My favorite place to photograph is slightly off the beaten path and takes a bit of walking (between 5 and 10 minutes) from where you can park. Unfortunately parking is not allowed on the streets and the police will write tickets. Please be advised that you need to arrive earlier than expected to make it out to the location.
Below is a map that shows two locations to park.
Peters Canyon Upper Lot
8548 E. Canyon View Ave.
Orange, CA 92869 – $3 fee (machine takes credit cards)
Chapman Hills Elementary School
170 Aspen St, Orange, CA 92869
I have found that it works well if the driver drops off at the edge of skylark and the opening of the canyon paths and then parks.This way we can start photographing sibling photos and individual photos of the kids and once the driver makes it back we can start on the family photos.
