Early in the year I got a request from a senior about taking some portraits for her. In Santa Cruz County there is only one photographer who takes all of the senior portraits for the yearbooks. That is, every public, and many private schools, all use this one person, so students rarely branch out and pay a second photographer for pictures since they can't go in the yearbook anyways. But this girl was not a part of one of those schools, and pretty quickly it was decided her friends also wanted to join us.
We headed out for the beach and the wind and rain were coming down, but we made the best of it and had a lot of fun! Once we wrapped up at the beach we headed for downtown Santa Cruz and finished up with some shots there and some warm drinks. We even took some pictures with the Pink Umbrella Man!
