Even during the 2016/2017 water drought in California, there was only one place I could find that was green for family portraits. That place is Sycamore Mineral Springs, Avila Beach, CA. The gardens and hotel and spa are AMAZING. You can rent natural hot springs tubs by the hour and they allow wine!!!! It makes for the perfect date night trust me. Ok, so back to photography… Here is a fun family session that I did during the Holidays. This sweet family lives all over the US but for Christmas, they meet at a different location each year to celebrate together. What a great idea!!!
