In Orange County, there are a variety of themes and locations in which you can choose from to hold your personalized portrait session to capture this moment. Some suggestions of areas which are perfect for portraits would be, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and many more beaches. Other prime spots would be Downtown Fullerton, the San Juan Capistrano Mission, and even Union Station. Check out Style Me Pretty for great inspiration and ideas.
These are all nearby and easy to access so you are not limited in this regard. When deciding on an idea for a portrait, the most popular theme of choice, which makes sense in Orange County, is the beach setting. With wonderful beaches plus beautiful water as your backdrop, a beach themed portrait session will surely exemplify you and OC at it’s finest.
Interestingly enough, another popular choice is a city setting portrait. Normally used best for single or couples photographs, these can be modified quite nicely for family and group portraits as well. Local parks are a prime example of this. With the children looking adorable while the backdrop of the city setting a nice contrast to the beautiful nature of a park, is a great choice for a different look. In the end, the choice of scenery will be up to you. Traditional styles are usually the standard but reviewing a photographer’s portfolio should reveal if other options are available. This is again why photographer choice is very important.
