I love summer and summer in San Diego is always a blessing. The beach makes for a great backdrop with any photo. Here's one of my favorite and most recent summer beach photograph. If you look closely at this photograph you'll see a tiny figure in the background, a nice surprise! This is one of the things I love about outdoor shoots, as much as we try to stage the shoot, there are always lovely surprises or 'imperfections' that makes a photo more exciting.
*edited in photoshop and taken w/ my Canon Powershot SD1400, a small but useful point and shoot camera, that I try to keep in my purse when I have no room for my DSLR.
