A family gathered together from three states to celebrate the Holidays, a beautiful wintry Nor Cal day, and some afternoon golden glow created the most stunning images for this family photo shoot. These people are beautiful too! Juan and Carmen have the most good looking (and tallest) five children ever. Side note: As photographers we always want to shoot down on our clients, never up! Some of these kids are 6’4! So picture me climbing on nearby rocks and balancing on ledges to get the best angles. Thankfully, they trusted it was all for the sake of better images! And truthfully, I doubt any one of them could look un-photogenic, regardless of the angle.
There is more beauty even on the inside. Each of these children are top students and athletes in their respective colleges and high school. They have broken school records, won scholarships for sports and will no doubt go on to do amazing things in their fields of study! Lito (Miguel Angel), the oldest of the five, also spent four years in the marine corps serving two tours in Iraq, all before the age of 21! These kids!!
I was honored that they trusted me to take their images for this very special family photo shoot!
