Yes, yes, yes. I went a little overboard. I know I’m a family photographer, but when I’m photographing my OWN family, I have the tendency to go over the top. But don’t even try to pretend that if Abey was your niece you wouldn’t have posted this many pictures too!
Abey is now officially 18 months old – and it was time for another session. This time, with mom and dad. We headed down to Newhall Community Park in Concord, CA. If you haven’t been to Newhall Park and you live in Concord or Clayton, CA you should go! They have great walking trails, a dog park, and lots of green grass – which make for great family pictures.
I think there are some special pictures here. And if you don’t mind, I’d like to take a minute and comment on why. First, it doesn’t hurt to be uber cute (and beautiful and handsome). The three of them are just beautiful people. But – what I really love about these pictures is the lighting. Even beautiful people need to be beautifully lit for a beautiful image! And Dave and Lesley were willing to work with me on the timing of the session to make sure that happened.
I always try to be as accomadating to my clients sechedules as possible – but take a look for yourself. The time of day really does matter! These pictures would look very different if they were taken even one hour earlier. When your only light source is the sun, you need to wait until it is lower in the sky to get both the dramatic and even lighting you’ll see in these pictures. If you are thinking about scheduling a session – keep in mind that the time matters :-).
Thanks guys for working with me on the time! I think it was well worth it.
Abey – you are a doll! Thanks for being so spirited during our session!
If you’d like to have me photograph your family at Newhall Park (or any other place) – drop me a line! Thanks for reading.
