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!
