Granddaughter: Ventura Family Portrait Photography

This client wanted photos of her family, but primarily of her granddaughter. Her and her husband traveled down from San Francisco for a visit, and we chose Arroyo Verde park in Ventur for their family photos.

Everyone swore that it would be impossible to get the little girl to smile, as she was a very serious and shy child. It took a lot of work and it was a fleeting moment, but I succeeded. 🙂


Technical details: Mamiya 645AF with 80mm f/2.8 lens, Nikon F100 with 50mm f/1.4 lens, Kodak Portra 400 film. The group shots were lit with an off-camera strobe and umbrella.
