San Diego Senior Portraits: Balboa Park

Meet Camerynn. She loves art and will be going to college in San Fransisco in the Fall. We met at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park with Camerynn’s mom on Mother’s Day. This San Diego senior has such a sweet personality and I know she’ll do great next school year.

Photo Adventures in La Jolla

This year, I have been blessed to be able to photograph several repeat clients. This means so much to me, not only because by booking a session with me again, they are saying they enjoyed their previous experience, but it also allows me a chance to catch up with them and see what’s new in their lives.

I met Ms. Rhonda last year while she was vacationing in La Jolla. We spent nearly three hours together exploring the Cove and some of downtown. She said she would be back this year, and I was thrilled when she let me know her dates. This year, we had rain and we kept pushing back our session. We finally decided to just do it, and Ms. Rhonda came  and I both came armed with umbrellas to incorporate into the session.

I had so much fun, and can’t wait until your next yearly trip to San Diego!

San Diego Child Portraits with Avari

Meet Avari. She is a lively 7-year-old with seemingly unlimited energy and an ability to make everyone around her smile. I met Avari and her mom, Aimee, at Balboa Park to take some updated portraits of Avari, who has done pageants and is trying to get into modeling.

I know you will be great at whatever you put your mind to, and can’t wait until we have the opportunity to work together again!

San Diego Headshots with Jacqueline

Jacqueline and I met this summer when I photographed her beach wedding at Windansea Beach. I was excited when she contacted me again in November needing headshots because she and Alexander are such a great couple that I was happy to have a chance to see them again. We met at Balboa Park and worked with my makeshift studio.

Balboa Park Bar Mitzvah Portraits

I met this upbeat young man on a weekday afternoon at Balboa Park. An infectious grin was plastered on his face and the park was the perfect place to showcase his energetic personality.

Thank you for allowing me to share in this special moment in your life, and I wish you all the best as you prepare for your Bar Mitzvah.

Imperial Beach Portraits with the Martin Family

I met Alexia while she was working as the director of a preschool where I shot portraits. This was a two-day shoot followed by a two-day portrait selection day. Alexia and her staff were so great in helping with the parents that I wanted to do something to show my gratitude. Alexia said she hasn’t had an professional portraits of her family since her daughter was born and she and her family were preparing to move from Imperial Beach to Fort Wayne, Indiana.

We mused at the irony that I grew up in Fort Wayne when we met for a mini session on a gray Saturday morning. Martin family, I hope you had a wonderful cross country trip and have settled into your new home!

San Diego Maternity Portraits with Seneca

I met with this adorable mama and her equally adorable daughter on a gray Monday morning at Balboa Park. Seneca, who works as a hairdresser, is 7-months pregnant with her second little girl. For her mini maternity session, she wanted bright, bold colors to compliment her vibrant sea foam green and hot pink dress, so I suggested the Spanish Village at Balboa Park.

Little Ms. B did such an awesome job and Seneca just glowed the entire session. Best of luck to this family as they prepare to welcome a new addition!

La Jolla Headshots with Kyle G.

Kyle and I met for a headshot session at La Jolla Cove one a weekday in May. I was excited to learn that Kyle, a San Diego investment specialist, is also from Michigan.

We made the most of our session by switching backgrounds with each outfit change and I think we got a great collection of both professional and personal images.
