My first Large Family photo shoot…

While I was on a trip to California the first full week in June I had the opportunity to photograph a family for a friend I knew as a child.  The crazy thing is the friend lives in Wisconsin and I live in Utah, but the rest of her family lives in California, where we grew up, which was the same place I was going.  She needed someone to do family pictures seeing how they haven’t had anything done in several years.

I wasn’t familiar with the layout of the land anymore, and didn’t really know where I should do the photo shoot.  Well, after talking with a local photographer decided on a location and checked it out before I met up with them.   BINGO… the place was one of the nicest looking locations in the area. The only problem I could foresee was lots of BRIGHT sunlight.   I ended up getting lucky and had some clouds roll in that gave us great lighting to use, BUT I also had WIND come up and felt bad about it, but I worked with it anyway.  I would have gladly rescheduled but the group wouldn’t be altogether again for a little while… so I did the best I could.    A great learning experience, and I wouldn’t mind doing this again, because now I know things to look for, and what lens I’d like to get before the next large family group shoot.

    Is the photo shoot you were on when Kaylee broke her foot?
    Great pics! But you already knew that.

      Yes, this is the one I was doing when she hurt her foot.
