Wild Lupine Spring Family Sessions: Chino Hills, California

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.

POP Goes the Color Wall: La Jolla, CA

"Where did you find that amazing color wall", people ask. This gem is located in the beautiful city of La Jolla, California (7596 Eads Ave, La Jolla, CA 92037) to be exact. 

As many of you know, I'm sorta addicted to color. I'm attracted to things that make my eyes LAUGH, and this is definitely one of them.  Me and my sister decided to go on an early morning adventure, traveling the 120 miles from San Bernardino into San Diego county in order to experience the wonderfulness of this wall.  Its randomly placed in the middle of the downtown area, next to a small Ju Jitsu shop. Parking is scarce, but hey, it's San Diego; the weathers always perfect for a short stroll. The story behind this wall is pretty cool too. You can google it, or check it out HERE. 

I wanted to scout this location out for Senior Sessions and Engagement Sessions. It's a drive from my normal area, but with something this fun, its soo worth it.  Of course, we decided to do our own fun photo-shoot to document this awesomeness. We are silly and just goofing around, but check out the photos below if you need a little color in your life today! 

Want to book a session and travel down to this wall with me? Contact me HERE and lets get something on the books!!

Much Love, Beth

Warm Southern California Spring-Family Session

Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, please shine down on me..... 

It's March, and everything is neon green here in sunny SoCal. Between the bouts of rain (which were desperately needed), we had a handful of cool sunshine-filled days. The Fisk family seemed to have brought their own blend of sunshine to their session, as every photo was just bursting with light and a brightness that encompassed their family vibes.  I worked along side Cherie to help her plan and coordinate her families wardrobe to make sure her family photos turned out exactly how she had it in her mind. Her two sweet kids were laughing and playing and reminded me why I adore taking photos.  I not only got to play outside, but I got to connect with some amazing new people and serve them in a way that they will always remember. 

This blue floppy hat was that extra accessory that brought some added dimension to their photos and Cherie's outfit. It also added a little coy somethin-somethin as her and her hubby got close. I am so giggly over how sweet these two are. Looking sharp in that suit too Sir; thumbs up. 

Bow-tie and suspenders are always a go-to for small boys. Pair it with this cuties red hair and you have instant perfection! I know this isn't my kid, but would it be creepy if I hung this photo up in my house? haha. He looks like one of the model's that come in the picture frames you buy from the store..... Too. Cute. For. Words. 

The Fisk's were open to any ideas I had, and were troopers when I had them all lay down in this tall grass. I'm loving this San Dimas location because it really does give me so many options for the different photos I want to take. 

This face say's it all..... Big sister is all love and little brother is clearly "thrilled" with it all. haha. 

Thank you guys for trusting me, I'm loving the way this session turned out. Lots of variety, but most importantly, it exudes YOU. Who you are as a family is evident in all the love I see here. What a blessing. 

 

Like what you see? Want to book a session? Contact me HERE and lets get you set up for a Spring session of your very own! 

Much Love, Beth
