Love the look of the city?  Especially an old weathered city with charm and texture? Then old town Pasadena is your spot.  With its brick walls, metal doors, wood gates, old windows and little side streets each with a different look you can go wrong.  It will also provide many different options for portrait backdrops.  This spot does require some walking so if you have a hard time getting around this may not be the location for you.  You will also find that you will need to pay for parking there.

Have you ever dreamed of having those dreamy beach portraits with the waves crashing in the background on beautiful rocks and sea cliffs?  El Matador State Beach is that beach.  Once you get there you take a walk down the cliff to the bottom where the beach is.  When the tide is low there are stunning rock formations that are spread out across the sand.  When that sun hits the water as it slowly goes down you get portraits that are straight out of a magazine!  When planning your session for this location tides play an important part on whether or not this location will work.  But, if it does these portraits are beautiful.
