The Martinez Family [Hillcrest Park Family Portraits]



I had the pleasure of photographing this family session a couple of weeks ago, and thought it'd be a fun share to kick off the blog for 2013. Bibi and her family were referred to me by another client (thanks, Alejandra!), and we'd been trying our best to schedule a session prior to the holidays, but the weather and calendar just weren't cooperating.  Booo!  I'm so glad we finally had the chance to connect, all of us meeting one late Sunday afternoon at Hillcrest Park in Fullerton.

If we live by the mantra of "show, don't tell", the bats, balls, and gloves in these photographs should clue you in as to what brothers Andrew and Brandon love most.   (Hint: it ain't fly fishing!)   I'm so glad we were able to capture their passion for baseball during this shoot.  After all, as a kid, would you rather pose solely for formal portraits for an hour, or swing your bat and play a game of catch?  I always love mixing traditional portraits with in-the-moment-shooting-from-the hip on all shoots.  We did loose one ball into the ravine below, but hey, that's the sacrifice for art.

Bibi and Dominic, thank you again for connecting with me.  I hope everything went well at the game after the shoot.  Your energy is boundless.

Blog visitors -- looking forward to weddings on the near horizon!
