The longer days of Spring brings out some beautiful natural light settings here in the East Bay of San Francisco. Chatting away with graceful lady made the time just slip away. She's starting a new chapter in her life by starting a new business. Did you know women start more small businesses than men? Go ladies! I have too many favorites to share them all here but here's just a few.
I get asked this all the time. When is the best time to have portraits done? As a photographer I will tell you anytime! As a person - I will tell you - don't put off tomorrow what you can do today. Life can be unexpectedly short. We have no control of what happens tomorrow.
When I first met this beautiful woman at a local Lean-In Group I was instantly connected to her. She's a passionate financial planner who works not just from her vast experience, but from the heart. She truly cares about you and your family. When she told me her oldest daughter would be visiting from Paris for the holidays I said - we need to do this! Add her Dad who has not been well to the group as well. Because, again, life is precious.
We had a wonderful time together the day before Christmas Eve and captured some very special moments together.
It's no secret that the Autumn months are my favorite months to photograph in. A lot of seniors come to me in the Summer, however, I feel the Autumn offers much more options in the way of clothing and SHOES! This senior was a joy to photograph - besides being gorgeous, she has the sweetest personality. As the oldest in her family - who were in tow for a quick family photo for the holiday card, we managed to keep them away while we explored this interesting location for her session.
At this Personal Branding Lifestyle Session I spent the morning and early afternoon with this super talented woman. She's a jewelry designer with highly sought-after exclusive designs AND she's an unbelievable singer/songwriter. She has so much talent it's insane! Here's just a small sampling of our fun session together. There's nothing like having a variety of images in your arsenal to use on multiple platforms and venues.
