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.
Flashback to when my daughter turned 2. They say the days are long but the years are short; so very true. I can’t believe she’ll be 4 in the fall and starting preschool!
Every day I take a walk with my kids around neighborhood. It’s a great way to break up the day and there are always new things to discover. Yesterday we found 7 monarch caterpillars chomping on a milkweed plant, their colorful stripes standing out among the half eaten leaves. We know where all the spots are to find the neighborhood kitties; which ones are mean and which ones will let us pet them. All in all, it’s always a fun little outing. Yesterday Genevieve found this odd looking seed “stalk” that had fallen from a tree. As I studied it, I realized that nature could only manufacture something so beautiful. That’s when I started thinking that no matter how nasty and horrible the current events of the world seem, you can still always find beauty in the world.
These business portrait head shots were recently photographed at Windansea Beach in La Jolla. Also known as my favorite (and many other photographer’s favorite) beach to shoot at in San Diego county. These were actually photographed in the early morning; a good alternative for business professionals during the week.
Packages for head shots start at $95 and includes one retouched digital image. Contact me using the link above for more information and to schedule a session. Dates are filling up fast with the holidays around the corner!
Mini sessions are great to capture baby’s milestones throughout their first year. Little ones grow so fast during their first year; and yes, we capture tons of photos on our smart phones, but nothing is like a formal portrait session by a professional photographer! Mini sessions are no-fuss shortened versions of a full portrait session. Perfect for every three months (or how often you choose) during year 1! I love ending the series at 1 year with a cake smash mini session 🙂
I photographed this little doll at just a couple months old, and recently again at 7 months. How adorable is she? The perfect model. That’s the great thing about mini sessions for babies as well… they are short and sweet and they enjoy themselves too!
Mini sessions are offered a la cart. They are 20 minutes for $79, which includes 1 retouched digital image. Most clients will then add digital images to their order for $29 a piece.
Mini sessions are scheduled at locations in Del Mar, Solana Beach and Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Contact Michele Hans Photography for more information or to book a session!
