Props and Pets can be SO much fun!!

I often encourage my clients to bring props to their Portrait Sessions, especially things that are important to them. It was SO much fun photographing these girls with their dolls. It was a lot of fun for them too – and a perfect age to capture the special joy they share with their dolls!!

And if you have pets, a custom Portrait Session like this can include your furry family members as well! Double the fun!!

A Surprise for Dad or (Mom)!

Portrait Sessions as Birthday Gifts!

Portrait Sessions are great gifts for moms and dads, and the significant other in your life. Like looking like a superhero? One of my clients was just that — when she planned an entire Photo Shoot of her two kids, selected the products, had a canvas made for her husband’s office, and presented it to him on his birthday! As a Surprise!!

I love it when my clients plan a Portrait Session as a surprise! What a great birthday gift!! And then she sent me this awesome testimonial: (which makes her even more of a superhero…)

“The photographs look wonderful! My husband said the one of Justin leaning on the post is one of the best pictures of him ever. He really was positively present, happy and relaxed for that shoot and that never happens. Thanks again for the lovely session.”

Engagement Session at a Winery in Livermore

When my clients approached me to do their Engagement Session at a Winery, I was super-excited! I scouted wineries in Livermore to find the perfect setting for their Session. Romantic and relaxed, it was exactly the experience they were looking for!

And the Dog

They also wanted to have their dog included in some of the pictures, so we headed to a park nearby afterwards for portraits with their beloved four-legged furry pet – Barney. I often incorporate different locations to give my clients the custom session and experience they are looking for.
