Cantu Family Portraits

It was Christmas time in Southern California when Mercedes dropped me an email asking about family portraits. She explained that this Christmas was different from their usual holiday traditions…. it was different because everyone would be there. Her parents (the original Mr. and Mrs. Cantu) would be coming, all her brothers and sisters would be there with their own families. They came from far off places like Germany and Mexico. I read her email and Michael Buble’s “I’ll be Home for Christmas” softly started playing on my Spotify feed, as if on cue. We set a date and place and made it happen! Despite some crazy intense fog that rolled into our originally planned location, we moved to plan B, and took some super fun shots at Jeffrey Park in Irvine. The light of the sunset fell beautifully on their faces, and the warm colors highlighted the autumn leaves surrounding the park. A perfect time of evening for portraits, if I do say so myself. Here’s my absolute favorites from the evening…

Cantu Family, I enjoyed practicing my German and my Spanish with you… and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the evening documenting what a unique and beautiful family you have. Merry Christmas… Frohe Weihnachten…. Feliz Navidad!
