Mia Class of 2017 High School Senior Session with Guitar

In Mia’s second shoot, we focus on her guitar. She has been taking guitar lessons at school during her senior year. Practices daily and has gotten so good.

I had this planned out before hand so it could be really quick. DSC_7347DSC_7421DSC_7428I found this building that was so colorful and perfect for the guitar images. DSC_7371DSC_7383 croppedDSC_7435DSC_7442After taking guitar images, I switched  Mia over to a dress that she wore for homecoming party during her junior year.

Family Portraits at the San Juan Capistrano Mission

I have many returning families coming back year after year for family portraits. Robert, Lisa and their two children Jack and Kate, I have photographed at the beach, park, urban but never at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. Which is always one of my favorite places for the incredible architecture. 024Jack is now taller than his Mom!!!

Home for the Holidays! Family Portraits

Here is this wonderful family that I have photographed at the beach, park, city hall (Pasadena) and finally in their beautiful craftsman home. Which is great to captured their lifestyle. This year they adopted a rescue dog, name Pete. Who is adored and loved by all especially Erin. She just beams when looking at Pete.  006005 004Such a cute sweater dress on Erin. Jack is ten years older than Erin so I always have to pose them in ways that you do not see the huge height difference between the two of them. 041adsc_5292-fill-lightErin has a dream bedroom with shades of pink!!!020034029

Tracy – High School Senior – Laguna Beach

When I met with Tracy, I learned that she had a love for writing and skateboarding & she wanted me to photograph her in Laguna Beach. After seeing Tracy’s skateboard, I wanted to incorporate that in the shoot. I suggested besides the beach we shoot in the urban area of Laguna. We did the beach and the village in Laguna Beach. It was a beautiful day and we captured images that Tracy and her family loved.017Tracy collage #1020Earlier in the shoot, I saw that Tracy had these cool aviator glasses and I had to use them.
