Brandi was referred to me by one of my great clients, Courtney (see her ADORABLE little girl, baby E, here). Last weekend I photographed Brandi’s beautiful family of 3 (with 1 on the way!) at one of my fav new spots – Quail Hill Community Park in Irvine. Not only is Quail Hill a unique family portrait location with lots of space for little ones to run around, but it’s very private also. Perfect for camera shy people :) Photographing little ones is usually a challenge. I’ve found that if I become a child myself (think funny faces, strange animal noises, and pretending to hunt for treasure) the little ones’ interest is peaked. It turns out that baby M was more interested in my camera than anything else, and the bubble gun was broken, so I handed over my camera for her to photograph mommy and daddy. I made a deal with her that I could return the favor by photographing her, and that’s when some of the best shots of the day were created. I’ll do pretty much whatever it takes to get the shots I want- whether it be untrusting a 2 year old with my camera, or just making a fool of myself. Thank you Brandi, Darby, and baby M! Can’t wait to show you the rest of the images soon!
