The Miller Family – Oregon Coast Family Photographer
I am an ocean girl. I grew up about an hours drive away from the coast, often delighting in family trips to Santa Cruz or driving to Ocean Beach with friends in High School. No shock that I fell in love with San Diego and after applying to colleges only on the California coast, made the leap and moved to San Diego…and stuck around there for 10 years! Moving to Oregon was an easy decision as there’s water at every direction, whether it’s rivers, lakes or the ocean! Being an hour drive from the most serene stretches of coast makes me happy and every single time I go there, I fall in love all over again! I had been wanting to do a session at the Oregon Coast for a long time and was SO happy when the Miller family wanted to make the trek out there, too! Of course, it’s Oregon in July so while San Diego beaches are filled with umbrellas and beach goers that actually go in the water, Oregon beaches are well…not that! It was chilly and windy, so the little ones were like “Um, hey, photographer lady? We’re cold!” but nevertheless, they all were troopers and I loved capturing their family, including the sweet moments in between. Here’s a few of my favorites from our time at Rockaway Beach!While I adore the colors of the coast…these first few in black and white melt my heart! I’m a sucker for black and white and the emotion it can capture.
