It’s been a month since we have been able to get out and about for a simple visit to the Dana Point Harbor. I love the end-of-day respites with my parents and my kids. Usually we stop what we’re doing around 6:00pm and head to the San Clemente pier or Dana Point Harbor to play in the waves or go on a bike ride. It’s a great family bonding. Sometimes I take my camera and sometimes I don’t. I just had to today because I have been so ill I haven’t been able to shoot and have been jonesin’ for some opportunities to capture my cuties in action.
Whenever I photograph my kids I am always looking to improve my skills as a documentary style photographer. I am not one to pose my kids for shots but I will ask them to redo something they just did so I can line things up better the second time around. I love to get them just doing their thing and not grinning into the lens. I always end up learning something new that I like to try later on a portrait session for a client.
