Nichols Family Portraits - El Porto, Manhattan Beach, CA

I met with the Nichols clan at El Porto Beach in Manhattan Beach for their beautiful sunset family portrait session the past week and I'm so excited to share it with all of you!

For those of you who haven't heard of El Porto in Manhattan Beach, you're in for a treat! It is the beach to go to for South Bay locals and swarms of people from El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, and even Hermosa Beach flock to it whenever the sun is out. It's a great place to surf, hang out and is always buzzing with people.

For the Nichols family portrait session, We parked near the food stand and made our way to a nearby lifeguard tower. Once the golden hour started, we were off and running! 

Christian loves candids and so do I, the kids were awesome and had a blast hanging at the beach during sunset, and we got some fantastic images. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to capture the Nichols family portraits at El Porto. It was a beautiful Manhattan Beach Sunset with a wonderful family!
