I love a good cloudy day! It's not often that we get to encounter such splendor here in Palm Springs, so when it happens, I can expect a real treat. For a photographer, a cloudy day means soft, even lighting. No matter which direction we turn, the colors and shadows (or lack thereof) is always the same. That makes for awesome candid images too, especially with little children who want to just run and play and be themselves.
The Lobe Family hired me to capture some images for their walls. Here you'll see exactly what goes into an extended family photo shoot, with variations of poses that include everyone in the family and then some candid, in-between shots. This session took place in their community of Terra Lago in Indio, which has a few really beautiful bridges and lakes throughout the property. They all gathered together over the holidays, which sometimes is a rare event to have everyone present. I love family photo sessions like these. Everyone is in a good mood, the kids are happy to play together and they get to create those lovely memories that we remembered having as kids.
Thank you to the Lobe family for having me document these treasures. They have a beautiful family!!
