Lab scanned in my film incase anyone is looking for a good lab. They do a great job but it is always so hard to wait those 10 business days to get your photos back. Film adds a degree of coolness and is a really good storytelling aid in photography. Photographing a real SoCal family is really awesome. Growing up in rural East Tennessee, California was a magical land that only existed in books. I read Sweet Valley High, watched Clueless and the Fresh Prince of Bell air, played with my Malibu Barbie and went to sleep at night dreaming of SoCal life. Even though I only moved 3 hours from home, I am so thankful for the beautiful state that I get to visit. I still fall in love each time… fingers crossed.
