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!

Classic Black and White Portraits | Senior Outdoor Beach Session | San Diego Photography | Windansea Beach, La Jolla

Deciding on whether an image should be black and white is the photographer’s artistic decision. Some portraits are better suited for black and white than others; and I choose which ones to make black and white during the editing process. I provide my clients with both the black and white and the color version, and depending on their personal preferences they can choose which image they like better.

I think this image is a great example on how black and white can make a portrait stronger. It is a tightly cropped portrait with a relaxed and more thoughtful expression, rather than a big smile.  I love the way she is looking into the camera; the eyes are the main focus of the portrait.
