Surf Girl Themed Photo Session | Tween Photography | Pismo Beach, California

May 25, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Did you say themed photo session? If so, I'm in! If you look at my previous blog posts you may notice that I'll take advantage of every chance I get to do a themed photo session with our daughter (I've also done lots of themed cake smash and newborn sessions). So when we headed out to California last month I knew I wanted to do a "surf girl" session. In the past her themed sessions have included Coca Cola, Lemonade Stand, Paint Splatters, Wolves, Sunflowers, a Princess Beach Session, and lots of holiday themed sessions for Christmas and Easter. But I have been wanting to photograph a surf session because I think this girl's hair makes her the perfect little surf girl... at least for photo purposes. 

Now, I'm not going to lie, conditions definitely were not ideal for this session. I had wanted to do them during "the golden hour" so we could walk down the beach and get some shots with some of Pismo Beach's beautiful rock formations but we had to return the rented surfboard well before we could make this happen. So we stuck around the pier so we could block the harsh sun with the pilings for many shots. Of course the weather also decided it didn't want to work with us and the forecast for 75 degrees turned into the 60's, making it pretty chilly in the shade. For a tween that is not exactly thrilled to do a photo session, a lack of ideal conditions can be disasterous. But I think despite the challenges we got some pretty good shots and I'll definitely be adding a few to the seasonal images I display of her throughout the year in our home.
