The Harrington Group is a public accounting and consulting firm based in Pasadena and San Francisco. The Harrington Group provides services to over 250 non-profit organizations.

This January, The Harrington Group celebrated the induction of a new partner to their firm. Celebrations were hosted in Pasadena and San Francisco.

The Pasadena event was hosted at the Harrington Group corporate office. The room was full of guests ranging from family, employees and clients. Chabeli Sanchez of P.S. & Associates created a beautiful setting with stunning furniture and draping. Renzo of Renzini Catering provided the most delicious food that was out of this world! Amanda from Rosebud Floral Design provided beautiful table center pieces and as always, knocked the ball out of the park.





















The San Francisco event was hosted at the Cartoon Art Museum. It was an extremely unique location with cartoon artwork hanging in their gallery. Once again, Chabeli of P.S. & Associates did an amazing job creating the vibe for this event.

As a family portraits photographer, I have the honor of creating portraits for a diverse range of families. Some are large and some, very small.

Audrey and Savian are the size of 2. Mother and Son. Nonetheless, the love and bond they have for each other is immense. It's a beautiful thing to see.

Here are a few samples from Audrey and Savian's portrait.

How to Choose the Best Location for My Family Portrait?


As a family portraits photographer, I am asked quite often by clients for suggestions on where is the best location to have a family portrait taken?


My response is always the same, location is very important but in the end, the most important aspect of your portrait should be about showing the emotional relationships and love you have for one another.  


To get an idea of what setting my clients would feel more comfortable in, my first questions back to them are do you prefer an outdoor setting or in studio?  Is your family comfortable in natural areas or do you prefer architectural settings?  Selecting a location for your family or personal photograph is important.  The location you select provides a very personal message about you and your family.  


We were thinking about having our family portrait taken in A studio?
No longer is a studio portrait just for clients with traditional and conservative tastes.  Family portraits in the studio with solid color backgrounds paired with coordinating colored clothing and modern furniture are gaining popularity.  Many of today’s families like to emulate the look and feel of fashion portraits in clothing catalogs.

A studio portrait is traditionally hung above a fireplace, displayed in family rooms and staircases.  A studio portrait is one that is captured only once every few years as there can be a lot involved in deciding about outfits, hair style, backgrounds and such.  


The downside to a studio portrait is that there may not be a variety of poses captured to select from for your final prints due to limited background availability.  It can also be difficult for toddler age children and the reason is that small children love to roam and explore.  Roaming is a very natural thing for toddlers to do.  In a studio setting, the portrait light is fixed and limited to a small space.  There is usually very little to no room for small children to roam.


What are the benefits of having our family portrait taken outdoors?
An outdoor location offers a different appeal from a studio.  Generally an outdoor location offers more versatility.  A family has the flexibility in selecting their portrait to be formal, casual or sometimes even both.  These can be used for mantle prints as well as smaller prints.  The outdoors provides for natural light which has very complementary qualities for facial complexions.

Additional benefits of capturing your portrait outdoors is that you will have more possibilities as far as backgrounds are concerned, usually resulting in a collection of portraits to select from for prints and other memorable products.  Families with toddlers will feel a little more at ease outdoors being that an outdoor environment is stimulating and usually safe to roam.  If your portrait is captured at the right time of day, allowing your toddler to roam may make for beautiful spontaneous portraits of your child.


What are some other possible locations for our family portrait?
Another possible location that is quite often overlooked is in your own home.  Having a family portrait created in your own home adds a very personal touch.  The same family portrait principles apply for your home as they do for a studio or outdoor portrait.  


Some families may select to capture a more formal portrait indoors.  A portrait photographer may bring in external lighting to create a beautifully lit family portrait.  


Recently we created a beautiful outdoor portrait in front of our clients home.  They were so elated to have a personal family memory to hang over their mantle.  




Now just imagine this, days before their portrait, I took a drive by their home at what I thought would be the most perfect time of the day for the most beautiful natural light.  In my mind I framed 4 possible portrait backgrounds for this family of 3.  The results were stunning and they selected a beautiful portrait set in front of a pretty magnolia tree.  I hope that in years to come, they will come to look at their family portrait and it will bring back beautiful memories of that time.  Maybe in the years that come, they’ve moved onto a different home and it reminds them of the great memories they had at their former home.  Maybe they still live in the same home and it makes them realize how much that pretty magnolia tree has grown with their family.  

Either way, portrait’s are meant to bring you beautiful and emotional memories of your precious family.
