In celebration of Jillian turning four years old (still can’t believe it!) we headed out to the beautiful coast of LaJolla to capture these images. Jillian arrived just waking up from a nap but she proved to be a trooper and jumped right in with smiles and being ever so still for me. Even though we didn’t get those beautiful sunset skies we were hoping for, I feel I captured her happy personality. Because to me, it isn’t always about the background but the subject and Jillian is certainly the star! Next time I shoot coastal in October, I can’t forget my sweater. Brrrrr.
