I know we live in one of the most beautiful counties in California, but do you ever find yourself thinking your Photos are all looking the same? Maybe you don't need to scout a bunch of new locations, maybe you just need to rediscover your favorites! In Salinas and Monterey, Toro Country Park has become a favorite place for many photographers and families. And what do you think of when you think of Toro Park Photos? A big oak tree, fall leaves? Something like this?

This week on "The Adventures of a Family Photographer" we get to take a look into what it is like to be a Family and Children's Photographer! When your co-workers are toddlers and elementary school aged children, it means you never know what is going to happen. You have to be able to think on your feet, and when things don't go according to all your careful planning, you have to be able to improvise and keep it FUN! This was just the case during the 'H' Family Photo Shoot.
No Matter how many times I ask this question, the answer remains along the same lines ... "When is the last time you and your husband had a portrait done?" (awkward side glance, pursed lips) "Uummmmm ... At our Wedding ...????" The actual wording might change, but this is pretty accurate for about 90% of my families. Which makes it all the more important to me to make sure I take a few minutes (while the kids run amok) and get some photos of mom and dad, NOT being mom and dad! Years may have passed, appearance may have begun to change, but put Mom and Dad in that first pose and you can see their beginning all over again.
