senior portraits are much better than when i was in school!! unlike when i was a senior and we were made to go to a photographer’s studio and sit on an uncomfortable stool in front of a mottled blue/grey backdrop with the photographer telling us to lift our chin a quarter of an inch and turn to the left half an inch and then put us in ever more uncomfortable positions and after all that, to ‘smile big.’ that was our experience and it was invariably awful, with the photos to prove it! these days, juniors are encouraged to show […]
About 10 years ago I photographed a fun family who were staying at the beach on vacation. We all had a great time and they ended up with some really great photographs! Fast forward to two weeks ago when I received an email from the same family saying they were coming to San Diego for vacation and wanted me to photograph them again!!

there is a new category of photography that is popping up called ‘Lifestyle Photography’ and is all about showing people going about their lives, perhaps working in an unusual place. i recently had such a photo shoot and we walked all around downtown Laguna Beach for hours 🙂 i believe these photographs will be used on my client’s Website, but could be used in a multitude of ways! if you find yourself in need of such photographs, please call me, i’d love to walk around town or the beach, etc and photograph you in YOUR element!
