Edith and Brendan - Rancho Palos Verdes

Los Angeles has been getting so much rain this month. We almost had to cancel this shoot. I really almost did.

On the way in, I wasn't even sure if we'd get sunlight. I rolled up in three layers of clothing and quickly shed them. It must have been 80 degrees out. The sky was blue, the sea was shining, and there was even a whale off the coast, giving us a show. 

Brendan and Edith arrived shortly after and we had a really fun shoot. Kind of the perfect day for me. 

Photographing couples is fulfilling me in such an emotional way. I seriously get so much joy out of this stuff. I feel all warm and fuzzy, to and from shoots. I sit to edit photos and I'm just smiling from ear to ear the whole time. I don't feel lonely. I feel like this is my calling. 

Right now, it feels like everything is falling into place. These smiles make me sure of it.
