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?
When we are surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it would be a crime not to take advantage of Such Beauty! Our Local Beaches in Carmel Make the Perfect Backdrop for this! The 'D' Family and I were so blessed to arrive at this location and find the PERFECT Weather and (believe it or not) No WIND! Which, if you are from Carmel you know, it next to impossible.
The 'O' Family came to me from a fundraiser auction and I was so excited to finally get to meet someone who won a session by supporting one of our local schools! We had an amazing day in Monterey, the weather was beautiful and the location was so special location for portraits because it was where they were Married!
As mom's, we are always trying to make sure we photographer the important things, and those adorable moments. If you were to go back through the last 5 years of photos, how many are you actually in? I would put money down that it is less than 10%. Now how many of you (in your heads) just said, but I looked terrible that day, or I will take pictures with them when I lose 5 more pounds? (Be Honest!) Well, guess what? Your kids don't care! You will end up with a lot of photos of your children for yourselves, but how many photos of you will your kids get to keep for themselves? NOW is the time ladies! This Mommy took advantage and look at the adorable results she and her baby will have forever!
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.
