Carpinteria Family Portraits

This family wanted to have family portraits at the tidepools in Carpinteria, CA. So we had to schedule their session with a low tide, near sunset…not to mention availability for everyone concerned! And wouldn’t you know it, the first time we tried, the sun was shining but the wind was blowing so hard it was knocking smaller children over. So we rescheduled for the next confluence of time and tide. Here you can see it was worth the wait…
