Nicole & Adrian decided that this year, their family photos would be taken at the beautiful Monarch Butterfly Grove and continue towards the beach. Since we had gotten some rain the week before their shoot, the grasses started popping up and things were getting greener. Of course, their family isn’t complete without their two lovable golden retrievers. With a little bit of coaching and lots of treats, I had smilies all around. I am a HUGE DOG LOVER! So whenever a client wants to include their pup, I am always excited. Not only do I get to capture their cute personalities, I can to include some play time as well.
