Guajome Lake,

Oceanside, CA

This location has many beautiful trails with and without views of the lake. It's very green during the summer and has amazing trees. I've been to this location a few times to hike and every time I am reminded of how much I want to shoot here!

San Onofre State Beach,

San Clemente, CA

This is such a diverse location. It has gorgeous cliffs, a rocky beach, and beautiful hiking trails. I've also had the opportunity to hike here and every time I visit I am stunned by its beauty!

Joshua Tree National Park

It is a dream of mine to shoot here! Joshua tree is about a three-hour drive from Oceanside, CA, but the drive is definitely worth it. If you want beautiful desert shots this is the place to go!
