Pumpkin Rock is located in Horsetown USA, also known as Norco, CA, Just North of Corona off the 15 freeway It’s a great day Trip! Take the kids on a hike, it is STEEP, so wear hiking boots.

Different. Let yourself be open to move, to create, to move away from what you see everyday in family photos. To Laugh, to experience, and to remember that experincce with the photos. I am so lucky to have clients that break away from the mold, who want photos that are not like their friends, thank you for loving the different.
