The magic of the coastside

I think it is so easy to get caught up in the obvious backdrop for your family portrait, afterall, it is a stunning coastline.  But my goal is to never capture you anywhere that doesn't somehow reflect who your family is, and sometimes you just want something different.

I have captured a few families up on this hillside over the last few years, and really, there is nothing up there, except an amazing view of the coast, beautiful light, and a feeling like you are on top of the world.  It kind of has a country meet coastside feel, and really, isn't that where we live :)  

I love this family.  The Clardy's are both passionate parents and teachers and it was an honor to be able to capture their family.  The girls were so awesome to work with and really it just couldn't have been any better!Portraits by Shanti / Shanti Duprez / Family Portraits / Mavericks Bluff / Ross Cove / Half Moon Bay / Princeton Harbor / FallPortraits by Shanti / Shanti Duprez / Family Portraits / Mavericks Bluff / Ross Cove / Half Moon Bay / Princeton Harbor / FallPortraits by Shanti / Shanti Duprez / Family Portraits / Mavericks Bluff / Ross Cove / Half Moon Bay / Princeton Harbor / FallPortraits by Shanti / Shanti Duprez / Family Portraits / Mavericks Bluff / Ross Cove / Half Moon Bay / Princeton Harbor / Fall
