Mommy and Me Mini Session

I've been so excited to share this session! I met Rochelle and Karina on their mommy daughter road trip last year and we had a great mini session and I was so happy when Rochelle told me they were taking a trip again! I love that Rochelle wants to capture these moments with Karina and puts so much thought and planning into their clothes, styling, everything. They have such a sweet bond and I loved getting to capture it again. 

We met up at Goleta Beach this time and I'm so, so happy we did. The sunset was gorgeous and rich. We also got a special scene thanks to our south facing beach. The sun was setting behind the mountains, and the moon was glistening over the water. In my three years in Santa Barbara I haven't had this happen. There was just enough sunlight to light Rochelle and Karina, but it was soft enough to be able to see the moon and reflection on the water. I hope you love it as much as I do!
