Orange County Family Photographer

The Maeda Family

One of my favorite subjects to photograph are families. Maria contacted me when she was looking for an Orange County family photographer. She found me on a client’s Instagram while looking at a previous session I did in San Clemente. The Maedas travel to San Clemente every year, and it’s their favorite place in the world. They truly enjoy the California lifestyle, and their love for this place is very special. This year, they decided they wanted to do a family shoot, and I’m happy she found me. I was flattered to be chosen their Orange County family photographer.

After postponing the session once due to bad weather, we only had one more day due to their trip schedule. We decided to meet at the pier, no matter what.

First of all, I wanted to start the session at the park, above the pier’s parking lot. Rather than going straight to the beach, I wanted to explore some other backgrounds. In contrast to send and water, the park provided something different.

I also wanted to explore the train tracks, because of its significance for the location they chose. Although it’s not exactly legal, it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass. We timed the Amtrak Train, and, as a result, we were able to get some killer photos of Maria on the tracks.

As the sun got lower, it was time to hit the beach. It’s by far my most used location as an Orange County family photographer. The low tide helped create beautiful images, as the couple walked along the shoreline. At sunset, with perfect lighting, we really had that perfect moment where everything came together.

I would like to thank Maria and her family for having me as their Orange County family photographer, while they visited California.
