Vacationing from North Carolina / by Julie Cruz

What are the odds that 2 photographers from out of state booked me for the same week....and both happened to be staying at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Laguna? Pretty crazy, right? This shoot was on a weekday, so it was a lot less chaotic on the grounds than the previous shoot. We started the shoot in their room and then headed out to the beach. Again, unfortunately there wasn't any sun out, but this super sweet and adorable family and I had fun and enjoyed having the beach pretty much all to ourselves. Chandler is 5, but oh my goodness, such a little crack up. I swore he was more like 20. Such a little gentleman and so funny. Claudia just turned 2 and is such a sweetie. She didn't want to touch the sand or water at all, so she decided to stay nice and safe in daddy and mommy's arms at the beach ;)
