I just had the pleasure of taking this family’s portraits again a couple of days ago… This session was my first of several with them a couple of years ago, at the Mission San Juan Capistrano, and I thought for sure I had posted this session to my blog, but apparently I was between blogs at the time, and I was going to send a link to another family who is interested in perhaps doing their portraits at the mission as a reference. But the post was nowhere to be found. So this is far from a sneak peek, but I always say, “better late than never.” So the purpose of this post is not only to showcase the lovely Erickson family, but also to share what a fun location the Mission is to take portraits at! I love the architecture, the beautiful gardens, the light, the history, everything… Besides which there are more times of the day that the light is good for shooting at, thanks to the shade provided by the buildings. The only downside is that a reservation is required and there is a $50 shooting fee. But I find that it is well worth it. Enjoy these pics of the Erickson family – hopefully we’ll be seeing more of them very soon here on this blog!
