California is in a state of hyped-up-super-bloom and everyone with a camera or iPhone is taking advantage of it. The rain, although it dragged on far to long for my taste, did our body good and bright florals are springing up everywhere. Many people are going gah-gah over the bright orange poppies, or the neon-highlighter-yellow mini flowers that spring up in every nook-and-cranny, but I’m really digging these beautiful blue/purple wild Lupine flowers! I’ve had a handful of sessions here just this week, with even more requests for next week.
The problem is that us californians are so used to our crunchy-brown-sun-scorched-grass, that we can’t quite contain our excitement over these flowers. As such, many of the flowers are being picked and trampled on in search for the best photos. It really is sad, because I tell clients that I can’t guarantee the flowers will be there next week.
That problem aside, it really is a beautiful planet that God created; so many colors, so many different types of flowers/plants/animals/people. I often sit in awe as I soak it all in. Here are some images from the family session I did in Chino Hills last week. Enjoy.
