Pleasanton Hills Couple's Session | Jay & Lauralei

Well it's summertime in California again. Trails are no longer covered in snow so more hikes are available, people are going to the beaches and surfing, more tourists are filling up the major cities, families and friends are getting together for 4th of July! It's exciting! What's not so exciting are skies filling up with smoke again in our state due to fires. 

Just a couple of days before this photo session with Jay and Lauralei there was a fire that spread smoke close to our shooting location. More information on the fire can be found HERE, so if you think the sky looks bad, it's because it was. What wasn't bad however was photographing this couple. 

Jay and Lauralei are two of the most approachable couple I have worked with. Even after hiking up some steep hills in Pleasanton, they kept their cool in the warm 90+ degree weather and even threw in some jokes throughout the hiking and photo session. Plus they have experience behind and in front of the camera, so we it was nice to have other creatives to talk to about today's photography world.
