Christmas time is usually the time of year when family portraits consist of magical frost-covered everything, cozy parkas and fur-lined boots. But in Malibu? We go to the beach and get our bare feet in the Pacific 365 days a year. Check out this sweet family of four on their Christmas vacation to Malibu, CA. (PS daddy-o is my brother Peter!)
With its acres of gardens, outbuildings, and prime beachfront setting, the Adamson House is the perfect setting for snapping a set of timeless portraits. Summer (with Mama and doggo in tow!) and I explored every nook and cranny of old Malibu estate and came out the other side with these gems.
Disclaimer: Summer snapped these during her freshman year of college, buuuuuut I'm still counting them in the senior portraits category.
Spend ten minutes with this couple and you'll hear about all the wild adventures they go on. Line dancing. Hiking all over these hills. Ever heard of Hash House Harriers? Yeah, I hadn't either until I heard about it from Hilary and Tim. These two are totally made for each other, totally in love, and totally getting married in a few months.
Hilary and Tim (who she affectionately refers to as "Cowboy") wanted an outdoor setting where their boots and Cowboy's hat would fit right in. Wildwood Regional Park, with its miles of rolling hills studded with patches of cacti gets the A-Okay from these two pardners.
