A California Girl Story | Bethany

After the shoot with Eric and Marisa on Saturday in SB, I knew that I wouldn't be able to leave CA without shooting some more pics. At breakfast on Sunday morning, I asked Bethany what she was doing this week, and if she'd be up for driving out towards Solvang for some pretty pictures. Luckily, she had a free day this week, and was up for the idea!

She came and got me early this morning, and we headed towards Solvang. I really had no idea what to expect from this town, but I'd hear from a few people that it was worth the drive. I thought, if it's that pretty, then I am sure we can find some fun spots for pics too!

The drive was amazing....this part of California is so beautiful. It looked like a postcard most of the drive. There were so many spots that I wanted to stop, but we kept going until we found the right one. Our first stop was near a neighborhood, one of the hills that we could get to that wasn't blocked by some private fencing. :) The blue sky on top of the green was so gorgeous....I don't think that any of the shots I got do it justice at all!!

We then drove into town, and walked all over Las Olivas. I loved the feel of the architecture there, and we had a great time discovering all the neat nooks the town had to offer us.

Bethany - I had a blast with you today....you were such an amazing model, a true California girl, and you looked beautiful!! I can't wait to move here and get to know you better. xoxo

I might have to stop reading your blog. You're talking about all my old stomping grounds. Solvang. Los Olivos. I can't stand it. Totally homesick. Totally jealous. If you write that you've gone to Lompoc, my hometown, I'm definitely done. :)

Like Risa, I too love the one with the truck! Also Like All Things BD, I was born in San Luis Obispo. I remember Pismo and Avala beach, Madonna Inn in SLO, Lompoc, Paso Robles, Santa Rosa, Morrow Bay... All places you should see.

Great pictures!
