Sunny Park Family Session

I've know Rob and Janet for many years, since before Rob and Janet were Rob & Janet. They are an amazing couple with a gorgeous family.

When Janet and I talked about her family portraits she wanted to go somewhere fun and thought that Irvine Regional Park would be the perfect spot.

The day was absolutely perfect for family photos. Since the park was pretty empty we had lots of time to capture great family shots.

We met up at the park on a sunny Sunday morning. It was an absolutely beautiful day with clear skies and bright sunshine. Rain a few days before our shoot meant we had bright green foliage on the trees.

Lots of filtered sunlight meant we had lots of options for great photo locations. This image was taken near the miniature railroad tracks that run through the park.

We happened upon this awesome spot for a quick, fun photo with the parents being lovey.

I love when I'm able to capture genuine interactions between family members. Her Rob gives his daughter, Alicia, a knowing look.

The sun can be a tricky thing for photography. When the sun is high in the sky it creates harsh shadows and unflattering light. Since we met mid-morning, this was less of a concern, but even more so due to the lush park environment, filled with many trees and great shady spots.

We roamed the park looking for good light and interesting backgrounds. The interesting buildings and out buildings made excellent backgrounds to show off individual personalities.

This was one of the best locations for capturing everyone together. Here, we lined up tallest to smallest.

Is there anything better than a great sibling photo? You can clearly see how these three fit together, but are completely different personalities. Check out the pink polish and leather jacket - to die for!

Beautiful moment between mother and daughter. I love the soft light on their faces.

A tremendous thank you to the Jewells for the opportunity spend time and capture a few moments this year.
