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!
