Considering how close I live to Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, it's kind of amazing that I'd never shot there before. I've always wanted to, though, so I suggested it to my first clients of the season, and was thrilled when they said yes! The canyon has some great trails for hiking and mountain biking, and, as you can see, for photos. This little guy was super cute--outgoing and full of energy. As a parent and a photographer, I just love getting to see kids exploring and playing, and the natural setting of the canyon preserve was perfect for that.
