If you can believe it, I live a short bike ride away from this gorgeous beach and it’s the first time I ever booked a photo session at this specific spot. Nestled just south of the beach parking lot is what looks like our very own mini slot canyon and I can’t even begin to write about how gorgeous it is, even more so looking through the lens of my camera.
Another first time thing was actually connecting and getting to know this lovely mama…through Instagram. I realize this is not a new phenomenon, but I never thought I could really personally know a new friend through social media. I am so glad I did though because this gal and her sweet family are gold! Lovely, kind and fun…all the qualities of a friend to have as part of your squad, ladies. These gals don’t come around often! What’s awesome is not only do we connect on a personal level (her husband is a fireman, too!), but she’s a photographer and has been for a while. You can find her and her hubby working side-by-side when he’s not putting out fires at Staring Down the Sun. For now, check them out at one of the best hang outs in our little beach town, Calafia State Beach.
