After finishing studio portraits in their Huntington Beach home (see previous post), we decided to venture out to the beach for some more casual, relaxed portraits. But our usual sunny August weather was quickly disappearing as a huge & ominous cloud bank came rolling in from the South. We headed North away from Huntington Beach toward Seal Beach and stopped at such a lovely new location just beyond the Seal Beach Pier at River’s End. I loved the little pile of sand dunes with tufts of sea grass growing on them – it gave it a real Eastern seaboard feel… And we certainly had some dramatic skies to work with – we barely beat out the monstrously dark cloud bank in time to get a few priceless shots (I’ve included a shot of that at the bottom of the post, as it was quite impressive). The older two Lhasa Apso dogs came with us to complete the family portraits. They were quite darling additions! Enjoy your sneak peek! Gallery will be up today as well!
