The Farquhars (Family Portraits)

Today I met up with Wayne and family at the Coyote Creek trail head in Morgan Hill for their family portrait session. It was a nostalgic trip as I used to live a stone’s throw from where we met, and we couldn’t have chosen a better time of year for the area. Instead of dry fields of brown grass, everything was lush and green from the recent storms. Luckily this sweet family was as adventurous as they were friendly, and followed me through poisoned oak and abandoned buildings alike to get some great shots! Since Wayne is an officer of the law I felt relatively sure we wouldn’t be fined for any mild trespassing we may have been guilty of. Enjoy the photos, I posted my favorites in a slideshow below! All 93 photos from the session can be viewed here.

    Photo of the Day (PotD) – Farquhar Family » GoodEye Photography + Design - […] Why it’s cool & how I got it: There’s a couple things I love about this shot – first, the lighting IMO is perfect. It’s soft and natural, like you’d get in a studio environment – but we’re next to a creek in the woods! The second thing I love is the subjects are totally at ease, comfortable and happy. The pose is interesting, the grass in the foreground and background add depth to the composition – and the quality of light adds some mystery and interest without being distracting. Your eye clearly keeps coming back to the subjects, which all command equal interest, yet the varying heights keeps the photo from looking too linear or structured. Like the natural setting, the composition is natural and organic. Oh, and they’re a great-looking family aren’t they? Click here to see more photos of the Farquhars. […]
