Kellie & Randy's Family Session - Malibu Shores, CA Portrait Photographer

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Kellie is one of my best friends in high school, and I am thankful that I got to see her while I was in California last month.  I stayed at her and her husband's house in Newbury Park for several days before Bobby and his sister flew to Los Angeles, where I met up with them, and then drove down to Yucaipa and Lake Elsinore to see their aunt and dad.  I had such a great time in California while staying at Kellie and Randy's house.  I got to hang out with their handsome Labrador Retriever named Dodger.  He is such a sweet boy and stole a piece of my heart :)

Kellie always told me how she wished she could take Dodger with them every time they fly back to Florida and visit her family so that they could have a family photo session with me.  Flying Dodger all the way from Cali to Florida just for a photo-shoot is not such a hot idea, so of course, when I was in California, it was a must to have their family pictures taken then! 

We went to Santa Monica Mountains National Park first for pictures since it was closer to their home.  Kellie and Randy told me that they recently had a bad wildfire in the area, and when we got there, sadly, the mountains look so bare and "dead." We took some photos there anyway, and I found one lone standing tree up on the mountain that was fun for pictures.  We didn't stay long there and drove to Malibu Shores for the rest of our photo-shoot.  It was quite an adventure getting to the shores since we had to beat the "July gloom" hovering over us.  As we got closer to the shores, I saw this huge sea fog rolling in and hiding the sun from us.  The sun was still shining in certain areas of the coast, and we tried to get there fast before the sun sat behind the mountains.  One thing for sure, I never have that problem here in flat-land Florida :) 

Once I'm caught up with work and hopefully before the wedding season starts to get busy again, I will post more personal photos from my California trip.

Enjoy!

Corinna, you did such an amazing job! That day was overcast and part of the mountain was charred. Yet somehow you worked your magic. The lighting is good and the mountain looks fine. You exceeded our expectations and they were high since we know your work. Thank you for putting your heart into our pics, we will treasure them always!!!
Love,
Kellie
