Beach Photo Sessions | Personal Favorites | Windansea Beach, La Jolla Photo Session | Solana Beach Photographer

I have favorite portraits from each session I that really stand out to me and that I’m particularly proud of. It could be the subject’s expression, the pose, lighting, or overall feeling that speaks to me. I like to keep a folder on my computer cataloging these personal favorites of mine to look back on for inspiration or ideas before a new session.

This is one of those images, photographed at Windansea Beach in La Jolla. I love the golden light, her soft expression, tight crop and pose. This gorgeous senior’s personality really shines through in this portrait; she was so sweet and demure:)

Personalize Your Senior Portraits | San Diego Senior Portrait Photography | Windansea Beach, La Jolla

One of the best parts of getting professional portraits taken is the opportunity to capture who you are, and what you’re interested in. Senior portraits are unique in this way; I love when my senior clients bring personal items to their session to make the portraits their own.

D brought his surfboard to his Windansea Beach senior session… and I love the pop of color it adds to the portrait. This portrait feels very natural, and very him. It turned out to be his favorite photo of the session!
