Kayla and Brandon's El Matador State Beach Session
Posted By Holly Castillo Photography on Wednesday 06th October 2021
Kayla reached out to me about doing a couple's session with her boyfriend Brandon to celebrate their relationship. Kayla was nervous about their session because they had never had professional photos done before, which is really NOT uncommon! There's this misconception that if you don't know what to do your photos are going to be awful, but the truth is most people and couples that I work with have never had professional photos done, or modeling training. The best photos that I take are when you just cuddle and love on each other, period. It has so little to do with your poses or what to do with your hands. If you are naturally involved with looking at or joking with your partner, your true expressions shine through and those are the most beautiful photos. Just have fun with each other, and everything will be amazing!
We chose El Matador State Beach because the rock formations allow for so much variety in scenery, even though the actual beach is very small. We went in expecting to get a little wet, but the tide came in so strong that we got soaked! Luckily we all laughed it off, and it turned out magical.
This is a note to you: you don't need a special occasion to schedule a photoshoot. Just celebrating your love and relationships is more than enough reason!
