Choosing a location for outdoor family photos
You know that saying, right? “The grass is always greener on the other side.” I say this because when living in California, I always was thought, “Why is it so hot all the time? Portland is so beautiful. It’s never that hot there.” Now here I am, living in Portland thinking, “Man, I miss that California sunshine, especially the light it creates in my photos!” Oh, the struggle! It’s a good thing California is my 2nd base for photography. That means I don’t get to miss out on photographing couples and families at a place like Laguna Beach, CA. That also means I get the best of both worlds; I can have extraordinary Oregon waterfalls as my backdrop and an actual castle on the side of a beach in California.
Trusting me as your family photographer
This family session with Sokey, Chris and their so adorable daughter, Chloe, took place at Laguna Beach, California. Sokey mentioned that she wanted beach portraits and the very first place that popped into my head was Victoria Beach. It’s a small beach tucked away with only one entry access that allows just enough privacy for anyone to get comfortable. Of course Sokey, Chris and Chloe were naturals in front of the camera. Their family’s love and bond were easily captured through my lens. What made this shoot extra special was their willingness for some adventure; they trusted me with the location and creative vision. I couldn’t be happier!
Professional outdoor family photos
So friends, if there’s anything to take away from this post is that location is key when it comes to taking professional family photos. Whether it’s the luscious greens and majestic waterfalls of Oregon or sandy beaches and rocky mountains of California, these backdrops enhance the beauty of the people and make these moments more magical. You can trust that I will find the best location for your session. All you have to do is tell me your vision, and I will make it a reality.
Thank you Sokey, Chris and baby Chloe for this outdoor family photo session! Your family is so beautiful and I can’t wait to see it grow!
