I don’t think I’m the only Angeleno to admit that I rarely go to the beach. It’s not that I don’t love the beach. It’s just that it’s so far. And the water’s so cold. And it’s such a pain to park. Etc., etc., etc. Basically, I’m lazy and a baby when it comes to making the trek out to the local beaches. And Los Angeles has some beautiful coastlines. But, I need a bit of a push if I’m gonna make the effort to haul out there. So when my photographer, Michele, suggested we plan a shoot at Will Rogers State Beach, I jumped at the chance. And I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. My goal with The LA Survival Guide is to feature the City of Angels as a supporting character in all my post and photos. We live in one of the more striking locations in the world (I call it a living set); it would be a shame not to take advantage of our surroundings. And few places are as quintessentially LA as the beach. Though I didn’t feel quite ready to strip down to my bikini for the camera, we were able to grab some beautiful images in some cool, casual loungewear. Nothing says Southern California quite like denim on my body and sand under my feet. Almost makes me want to make the beach a part of my routine. Almost.
