A Summer’s Tale: Folsom Family Portraits for The Schultz Family



As the golden hues of summer sunshine caressed the serene expanse of water at Beaks Bight in Folsom, it painted the perfect backdrop for capturing precious moments. The Schultz family decided to frame these fleeting memories forever with a family portrait session that epitomized the warmth and joy of the season.

The Essence of Family, Embraced by Nature

Beaks Bight, known for its breathtaking vistas and tranquil atmosphere, served as the ideal location for the Schultz’s family portraits. The family of four, with their two vibrant daughters, shared laughter and love as they strolled along the winding paths. The children’s playful spirits were on full display, with images capturing their impromptu dance moves and joyful frolic through the tall grass.

A Symphony of Color

The family’s carefully chosen outfits mirrored the natural palette of the environment. Soft blues, warm tones, and olive green combined perfectly with the neutral colors of the landscape creating a seamless blend of nature and attire. Each family member shined as an individual, yet together they wove a cohesive tapestry that spoke of unity and belonging. From candid moments of the children playing to the structured alignment of a traditional pose, every picture captured was infused with the family’s genuine affection for one another.

The Golden Hour – When Magic Happens

The magic elevated to a crescendo as the session moved into the late afternoon, often referred to as the “golden hour” by photographers. The soft, warm light wrapped around the Schultz family, casting an ethereal glow and creating striking imagery. Their smiles became a symbol of their bond and the collective strength that radiates from their close-knit ties.

A Portrait to Last a Lifetime

As the day drew to a close, and the last photograph was snapped, it was evident that these summer family portraits at Beaks Bight would be etched in time. The Schultz family had truly captured the essence of the season – the vibrancy, the warmth, and the unspoken promise of unforgettable memories that would linger for generations to come.

They say pictures speak a thousand words, and as the sun dipped below the horizon, the Schultz family held onto the laughter, the quiet whispers, and the soft echoes of a summer day that would be remembered each time they glanced at their beautiful portraits.
