Travel photography + a mini portrait session | Half Moon Bay, California

This weekend, I flew to San Francisco to meet my dear friends, the McCreas, first daughter, Larkin! I can't wait to share my time with little lady Larkin, and it was so fabulous to spend time with the family at such an important moment... but Sunday, my amazing grad school friend Krista drove down to meet me from Sacramento for the day, and we went to Half Moon Bay, which in all of my time and trips to the Bay Area, I've never visited! When two introverts get together, you actually end up with a very balanced conversation, and we loved getting brunch, wandering the harbor, and then heading inland to downtown Half Moon Bay.

Wandering downtown Half Moon Bay, we found a yard with this beautiful lemon tree. I want a lemon tree! But hey, I'll settle for a cheerful new Facebook cover photo. :)

Then, on the way home, we found these gorgeous yellow wildflowers along the road, and I just HAD to do some impromptu portraits! Krista and I pulled off and parked at a Christmas tree farm... so different from DC, where every single beautiful spot feels like it requires a photography permit! Beautiful gold flowers + red-headed Krista = an amazing mini portrait session. All my love to Krista for driving 4+ hours roundtrip to spend a few hours with me!
