This was one of those family portrait shoots that almost didn’t happen! Traci had booked me back in December for her family session, but it was one of the few days we had where the weather was horrible — not just gloomy and overcast, but threatening, dark skies and lots of rain. We rescheduled it for January, which resulted in another cancellation due to Santa Ana winds. Thankfully, on the third try the weather cooperated and we got a little sun and no winds.
Traci’s main reason for wanting a family shoot was to get a picture of her family that she could blow up really large to hang above her fireplace. And I have to say, she and her husband, Brad, were awesome clients. They told me exactly what they didn’t want (too much sun flare, sitting on grass, etc.) so I could understand their vision, but left the rest up to me. We ended up getting a lot of posed shots for them to choose from, but I was also able to sneak in a few candids which I really ended up liking, too. And I loved shooting their beautiful daughters who were adorable and so fun!
Thanks so much Traci! I loved shooting your beautiful family!
