A Different Beach Portrait

Reisser_Erica and Chad 011Blog family
Not all beach portraits have to actually be ON the beach.  Some can just have a beautiful view OVER the beach!

We recently did a portrait of Chad and Erica Reisser and their family on top of Point Dume looking south toward Malibu.  What a gorgeous day at the beach…the sand cliffs could inspire a plein air painting.

Erica did such a nice job of coordinating her family’s clothes with just the right blend of variety, color and character, and it paid off in such a big way.  I especially love their youngest son, Phoenix’s seersucker jacket.  Handsome little man, huh?

If it’s time for you to update your family’s portrait, whether it’s at the beach or elsewhere, we would love to help you celebrate your family’s legacy.

What an Amazing Afternoon…

We had a really inspiring afternoon in Malibu recently with Melanie Gouczwaard and her young daughter Emelia. I did the camera studies at both Paradise Cove and at Point Dume. The coreopsis was in full bloom, and it was absolutely stunning.

Here’s a short slide show of our experience:
