Aria Photography : Carmel by the Sea

Aria Bethards of Aria Photography shares a recent session in beautiful California.  Her vibrant work has me swooning for warm coastal breezes and sand between my toes!

In Aria's words:

"I recently took a much-needed escape to the most quaint little town of Carmel-By-The-Sea in Northern California. As soon as I drove up to the small village, my heart melted at the sloping wood shingle roofs, colorful painted houses dotting the cobbled streets, and the smell of sea salt and cool ocean breeze. What made this weekend even more special was taking my littlest of 4 children, my baby Oliver, and having that quiet, uninterrupted time together. When you have a house full of little ones, there is wonderful chaos and energy and noise. ;) And while wild adventures with my silly clan is my jam, every now and then it is sweet to have one-on-one time with each child to fill up both of our love buckets. And this weekend in Carmel did just that."
