Carlsbad Photography with The Handerson Family

It’s always awesome to explore my own city during family portrait sessions. And, the Hendersonsgave me a good reason to do so during their Carlsbad photography session.

They contacted me requesting information about a family portrait session, but they had a special request. They were all only going to be together for one Sunday morning. And the Carlsbad photography session had to happen then.

I’m always ready to accommodate my clients necessities, so it was no problem for me. I was up and ready to go on the Sunday morning, and we schedule it for 8 am. After looking into many ideas I sent them, the Hendersons were set on a place I was not familiar: The Hosp Grove park.

I took the time to drive to the park, and check the location prior to the shoot day. It was a little tricky due to some characteristics of the park, but I could definitely make it work.

I don’t limit the number of family members for family portrait sessions. But, this Carlsbad photography session was the largest family I’ve ever worked with. They needed multiple cars to get to the park, so we started with the part that was ready. As family arrived and got ready, we added them to the bunch. Everyone was having a great time, and the session went as smoothly as I could hope.

My favorite part, was when I photographed all the children together, on a log. For the smaller ones, I had their dads hold their backs up, for safety as well as looks. It got us all laughing, and it was a good break from all the logistics we were having to think about. 

After some planning, we were able to accomplish everything we wanted. For large family groups, it’s important to divide them in smaller groups as well
