Ventura County Family Photographer

I’ve been photographing families of all sorts and sizes for many years here in Ventura County. I’ve done families as small as two and as large as 60. I’ve done them at beaches, parks, open spaces, barns, ranches, bridges, back yards, historic spots… to me it comes down to just three things:

Lighting
Background
Pose/expression

Most important is the lighting. I like nice, even lighting. The main reason you’re getting family photos done is to showcase everyone together. You want to see their faces hopefully get a background that isn’t too distracting. A lot of the time the biggest obstacle is getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time. MIRACLE if they’re all actually smiling too.

I’ve done close to 40 different families and with the holidays around the corner I’m sure I’ll have plenty more.

Monique Gonzalez - Hello I am wanting to know if you had an opening for February 22 or 23 just a single session for couples. There is no occasion just want portraits for memory. I am flying down to visit my boyfriend in Ventura and, I wanted to know pricing. I am only going to be in ventura for that weekend so I won’t be able to do it another time. I know it is short notice however, I look forward to working something out. Thank you!
