It was technically fall. But the beach was packed, the weather was warm, and the vibe was definitely Southern California beachy! And this was not their first time at the beach. In fact, almost every session I’ve done for this beautiful couple has been here at this exact location. The Seal Beach Pier. I mean, what’s not to like? The old wooden pier makes for a perfect photo backdrop. The parking is convenient, and well, the lighting is always on point! Oh, and throw in an iconic lifeguard tower, and you’ve got yourself the most ideal family portrait session. It’s impossible to not to feel relaxed when you’ve got your feet in the sand and the sound of waves crashing against the pier pillars. I hope this family always comes back to this spot and is able to reminisce about the fond memories captured here. I know I do!
