Santa Cruz

 

My one year in California is fast approaching! I thought it would be fun to share pictures of Santa Cruz, where we currently live. I have always wanted to live near a beach, and now I live 5 min from one! I can not even express how relaxing being by the ocean can be. It brings me peace and harmony and just completely relaxes me. Living in California is nothing like I thought it would be and everything I wanted it to be. It is a great fresh start as a newly wed. I live in an area that is full of artistic souls and am always being inspired. I look forward to capturing many more beautiful scenes in California and can not wait to share! 

Sea Lions! (Not Seals)

Sea Lions! (Not Seals)

My favorite part of California, besides of course the beautiful scenery, is the sea lion population. I love animals. When I first got to see the seal lions they were rafting, all sleeping in the water floating next to each other, often nestled together, and I fell in love. I did not want to leave the wharf.
