Sometimes I find great photo shoot locations just by chance. Last week, I was in Mountain View running an errand and happened to drive by Cuesta park. What a sight! First, the fall colors were so bright. And it was huge with two separate parking lots on either ends. I literally stopped, U-turned, and came back to it to take photos. And then I emailed my client Bridget if we could please change our mini session location to Cuesta park! Luckily she was willing to give it a try despite the distance. Bridget, her adorable 6 year old ballerina (she is going to be in The Nutcracker!) & daddy were just great to work with because they were so natural. They picked up ginko leaves, walked across wet grass to find the next nice tree, gave each other kisses (regular & Eskimo!) and even jumped down from a bench!
