January, being the first month of the new year, is associated with new beginnings. It's the month that we begin carrying out our New Year's Resolutions. Whether it's a new routine, new diet, or renewed attitude, January is all about fresh starts. But for people like Alma, January is also a time memorialize a new year together as a family. Together with her husband and two year old son (both named Victor), she asked Austen Hunter to capture her family photographs.
Alma's young son, Victor, had just turned 2 years old not too long ago. Knowing just how fast they grow up, she decided it was time to capture this milestone moment for the family photo album. After a quick telephone conversation, we decided on the Frank G. Bonelli regional park for her family photoshoot.
Bonelli Park is a large county park in Los Angeles near San Dimas. It's known for it's serene lake and provides a variety of recreation options for it's visitors. There's fishing, boating, and picnicking opportunities, and it's also right next to Raging Waters. It truly offers something for everyone, Because of it's tranquil lake and variety of greenery, it also has many scenic areas that are perfect for a photoshoot. I was excited to shoot at Bonelli Park because I had never done a session there before, and also because parks like Bonelli are a great place for natural, beautiful family photographs.
We arrived shortly after 2PM, and I scouted out a few locales for the shoot. It was a nice day without a cloud in the sky, but the sunlight was a little harsh so we took care to shoot in the shade. The session lasted just over an hour, but we all had a great time and the images turned out great. Take a look:
Perhaps you too, have been considering bringing the family together for a shoot. Well, I hope these stunning images from Alma's family photoshoot inspire you to make it happen, and I'm here to ensure that your family is flatteringly captured. Let's ring in 2020 with an easy resolution to keep: that we'll update the family photo album! Let's get in touch to discuss your shoot!
