Because I Never Print at CVS | Irvine Family Photographer

If you've ever had a photos taken with me before you will know that I am a crazy lady when it comes to getting your photos printed off with a high quality printing lab. I spend way more time than I will ever admit on editing my pictures to perfection (or at least my version of it!) I make sure that all the numbers are correct, the warmth right on, the skin tone glowing. And when I hear that someone went and took my hours of work to a chain store like CVS I cry big tears on the inside. Who you go through to print your photos will make sooooo much of a difference. If you're all for the dark and muddy, green skin toned look then Costco is your pall. ;-) But when it comes to hanging your art work on your walls, please do it good. :-) 

And that is why on this evening we were on our way to Costco to pick up a picture (insert a hide myself in the closet emoji here!). I found out just that week that my son's teacher needed a family photo for him to bring to school. Fast forward to the day before and I realize we don't have a single family photo of us printed off! Sure I have a million and one other different combinations, just nothing recent with all four of us in the same frame. And so I threw all my conviction to the wind and embarked on my same day pick up adventure. On our over we drove right past this gorgeous trail and went to explore for a few minutes. I hadn't been here since this spring when everything was wrapped in Colorado greens, and honestly I thought I wasn't going to like it. But oh what golden hour can do to brown fields!
