Happy Lunar Year everyone! Over the past weekend we took our parents on a mini road trip to visit Hearst Castle. If you’ve never heard of Hearst Castle, it’s a national historical landmark mansion built on top of a hill overlooking the central coast of California. It’s a beautiful and majestic place which makes it a dream location to shoot. This was my second visit here in the past five years, but it might as well have been my first. Beside the more iconic areas of the mansion such as the entrance, and the roman & neptune pools, I had forgotten how big this place really was. If left alone, I could explore this place all day long.

In this shoot I’m wearing a black maxi dress from ASOS. I haven’t worn a maxi dress in a long time, but when I saw it online I knew it would be perfect for a regal location such as the Hearst Castle. Since our family were with us we wanted to cut off our shoot short to 20 minutes so we could enjoy time with them. What do you think of these quick shots? I hope you like them. Thank you so much for reading!
