The Dinsdale family was looking for a nature feel to their family portrait session for their holiday cards. As an Orange County Family Photographer we have the option of several beautiful locations around us. I asked the Dinsdale family to meet me at my favorite location in Orange County CA and they were so happy they did. They didn’t realize that a place existed in Orange County that wasn’t surrounded by homes or shopping malls. I joked and told them this is my little slice of heaven, and that nobody knew about this secret location. We all know, that’s not true, since the parking lot was full with 30+ cars with families and photographers trying to fight for space to shoot. What do you expect, we as photographers are working during one of the busiest times of the year for holiday family portraits. Here are some of my favorites from our family portrait session.
