Is family portrait is one of my recent favorites. I particularly enjoy how everyone in the photograph is having a great time, enjoying my humor as I include them in this photograph. Family photos like these are rarely so fun, spontaneous, and natural. Whenever I photograph families on location, I typically prefer a garden setting like the one you see here. This photograph was taken at the South Coast Botanic Garden, but local gardens where I typically work include the Los Angeles Arboretum, Descanso Gardens, and the Huntington Library. All those locations require additional fees for portraits, but they are some of the best portrait locations available in the Los Angeles area.
