This lovely family lives in Texas but was in the area visiting family. They figured that it would be a nice change of pace from their usual family photos and boy, they were right! The Monterey Bay Area and Carmel hold a special place in my heart because it's where my late father lived for many years. We would spend weekends biking the trails from Seaside to Pacific Grove, we'd photograph sea otters at Point Lobos, and we'd watch the dolphins swim off the coast of Marina. I truly believe that the Monterey Bay Area is one of the most beautiful places in the world and felt so lucky to do this session there.
