We were recently up in Orange County at San Juan Capistrano to do a family shoot with Craig and Stephanie. It is always a challenge to get the little ones to smile in front of the camera, but after a little warming up we were able to get a few smiles. They were a bit shy to take a few photos, but even the "shy" photos turned out great.
Their daughter had an amazing dress and she loved showing it off by spinning. Of course we made the most of that when we could.
The bricks by the movie theater made for a nice color and texture to use for the family. Loved getting the shots there with them.
Since it is fall, there were a few leaves on the ground. There is not going to be a ton of leaves in Southern California, but when we were able to find an alley with a few, the kids were ready to toss it around. The train brings a nice color for the photos.
To go on train tracks or to not go on train tracks.... we seem to lean on going on the tracks every time.
