The Venzke Family | San Clemente Pier Photographer

I don't hide the fact that I love to do sessions on the beach. Being from Northern California, I'm not used to warm, sandy beaches where you can hang out sans parka and closed toed shoes. Brianna and her beautiful little family drove from San Diego to meet me in Orange County at San Clemente Pier. I had never been there before and found it be much more quiet and peaceful than the larger beaches that I've shot at (Santa Monica and Manhattan). We let the kids play and enjoy themselves which is my go-to trick to fun, genuine beach photos.

It kind of looks like snow, right?
