Last week, I took the kids to Carlsbad so I could test light for a session. We were referred two a few different spots and fell in love with one of the beaches instantly. The cliffs had been carved away by the waves, with rich green moss growing in and around hidden caves. It was other-wordly and truly magical. I did feel slightly discouraged because the afternoon light was casting harsh shadows and the spot, though awesome, would not be a good fit for portraits. I was prepping to leave when Viv walked toward the sea, as if she were mesmerized by the glare sparkling on the receding shoreline. I snapped a quick shot and knew it would be overexposed with my settings but I wanted to capture it anyway. And I'm so glad I did!
