Boho Chic Can’t Be Beat! | San Diego Photographer

Is there anything better than beachy waves and a little boho chic?  I didn’t think so! Abbey is a hairstylist, so it’s no wonder she rocks those locks! Abbey is such a natural.  I have a feeling she’s not a newbie to modeling.  These are great portfolio builders! Such a cute expression.  And her boho dress in aqua is a fun switch up from white, especially when photographing in the great outdoors. Save

What’s Cookin’, Good Lookin’? | San Diego Headshots

Had a great time photographing Chef Marissa of The Intuitive Kitchen.  We tied in the red and black of her logo with props in the kitchen, and her wardrobe, and it all came together beautifully!  Que magnifique! Personal branding matters – it lends a polished, cohesive look to your website and marketing materials!  And of course, we always want that personality shining through. Save

Rising Star | San Diego Child Model Headshots

Simply.  Clean.  Stunning!  Working with tween or teen models is so fun!  While I work more often with grown-ups and professionals for their business headshots, doing model headshots for children allows for a little more fun and creativity – a touch more artistic flair, if you will. 🙂 True beauty.  I don’t recommend makeup for girls under 15.  A little mascara or a little tinted lip gloss is plenty.  Unless acne is an issue, keep it natural. Those eyes, I tell you!  Blue backgrounds and clothes brought out the blue in her eyes – green brought out the green.  Clothes that enhance the eyes are always a good idea. Love the cute and sassy attitude in this.  Great outfit and a super smile!

sophisticated corporate woman

The Contemporary CEO | San Diego Headshots

Miss B was referred by a friend, and I was delighted to make her acquaintance.  She needed new headshots for some recognition she was getting at work, but had a trip planned out of country in just a few days.  I was lucky to have an opening, and the rest they say, is history! I absolutely love the clean and contemporary elegance and sophistication she exudes.  As a C-level corporate woman, she has such a quiet power that is beautifully captured in the photo above. Of course, it’s usually the close-up headshot that gets used on the company “about us” page.  Done well, it should still command attention, and not be easily passed over. Another confident, friendly, and approachable business headshot.  Of course, you’d like to do business with Miss B! And before we ended, we had to just kick off the shoes, and take a more casual approach, curled up in the chair, with the lovely sweets peas in the background.  This was a photo gifted to her hubby! 😉 Save

Welcome, Little Princess! | San Diego Newborn Photography

O.M.G!  How precious is she?  I don’t think it gets any better than this.  Little Miss E “posed” like a pro with her little princess crown. 🙂 She’s a sweet little bundle – and was already having a good hair day! 😉 The photo above and below are Little Miss E in her strong daddy’s arms.  She’s so dainty in the top photo, holding her hands like that. And is there anything better than cute, squishy, baby wrinkles?  I think not! One parting princess photo.  Sleep little baby – welcome to your loving family. ❤

Branding That Adds Up! | San Diego Headshots

This was not my first time working with Betty.  She’s an accountant, who was ready to refresh her brand and her website with some updated headshots.  So that’s what we did! I do love helping style my clients.  Sometimes I pull together outfits they never would have thought go together, but it all works!  Then sometimes, you get a client who is naturally stylish, and has perfect accessories to go with everything.  That’s this lady!  Look how she pulled together that colorful necklace, which is tied into the other bright colors.  Nice! I love how clean and sophisticated the white-on-white is.  White generally washes out skin tone, BUT, when used strategically, so that everything is white EXCEPT for you, then YOU become the focus of the image.  And isn’t she lovely? And there is never anything wrong with showing that confidence – and a touch of sass! Save

Being Vibrant! | Personal Branding Photography

Meet Nina – she has a loving and vibrant soul, and we had so much fun planning her personal branding photoshoot!  As a relationship and business coach, she helps her clients get past the blocks that are holding them back. So much good vibe action in this shot!  Light and love! 🙂 Crisp and clean, like a new day.  Great way to start the day, week, and year – and work on your goals. Why yes, I will make just about anything a pretty background!  Clients are often surprised when I ask them to stand or sit in front of something mundane, and then they see how I made the photo turn out – what you see is not always what I see! 😉 Such a pretty portrait! What a way to wrap up a photoshoot!  Couldn’t have asked for a prettier sunset.  And this confident billionaire pose is the cherry on top!

outdoor maternity photoshoot

Pretty Mama! | San Diego Child & Family Photographer

I’ve had the distinct honor of being there for this sweet mama’s 3 pregnancies.  This time we hopped out of the studio (I’m mobile now) and stepped into the great outdoors.  Mom let me get a little creative and create a dramatic ‘gown’ for her, too!  Add some sweet light, and voila!  the perfect amount of photo drama for this mama! Love the leading lines of this fence, highlighting Mama L. A beautiful solo maternity photo. But we can’t leave dad out.  These two are the cutest, and so in love! ❤ Or the sweet girls that are growing up sooo fast!  They’re excited to meet their little sister! One last beautiful shot before the sun goes down on another wonderful day!  Congratulations! Save

A Ray of Sunshine! | Personal Branding in San Diego

Kelly truly is a ray of sunshine! She has such a light within, and she naturally shares that with those she meets. Not only was Kelly great to work with during her personal branding photoshoot, but we got to play in her closet before during the styling and wardrobe consultation.  And she’s got some great shoes!  I call them “dinner and a movie” shoes, because I don’t normally wear heels, but I admire from afar – and occasionally photograph them! And that smile!  Such good energy radiating on the photo above and below. Something for a softer side . . . I’m a sucker for a colorful background – especially when it brings out those beautiful blue eyes!  Thanks, Kelly!  It was a pleasure creating your brand with you! Save
