Orange County Family Portraits | The Paulk Family

Cloudy beach days can be pretty magical. These fun Montage Laguna Beach family portraits are proof that the beach is a great place for photos whatever the weather might be like! When you’re a Southern California family, you know off-season is the best time to go to the beach. You can bundle up in cute sweaters and beanies, enjoy some coffee on empty beaches, and watch the waves. Well, that’s just what the Paulk family did, and we had a blast playing, exploring, and running free!

LET'S work

This life is thrilling and grand and moments of greatness are threaded through loss, grief, and uncertainty. So for tonight, let's dance and celebrate the love we have here. Now. What a gift. The ultimate luxury.

Whether your love is the strong silent kind that shows itself in knowing eyes and tender embraces, or if your love is the loud laughter and infectious kind that can barely contain the joy and excitement you feel... I want to be there. With my camera. Taking snapshots so that time will forever be frozen still.
