This San Diego senior had such an upbeat, positive spirit and I was honored to be chosen to take her senior portraits. Natalie will be joining her older sister at a college in her former home state of Utah in the fall.
A few days before Valentine’s Day, I ventured out to Carlsbad for a senior portrait session with Sammy. His mother contacted me about the session and mentioned that she knows of a mural that could make a cool backdrop for her son — she was right! The multi-colored tiger mural on Carlsbad Boulevard called “Catnap” was created by Michael Summers as part of the 2013 Mural Project. The brightly-colored backdrop worked perfectly with Sammy’s red tee and electric guitar.
After taking a few portraits at the mural, me, Sammy and his mom, Annette, chased the sun down near the beach before finding the perfect set of dark gray stairs for Sammy and his guitar.
I had a great time with you both, and Sammy, I’m wishing you all the best for your senior year and beyond!
