Beach sessions have typically freaked me out a bit. It's the unpredictability of the light that gives me pause, and then here, this time of year, we have wind. Lots and lots of wind. But I can't tell you how wonderful this session was. I had so much fun getting to know this sweet family and their little one, and honestly, the gloomy day made for some beautifully dramatic photos.

Location: Wall Beach, Vandenberg Spaceforce Base

"We have taken photos at four installations now and Erin at Elm Photography was by far the best experience we have had. She was very patient and creative with keeping our toddler's attention and the poses/locations she planned for us were great. We couldn't be happier with how our family photos turned out."
