The Wileys {Family}

This was a very fun shoot! I don’t like photographing family photos where everyone gets in their favorite blue jeans and white t shirt and sits on the beach with a fake smile. Thats just not what a family really is to me. I love being able to capture the natural emotions and interactions that the family members have on a daily basis. And this session was exactly that. A family and lifestyle shoot in one. I met the Wileys in San Juan Capistrano and we cruised around the Los Rio Street Historic┬áDistrict. The place was buzzing with shutter clicks as hordes of photographers roamed through shooting their own engagement/family/whoknowswhat sessions. The last family session I did was this same location so I went to the spots that I liked and explored some new ones. It started to rain on us, which scared all the other photographers away. But not us! We had the place to ourselves and got some fun playful images of this awesome family! Here are some of my favorites:

I photographed this family down in San Juan Capistrano around the train station. I got to work with some nice soft, hazy light and we stopped by a few different locations getting some formal photographs as well as a lot of fun candids! Here are a few of my favorites from today:

Aaron and Jessica are soon going to have a new baby in their family and wanted a meternity session. We shot in their backyard and in their house and we had one of the most amazing sunsets as our backdrop! I setup my flash and umbrella and got some cool portraits as the sky exploded behind this beautiful family. Once inside, everyone painted their hands onto Jessica’s stomach…what a cool idea! The photographs turned out great! Here are a few favs:
