I had the lovely opportunity of doing a Beauty Portrait Session with my friend Kasia. She is originally from Poland but is living in California now. She is so sweet and beautiful–we had a great time!

She brought a bunch of different clothes to change up her look. The location was a garden in Palo Alto–absolutely beautiful garden and great location for a beauty or senior shoot, that’s for sure!

Here’s some of my favorite portraits of Kasia!

My Beautiful Friend

These are some practice shots I took of my friend Didi at a location I spent a LOT of time trying to find…it’s called Bernal Historic Ranch Park.

I was so excited to finally find it! I was doing a senior photo-shoot here and Didi helped me prep. She is such an amazing friend, and an gorgeous model. Thanks Didi!

Sarah’s Senior Photo-shoot

This is a little collage I made from a senior shoot I had with my friend’s daughter, Sarah. I really like making these–I create them in Photoshop. I have been learning more and more how to make collages and storyboards, so you’ll be seeing more things like this as I continue learning.

It was requested of me to only put up a few photos, so here’s a few favorites of mine from her shoot.

Sarah wanted a country-style shoot and I was able to find a great spot in the San Jose foothills. Among the awesome things about this location is a huge white barn and some old farm equipment.

It felt like we were on a farm in the country, but we were actually in the middle of a neighborhood. I searched high and low for it and was so excited to finally find it (this location has definitely been added to my list of great spots for photo-shoots) and we had a great time!

A Mini Photo-shoot With The Hubby

I wanted to get a little practice in, and my husband wanted some more business-like photos for his new business, so we went and had some fun.

It was really close to sun-set when we decided to go out to take some photos, so we drove down past the library close to our house and stopped by a small soccer field where we spotted some nice scenery.

I really enjoyed the lighting…I prefer natural light over using a flash.  It just looks so good.

Some of the best times for getting soft, natural light is about 1-2 hours after sunrise and 1-2 hours before sunset. I like to shoot during those times if I can, but I know that’s not always possible…gotta work with what ya got!

So, here some photos of my sweetie–enjoy!
