McCully Family Portraits - Angel's Stadium

I was asked if I would be interested in shooting a family portrait session for a friend in Angel's Stadium.  Now I wouldn't be shooting my friend and her family, which I've shot earlier in the year, but a friend of hers.
 
She continued to tell me their neighbors have a 14 year old son who has stage 4 rhabdosarcoma, a super rare cancer, and she wanted to do something nice for them, such as a nice family portrait, which is where I come in.
 
For me this would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to have access to Angel's Stadium for portraits, but on the other had an opportunity to do something nice for a family who has got to be going through a very rough time in their lives.
 
It was overcast and raining two days prior to our scheduled shoot, but the morning of the shoot looked to be a beautiful day.  I got to the stadium early and thought I'd take advantage of the extra time to take some shots of the stadium's entrance.
 
It was my pleasure and honor to photograph the McCully family.  Here you'll find some of my favorites from the shoot.
