The Petries are such an awesome family… full of fun, lots of love, and loads of personality! I always have such a great time on our shoots together – so much so that this year I brought along two of my best helpers to join in the fun! (see last picture to see what I mean!).
We did this shoot at the Camp in Costa Mesa. If you haven’t been there, it’s an awesome (but very small) outdoor shopping mall with independent shops and restaurants. The backdrops and walls are filled with woods, metals, and lots of environmentally-inspired materials. It was the perfect backdrop for this family and the shoot turned out exactly as I had hoped.
As it turned out, some of my favorite shots were at the end of the shoot in the parking lot where everyone got to pick out which parking spot saying fit them the best!
Thanks so much Petrie family!
