You’ve been talking about it for years, or maybe the idea just hit you this week, but there’s no time like the present to give that most special of women the unique and beautiful gift of family photos this year. No matter the mom – young mom, retired mom, outdoorsy mom, fashion-forward mom – a family photo session will undoubtedly melt her heart every time!
Luckily, here in Orange County, we have access to some of the most beautiful places in America, and one of the best areas to have a gorgeous family photo session is Laguna Niguel. Here are just some of the ideas I have for making your gallery of photos worthy of your wonderful mother, either as a completed set of photos, or as an activity that she will love to take part in.
Niguel Botanical Reserve
This 18-acre reserve is open every day of the week, so making plans to have your family photo session here is easy and flexible. Dozens of walking trails, gardens, and even a beautiful, elegant labyrinth with amazing views await. Any photo session here will be full of color, plants, and that gorgeous California sunshine.
With this stunning beach right next door to Laguna Niguel, it’s hard to pass by as a potential photo spot! Mom would love to dig her toes in the sand while she’s surrounded by her loved ones, making memories to last forever. This would also be a great spot to take wedding or maternity announcement photos to surprise her!
This may share a name with a park in South Dakota, but this Badlands is right here in Laguna Niguel. With stunning views over the Pacific Ocean, this area would make a dramatic background for photos that will impress your mom for years to come.
There are several other noteworthy parks and historical landmarks in the area, so if there’s a place with a special meaning for your mom or your family, let me help you with the plans! I would love to be your professional photographer for this perfect gift for every mom.
