Ryan and I actually met the Dittenber Family Back in November when we were in the park shooting the Holiday Mini Sessions. Christina loved our styled scene so much she approached Ryan and asked for our information. Her step mom contacted me shortly after and purchased a gift certificate for them for Christmas. Fast forward a few months and we meet the Dittenber Family again, but this time for their own session!
I had been in contact with Christina for weeks leading up to her session talking about locations, style, wardrobe, props etc. and WOW! We love the way it turned out! They wanted to go with a rustic/country style so I sent them a few locations in town and decided on the Murrieta Equestrian Center. We've gotten quite a bit of rain this season so the open fields, which are normally dirt, were covered in luscious natural grass. Perfect backdrop and perfect pop of color for their portraits.
Christina and Mike... thank you for "stalking" us in the park back in November :) You guys are so sweet and little Shyanne was a doll (and a great model too!). I can't wait to work with your family again!
