About This Portrait Session

When I picked up the phone Christine said she needed to do something different.  I have had the privilege to photograph the Uribe family since it’s inception.  We have all but exhausted Christine's list of locations for her holiday cards.  Luckily we live in Orange County, one of the most beautiful and diverse places in the United States.  We decided on an untraditional portrait location, and I’m so happy we did.  SOCO The OC Mix is a funky modern outdoor shopping center, that offers a great mix of colorful and modern backgrounds all within a 60-second walk.

Bottom Line

When considering your family pictures I highly recommend The OC Mix in Costa Mesa. After your session treat yourself to a specialty coffee drink at Portola Coffee Lab or a homestyle bakery dessert item from Susiecakes.
