One of my favorite things about living in California is being able to take a drive down the scenic Pacific Coast Highway. I love the winding, cliff-hugging road and the majestic blue sea crashing against the rocks below. The scenery is mind-blowing and it’s no surprise that the PCH is one of America’s best-loved driving destinations! Just check out these Montara Beach Family Photos!
The P Family
Meet the wonderful P family and their adorable twin boys, Samuel and Matthew! Besides the wonderful opportunity of photographing my good friends, this particular day was special because it marked my very first family session in California!

Since Highway 1 was one of the first things I fell in love with when we moved to California, I knew that I wanted my first family session to take place along the breathtaking PCH. Even though there are many scenic locations on this road, we ultimately decided on the beautiful Montara State Beach in Half Moon Bay!

Although family portraits on the beach usually look fun and carefree, they are often a lot more challenging behind the scenes. Sun, sand, wind, and crashing waves are tricky elements to work with when photographing a family. Now throw in adventurous twin toddlers who love water, and you got yourself a serious job to do!
A big thank you to my wonderful friends for giving me the honor of capturing your family portraits! Despite getting a little wet and sandy, I loved the memories we were able to preserve from this day! I will always cherish this experience and remember Samuel and Matthew’s beach-crazed smiles and little soaked pants!
