California Girls // Shannan, Stephanie, & Alexa

Shannan, Stephanie, and Alexa have been best friends for years, and it shows. Their obvious love for each other shines through every interaction and word, as well as their never-ending jokes and laughter, which made this photographer's job incredibly easy when I did a photo session with them a couple of weeks ago. I've decided to make this post a mix of regular and behind the scenes photos, because there was such a blurred line between the two during this session (aka: it was awesome).

These girls decided to make the trek to Southern California at the same time two years ago (coincidentally, only a couple of weeks after Toby and I moved out here); Shannan and her husband Matt ended up in LA, while Stephanie and Alexa found jobs in San Diego. They still see each other often, and they've been wanting to do a session for awhile now, to showcase their new found California Girl-dom and their lives out here together. I had such a blast with them! It was a super fun dynamic to work with, since I'm so used to shooting couples and families. Thanks for a fantastic experience, ladies!
