taking photos at the beach

I would like to take some Christmas photos of my kids at the beach and I am looking for advice on places in Laguna Beach to go. A friend of my sisters had her engagement photos shot there, somewhere on the beach and there were some of them sitting on rocks with the water around them too. She said all she remembers is it was in Laguna Beach and some sort of park. She remembers a grassy area and walking down to the beach from there. Does anybody know where this may be, or other places to get some nice photos of my kids. I figured nothing better than pictures of my kids at the beach for a "California Christmas"

Laguna is very photogenic - walk down any street to the ocean and you'll find a great place to take a picture, and plenty of rocks. Just go at low tide.

The beach with grass is Main Beach

Considering your description of "sitting on the rocks with water around them" , this may have been the beach at Heisler Park. Heisler Park has a beautiful grassy area with picnic tables that look out onto the ocean. You must walk down a steep walkway to get to the beach.

This beach is a popular wedding spot and I have a nephew who was married there a little over two years ago. After the wedding, one of my nieces and her boyfriend went out to a rock as the tide was starting to rise and sat there with water all around. It made for a great photo op!

Here are a couple of websites with pictures of Heisler Park. I hope this helps.
