Ticatch Family Session at Santa Ana Art District

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the Ticatch family in the vibrant Santa Ana Art District known for its rich history and colorful street art, Santa Ana offers a unique backdrop for any Blue Sky’s Studio family photoshoot.

Santa Ana District The Perfect Backdrop Setting 

Santa Ana is a fantastic location for family photoshoots, especially for families with energetic boys. The district is filled with beautiful art murals, parks, and plenty of open space for kids to explore and have fun.

The art murals here are particularly stunning, adding a burst of color and creativity to each shot. From abstract designs to detailed portraits, each mural tells a story, making them the perfect backdrop for capturing family memories.

One of the standout murals we used during the Ticatch family shoot was the vibrant “Heart of Santa Ana” mural. This piece features a bold, multicolored heart surrounded by intricate patterns, symbolizing the love and diversity of the community. It provided a beautiful contrast to the family’s black outfits, making them pop against the lively background.

During our shoot, the Ticatch boys were particularly drawn to the interactive elements of the murals and the freedom to roam and have fun. This environment not only made for great photos but also created a memorable experience for the entire family.

This family chose to wear casual, coordinated outfits in black, which worked wonderfully against the vivid murals of Santa Ana. Their simple sneakers added to the casual, comfortable feel of the shoot, allowing them to move freely and enjoy the experience. This choice of attire ensured that their personalities shone through, without any distractions.

Perfect Timing 

We started our session at 9 am, a perfect time for a photoshoot. The morning light was soft and flattering, creating a warm glow that enhanced the colors of the murals and the natural expressions of the family. The early hour also meant that we had the district mostly to ourselves, allowing for uninterrupted shots and spontaneous moments.
