Pretty Santa Monica {Santa Monica photographer}

I had the great fortune of living in Santa Monica for 4 years and loved almost every minute, the 405 and the 10 freeways were the banes of my existence…but what Angeleno really enjoys sitting in traffic?

My time is Santa Monica was great both personally and professionally. Who wouldn’t love slipping off their shoes for work and running around on the beach capturing fun family moments? Or better yet, playing at Pacific Park, the games and the bright colorful rides all make for fun portraits too!

All within a half mile are some beautiful locations, both out in the open and some hidden gems as well! Here are some of my favorites from Santa Monica, and these are only in a small part of Santa Monica, the city truly lends itself beautifully to photography.

Spending the day with the light of my life {Los Angeles Children’s Photographer}

For my niece’s birthday, I scooped her up and took her to Downtown San Diego to check out the New Children’s Museum.

What a great place to spend a few hours playing (and learning shhhh, don’t tell her that part, too busy playing!)

Every exhibit is a hands on experience, we painted, we drew, we climbed and bounced and had a fantastic time! Stop by if you’re ever in the area, it’s well worth it!

After the museum, we headed for lunch. And what better way to have a birthday day with Auntie, then to have blueberry pancakes for lunch!

With bellies full of yumminess, we headed to one of my favorite places in San Diego, Balboa Park. When I lived in San Diego, I would go there to hang out, check out the art museums, the photographic museum and my favorite, the Botanical Garden. Unfortunately, the garden was closed the day we went (not a problem, just another reason to go back!), so we walked around the park, played, danced and even played photographers.

I used to sit in front of the reflecting pool for hours. Niece and I sat here while we ate our ice cream, I explained to her how this is my favorite spot in the whole park. She snuggled up next to me, looked up at me and said “You’re my favorite spot”.

I was a puddle of goop after that. She could have asked my to buy her an elephant at that point and I would have!
