Los Angeles Beach Portraits

      Nothing says summer like a family portrait session at the beach! When it comes to Los Angeles beach portraits, there is not shortage of gorgeous locations to choose from.

      This family wanted to do their session at the Santa Monica Pier (an easy spot to get to from their house)! We scheduled the session during the “golden hour” to get that gorgeous Southern California summer evening light. Luckily for us the “June Gloom” lifted in the afternoon and we were treated to a beautiful sunset.

      To make things even more special, this little girl was celebrating her first birthday. I can’t think of a better location than this to take her first year portraits!
