Murrieta Family Photographer | Nunez Family

This shoot had to be rescheduled a few times.  I couldn’t wait to do it  - we had all these cool plans for these backlit sunny shots (setting up quilts with tea partys and etc)..when the day came around it was pretty dark and dismal :(  We decided that if the rain held off, we would shoot anyway.  It is little Desiree Rose’s 1 year old birthday on Sunday and we wanted pictures for her party!


The sun never came out and it was COLD!  It was really challenging for me because shooting in low light is hard – especially because I am NOT a fan of flash photography – it just doesn’t seem real to me…so I tried to manipulate my camera to shoot in the low light.  Kids really need to be at a shutter speed of at least  1/250  to freeze their wiggles….I really couldn’t go that fast or there wouldn’t be enough light! 


As it turned out – it was completely different than we planned but I LOVE it –  We LOVED their coats (I want to go get Robert the coat the Daddy is wearing!) and their sweaters – I just love this park and I ADORE this family!!!  


All that to say - I LOVE how the shoot came out looking wintery. 


Oh AND they brought the coolest bouquet of pink balloons for Desi….I clipped them to a box – there really wasn’t any wind – a gust came up and they flew away!!!  Last time I tried to have balloons at a shoot, I opened the back of the car and they blew out in lightening speed!  If you want me to shot your photos with balloons, please do NOT entrust them to me!!! :)


Please let me know what you think!  As I am so used to bright sunshine, this is a new one for me!  You can leave a comment at the end….


Love this first one….I turned it to black and white to match the last picture on this post….Nunez_007 brooklyn

Cutest kids!!!!  Aren’t their jackets cute?  I asked them to not take them off!   I love how these all turned out….Such an amazing and beautiful family.  I LOVED hearing their testimonies of how they came to Christ.  They are an incredible couple and the Lord shines through them and made up for the hiding sunshine!

This little guy was hilarious – he was ALL boy!!  While I shot the parents he was running all over behind them – it was cracking me up!  Little Desi wanted her Mommy so we shot quickly while she walked over!

here’s a picture with a flash – it’s cute :)  I guess I am not a huge fan of flash because you can get this with a point and shoot camera – but I thought this was super cute!

My favorite from an artsy standpoint.  Desi is eating a cupcake….her mommy looks Beautiful…This was shot with a super high ISO (4000) at 1.6 aperature and 1/60 shutter  – it was pretty dark at this point…makes for an awesome black and white – it was pretty in color too but I loved it in BW.
