Sonora Portraits - Super Bowl Sunday

Sonora Portraits - Abbie

February 7th, 2016

Super bowl is all about family, friends, football, laughter, food, and drinks. The men were in watching the Super Bowl while most the women were either in the kitchen preparing the BIG meal or outside enjoying the beautiful day. You could hear the cheers in the background from the team scoring a touchdown; however, there was a creative explosion happening in my head that I had to release. Abbie and I were discussing her beautiful golden locks and I just had to capture some images that would show off her gorgeousness! There is nothing better than Sonora Portraits, a gorgeous model, and beautiful weather.

Bonnie was the hair and makeup artist, while Abbie was my model.  Here are a few images of what we created:

2015 Year in Review

California Photographer

Man has the year flown by! I am in absolute aw with it being December 31st. As you all know, I started my photography business this year. It has been quite a wild ride, and I am so thankful and blessed to be able to look back and see how far I have come. Thank you all for the support and encouragement throughout the year!

 

I decided that I would start a tradition of posting an end of the year highlight reel. I thought it would be fun to show you all various photos that I have taken throughout the year with the fantastic families, babies, high school seniors, couples, and more!

 

This tradition will also help me reflect on all that I have accomplished. Where I came from and where I am going. I am a creative. It is what I do so putting this together was super fun! As I was creating this slideshow I realized that I produced a pretty cool highlight reel. I added a couple quotes that I love and various behind the scenes photos of different photo shoots.

 

Here is what transpired…

"She has fire in her soul and grace in her heart" - Unknown

Brooke is a force to be reckoned with. She is sweet and passionate yet feisty and rambunctious. Willing to try anything new at least once, I didn't have to convince Brooke to let me take her portraits. As soon as I asked the answer was 'OK! That sounds fun'. I think she was more excited about getting to wear mascara than anything else :)

 

Let me tell you something, Brooke is a natural model. Anything I asked she did perfectly. I didn't have to change her pose at all. It was absolutely amazing. During the session, the sun was just right. We were able to get beautiful and fun shots.

I am always working on gaining knowledge in the photography field. Recently, I have been taking a few photography courses and something that resonated with me was explained by a famous wedding photographer Jasmine Star. She explained that with every photo shoot she is shooting with intention. It sounds like a no brainer, but to be able to shoot with certain words in mind truly helps me as a photographer get the exact pictures I want. While shooting, I want my client to have fun. I shoot with the intention of getting fun, natural, fresh, and editorial photos.  

The course that I have been taking by Jasmine is from a company called Creative Live. It can be found here:

When you take a photograph of someone, you take a portrait of their soul. ― Winna Efendi, Refrain

 

With her golden curly hair and the sun just right this little girl is angelic. Her portraits match her personality to a tee. She is beautiful, sweet, and caring. I truly believe that a portrait needs to show a persons personality. When you see a portrait you should be able to know a little about the person in that picture. Are they sassy, sweet, or outgoing? As the quote above says 'when you take a photograph of someone, you take a portrait of their soul'.

It isn't long before Christmas comes around and everyone is saying 'wow where did the year go'. You know that typical phrase that you hear fairly often throughout the year.  Days pass us by so quickly, but photographs last a lifetime. Don't miss out on capturing your life through photos. Make sure that you capture your life in pictures where you, your babies, and your grand babies will be able to look back on your life and see the beauty. Photographs tell your story.

Mini Portrait Session

Let me just start off with saying that this little girl really knew how to work the camera! She is such a sweetie and I believe that her portraits show her loving personality.

 

These pictures are from a fun mini session I did on Saturday while the sun was going down. These truly are the 'golden hours' of the day. Prior to the photo shoot we created the headband with random flowers, pine branches, and green crafting wire. It was so much fun to make especially letting little Lyla pick her own flower combination.
