It is always a good idea to update your head shot yearly with a professional portrait. Whether you are a recruiter using LinkedIn frequently, a writer, a realtor or really anyone who has an online presence, this portrait is usually someone’s first impression of you. Best to put your best face forward and hire a professional (ahem) to get you looking your best. This is a recent head shot portrait I took; she’s a kind and gorgeous woman who is getting back into the workforce after dedicating her life to raising her kids. I love the way how this portrait shows her personality while looking professional and refined. I’d hire her!
So happy for my friend who had her third child recently. Pregnancy and childbirth is such a beautiful miracle, and I love documenting pregnancy for my gorgeous clients. These were taken about a week before her sweet baby girl arrived! She’ll now always have these photos to look back on as a reminder how amazing her body is and how sweet it was to grow her babies 😉
I’ve been busy with some wonderful portrait sessions this fall. This weather has been amazing. Being a photographer in San Diego means I can shoot outdoor session year round! So, I’ve finally locked down two dates for holiday mini sessions. This year I’ll be photographing the mini sessions at Fletcher’s Cove in Solana Beach. It is a great local beach with big cliffs and beautiful stretching coastlines. The sessions will be 20 minutes and also includes 10-15 proofs in an online gallery. You will also receive 3 retouched, full-resolution images to print or use as Christmas cards. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and to book your session!
I was drawn to the texture of this tree trunk. All the tiny crevasses; high and low points joined together in darkness and light. When viewed as a macro image, it looks like it could be a birds-eyed view of some earthen landscape. That’s what I love about macro photography: the very minuscule and small becomes big and grand again.
I shot this beauty recently at Windansea Beach. It was so cool photographing a senior from a completely different state! Her family visits Solana Beach every year and they thought it would be a great time for her to get her senior portraits done (I thought so too!) I loved showing them a beach they have never been to before. Kelsey completely styled herself and did her own makeup, and she looked gorgeous! Here’s a sneak peek into some of her favorite portraits from the session.
