Last week, I posted about a workshop I recently attended in California and today, I am following up that post with a portrait session I did with Monika Greenaway. Monika is a very talented and super sweet fellow photographer from Carmel, CA. I approached Monika about doing a session together, for a few reasons. I wanted to connect with some wedding photographers while on my trip to Cali, I definitely wanted to do a shoot somewhere on the gorgeous Big Sur coast, and I also wanted to get myself on the other side of the camera. During engagement sessions and wedding days, my clients always put themselves out there and push past their comfort zones, so I really wanted to put myself in their shoes and see what its like! Monika and I did photos of each other, and I love how they turned out!
Monika had a great location in mind, that was just a short drive away from her hometown of Carmel. Calla Lilly Valley is tucked in a little valley along Highway 01 and it was just out of this world. Such a stunning spot!
