Arroyo Mocho Trail Family Photos

As a Livermore photographer, I love doing sessions that are right here in town. I love finding new beautiful places even just 10 minutes away from home. The Arroyo Mocho Trail has become one of my favorite spots to take photos. Alex and I used to walk this trail when we were dating, and we call it the “Livermore Arboretum”. I had no idea back then that I would have the opportunity to walk, bike, and take photos on this path as often as I do.

I first met Khouanchy during a Sunday morning class at church. We talked for maybe 5 minutes after the class was over. Josh came over with their daughter, ready to leave. She said, “Let me get your phone number and we’ll get together sometime!” I thought to myself, “Huh, that’s different…we’ve barely talked at all and she wants to hang out?” But I’m not one to turn down potential new friends, so of course I gave her my number, and I’m so glad I did! I have loved getting to know Khouanchy and her family. And of course I always look forward to getting together for some milk tea or a Joann’s run!

Khouanchay and Josh have two beautiful children who LOVE to run around. We spent this family photo session picking up rocks and throwing them into the river, wading through fields of dry grass, and getting pricklies on our feet. And of course making funny faces and sounds, saying “CHEEEEEESE” every 5 minutes. 🙂

The lighting was just perfect during this session, and I think you’ll see what I mean when you look at these photos. Enjoy looking at this fun family session on the Arroyo Mocho!
