The bulk of my photography is focused on high school seniors and teen girls, but every now and then I break out of that and do a family session. Especially when it’s for the family of a high school client, like this session! I had photographed Francesca a couple of times, so when her mom asked about family portraits I was more than happy for the opportunity to work with them again! With her son going away to college, she wanted some pictures of the three of them together to bring back memories of their summer, and we decided to do them by Folsom Lake in Granite Bay because of the pretty scenery and yummy evening light. What we didn’t plan on was a giant windstorm that seemed to hit us from every angle, which made hair, sand and skirts fly in every direction! But in the end it just added to the fun and laughs, and made for a fun and carefree session for these three.
Here are some of their favorites from the shoot!
