This is my third year shooting at this beautiful park, Vasona Park in Los Gatos and it’s such a perfect location for family photo sessions!  it started as super foggy day. I had never shot in fog like that before and I was little nervous how photos would turn out but I LOVE the finished results!  I think fog provides soft beautiful look in background!  The couple brought their dog to include in their holiday photos and it was lot of fun!!!   Some formal and lots of candidate sots of them playing.   So cute!
