Old Poway Park

The Veihls

Every family session I photograph is very important to me. And, location is a huge part of the planning for a successful family session. Due to the variety of backgrounds available, The Old Poway Park became one of my favorite locations for any session.

I met with the Vehils early in the Morning, in Poway. If clients are available, sometimes morning sessions will work better than afternoon sessions. Specially if there will be children.

They were excited for the session, but a bit concerned about the baby, because he was only five month old. Since I’ve been to the Old Poway Park several times, I knew exactly where to start.

I always enjoy shooting around the old trains. The vintage fell, and the vivid colors make it for a unique background. The Veihls really liked the idea, and we got started  as quick as possible, taking advantage of the great light.

After the trains, we were ready for  the second location: the tracks. It’s always a location that I use when shooting at the Old Poway Park. It always brings good results.

Throughout the entire session, the baby behaved great. In fact, he even enjoyed the walk, and the fuss. 

It was time for a few alone pictures from the baby! Five months old is a difficult age to accomplish it, due to the new things the baby is learning! But, in this case, with the help of the parents, I was successful.

The old Poway Park is a great location for portrait sessions, no matter what kind. Aside from weekends, this location tends to be quite empty, and it’s easy to work around the crowd. During summer, temperature can get quite hot, so an early shoot is a good idea. For more informations about this park, please check the park’s website.
