Steve P. 2017 Senior Photo Session in Aptos

We headed up to the beach and took Steve’s senior pictures.  This Bellarmine senior was an easy subject since I know him pretty well.  It was a bit overcast, but that didn’t stop us.  We found several scenic spots to take the photos.  I especially love the ones over-looking the beach where is gazing out over the ocean.  Then we found some train tracks, and I LOVE train tracks.  So, of course, we had to stop and take some shots there.  Thankfully, no train came.  We had a ball!  Thank you, Steve, for letting me take your senior pictures.  Here’s to a fantastic senior year.

Boys All Around!

This family of 6 was so much fun to, uh, capture.  Imagine lots of testosterone, antsy boys who didn’t want to stand still and the littlest one who kept giving me the biggest boo-boo face because he stepped on a thorn.

Ouch!

But no worries, they all were sweet as can be.  I found this great wooden wall and lined up the boys, and BOOM! A rustic background for everyone to line up against, which helped them stand still for maybe 5 minutes.

Score!!

Honestly, this shoot was very memorable and A LOT of fun!  Thanks Lisa & family!

The littlest brother couldn’t stand still (and you shouldn’t be expected to when you are 4 years old.)  However, I needed to get at least one shot with them all together, not moving, so I could get them all in focus.  I was running out of options (and time.)  So I had them all line up against this awesomely weathered barn wall.  Boom, I got about 2 minutes where they actually all stood still.  It was heaven-for me, at least.  Also, I got the dad to actually look at the camera.  This was no small feat.  See 2nd to last comment below to get the full explanation of that.

Man this is so dang cute!  A flower for mom.

This shot above is perfect because the dad told me he does not like his picture taken and would not look at the  camera.  I was able to get the entire family, some looking, some not, and it looks so natural.  LOVE IT!

This last shot is so perfect because they are all focusing on the youngest, who, with his big personality and off-the-charts energy, gets most of the family’s attention.

Glastra Family

This fun-loving family was all smiles for this shoot.  They brought Opa, the grandfather who was visiting from Europe.  He kept telling jokes in Dutch-I didn’t know what he was saying but it was cracking them all up.  I loved it (and him!)  The Glastras recently moved to the east coast and I was so happy to be able to take their family portraits while they were still in sunny California.  My favorite shot is the one with the golden California hills in the background.  It’s one of my favorite settings-just beautiful!img_4493-16x24-2

I love this location with the golden hills in the background.  So (Northern) Californian!

Opa and the granddaughters.  Soooo precious!

 

GEO Conference

Head shots are a popular commodity these days.  Everyone seems to need one for their linkedin profile.  I went to the Global Equity Organization Conference and took head shots there as a perk for the attendees.  It was a fun day in San Mateo as I took shots of the financial officers who attended the GEO Conference.
