Yosemite Family Photography | Yosemite Portrait Photographer

Just sharing more photos from our trip to Yosemite National Park last week. While Yosemite is one of the most beautiful, amazing places on Earth for scenic photography, my main goal was actually to get some great family photos of us.

I can't tell you how much time we spent trying to find some clothes that we all liked for our photos. Knowing that most of the background would be green, we wanted to go with a solid red/maroon that would really compliment the background well, and stand out from all of the green. Thankfully we finally found them. Gavin's shirt...not so plain, but that's the way that we wanted it.

During the first couple of days at Yosemite, we spent a lot of time walking around, and the whole time I was scoping locations, times, sun positioning for the family photos that would be shot later.

So without further adeu, here are some favorites from the first location. ALL of these were shot by Grandma, and all were using an off camera 580EX flash mounted on a tripod, fired by the trusty ST-E2 transmitter. These were shot about an hour before sunset. We are in the shade (lit by the flash) and the background is well lit by late afternoon sun:
