I met the Shannon family at one of my favorite tree covered locations out in Thousand Oaks. The Conejo Valley Botanical Garden has a variety of places perfect or family photos on the path. Dressed in holiday colors and against the green trees, these photos are full of color! We even tried to get some of the orange fall tones we saw in a few of the trees.
I had so much fun with the Shannon family. We chatted about halloween, dance and life as we walked around the garden. The kids were full of energy and excited to have their photos taken. They listened well and had fun!
One of my favorite places at the garden is the giant tree on top of the hill. It’s perfect for photos are for climbing! The kids all had fun exploring the area and doing what kids do.
Every fall when we head out to have our own family portraits taken, I remind the kids that these are my birthday gift (my birthday is in September). Julie’s birthday was the day after the session, so it truly was a birthday gift for her to have these photos. The whole family did their best to have great attitudes, have fun and get these beautiful portraits for mom!
Thank you for letting me capture these for you. You were so much fun to get to know! Julie, I hope you had an amazing birthday and that these photos are everything you hoped for. I can’t wait to photograph your family again in the future.
