The F Family | Santa Clarita Photographer

I have known the F Family since high school.  Now that we both have kids, it’s such an honor to be able to capture their family in the same way that I try to capture mine.  We are so very lucky that our 4 sweet kids will grow up together…two big brothers and two little sisters.

Breaking Radio Silence | Santa Clarita Photographer

To say that my life has been crazy lately would be an understatement.  I’ve been juggling so many things that my blog has fallen down a notch (or two) on my priority list.  That said, I’m happy to present a new post, a session with my son, who I’m having the time of my life watching grow up into a strong, confident little man. ❤

Featured Photo Session Location: Bridgeport Marketplace | Santa Clarita Photographer

This blog post is the third in a Wednesday series about great locations for photo sessions in and around Santa Clarita, CA.

Bridgeport Marketplace
24061 Newhall Ranch Road
Valencia, CA 91355
(Corner of McBean Parkway & Newhall Ranch Road)

Bridgeport Marketplace has a lot to offer for family, child, engagement, headshot, and pretty much any type of natural light portrait photo session you can think of, all at an unlikely location.

Although Bridgeport Marketplace is technically a shopping center (anchored by California Pizza Kitchen and Valley Produce Market) and it is known for it’s duck pond, what often goes unnoticed is the hardscaping and landscaping.  This locations boasts gorgeous, modern fountains, stone planters and walkways landscaped with lush and colorful plants and flowers, and eclectic, colorful buildings and patios with unique wrought iron fences.

The duck pond itself is a great feature, although I prefer to use it only in the time just before sunset when the light hits it just right.  Kids can watch and feed the ducks either on the many benches around the pond or on the boardwalk / bridge with it’s gorgeous old-fashioned street lamps.

Following are many examples of images taken by Cristen Farrell Photography at Bridgeport Marketplace.

The LaMarr Family

It was another hot, steamy Santa Clarita day when the LaMarr Family and I set up for our photography session at the park. In true Los Angeles fashion, the park was packed, despite the heat.  We carefully picked our way through tricycles, scooters, and roller skates and staked our spot. And what a beautiful spot it was…
