On my most recent trip to California, I met up with Lauren, Homer, Homer's son,  Raimar, and their senior pup, Pooh Bear (she's 14!) The gang all piled up into their car and drove out from Ventura to meet me for the weekend just for their session! 

We had originally wanted to photograph the session a little further South in Big Sur, but due to summer wild fires we decided to change the location slightly more North. It ended up being better for all of us since it was closer to where we were staying...and not in the thick of smoke and fire...! Plus also found a portion of the beach that was tucked away with beautiful rock formations and way less people than our original beach location. 

Even though it was an engagement session, I loved that Lauren and Homer brought their family! We had such an amazing time walking around the beach and photographing so much love in such an amazing location!
