Talk about gorgeous – look at these images sent in by Shannon Aikin (a new favorite!!).  Stunning mom, gorgeous family, and the images themselves.  I love the light Shannon captured and the sunflare in some of the shots.  Not to mention how stunning the location is itself. All in all, everything aligned perfectly in this touching and gorgeous shoot.

From Shannon:

My name is Shannon Aikin and I am a natural light photographer based out of a tiny town in Indiana. I am fortunate to travel the US for my clients and recently got back from California where I met some amazing people and enjoyed the sun as much as possible. This family and I met early in the morning at El Matador Beach in Malibu for a gorgeous and joyful session. Caroline is an actress, stylist for children’s photo sessions and an incredible mother to little eighteen month Walker. Behn is a director for viral and short videos and is from a small town a state over in the midwest. We all instantly bonded and had a wonderful session that brought a lot of inspiration to me as I gear up for the busier time of my year.

My lens is a Canon 35mm 1.4 and my camera body is a Canon Eos 60D.
