Southern California is a pretty big place. In just an hour you can go from sunny Huntington Beach to the crisp air of the San Gabriel Mountains.
I am fortunate to be able to shoot in such a diverse area and I'm always on the lookout for fabulous locations to take families for portrait sessions.
One place I recently discovered is the Corona Civic Center. This place has everything I look for in a great portrait location: lots of open shade, interesting architecture, and wide open places for kids to run and play.
Corona is located on the western edge of Riverside County and is bisected by the California 91 freeway. Much of Corona is new development, but the central part of the city dates back to early 1900s. The Civic Center is located in this older part of town.
I can't wait for the opportunity to photograph a family here. If you live in the Corona/Riverside area and are looking for somewhere new for photos, please let me know - I would love to photograph you and your family.
