My dear friend, fellow photographer, and all around amazing lady, Monika was traveled with her family from Florida, to Colorado, then down the California coast this summer. When she told me their journey had an extra day between San Francisco and LA my first thought was, “COME STAY HERE!” Now I know Sacramento isn’t the most travel-worthy place, but I also know that if I were on vacation with my family for 3 whole weeks straight I would want a “normal” day at home (or someone else’s home) where the kids can play with other kids and have a nice home cooked meal. So they did just that! They came inland for a day and hung out with us. Of course, she wanted to shoot and meet up with other local photog friends too. So we set up a “just for fun” session for her and headed to a new location on an awesome ridge top in Rocklin. I LOVE exploring new places and finding the light, so even though this shoot was technically for Monika, I had a blast as well. Here are a few of my favorites from our session, and at the bottom are some of Monika’s iPhone snaps of our fun time together (including breakfast the next day).
