Natural Light Portraits
The Shelter-In-Place has been extended and I cannot go back to doing what I love for almost another month. I've missed taking photos so much and couldn't take it any more. I somehow managed to convince my husband to pose for me for a few minutes so I can remember the joy that photography brings into my life.
I met Joey just a couple of weeks before the whole COVID-19 lockdown started. It was such a fun photo session! I took his senior photos in Pacifica at the beach the small section of which has a few fisherman houses. Thisspot relates to Joey as he works at acommercial fishing boat. He told me about amazing sunstets in the middle of the ocean when everything is golden, and countless stars that make the whole experience extra magic when there are no people around your boat for miles.
Liya is a young ambitious girl. She wants to become a food scientist, and loves flowers and ice cream. We did her graduation senior portraits in Boulder, CO. It was such an honor to be her photographer and capture this important milestone.
This Ukrainian beauty Maria moved to the USA from Odessa, Ua, and has lived in San Francisco ever since. She is also a photographer, but does modeling now and again. We met for a brief hour in Chinatown in San Francisco and wandered the streets until my car almost got towed. Definitely a fun day!
This beautiful family are enjoying some time together in one of sunny but windy mornings in San Francisco. Their daddy has to be away from his family for the most part so he can finish school on the East Coast. Al says that the hardest part is to not be with his family, especially when baby Ava is changing every day.
Alexa is one of the most inspiring people that I have ever met! She loves helping people realize their strengths, and encourages others to follow their passion and achieve their goals. She creates content about self-development and entrepreneurship and tries to say YES to life at every opportunity! She is beautiful inside and out, and I was honored to photograph this amazing woman.
Family Photography, Baby Pictures
Pauline's baby boy turned one and she decided to make him a present and book a family photo session. We went to San Francisco Zoo and really enjoyed that little adventure. Such a happy time!
San Francisco is a very important place for Brian, as this is the city where he got engaged and then married to his beautiful wife, and they also had their little princess who now is 2 years old. Now they are relocating to North Carolina and wanted to remember this special time in their lives. I was honored to have been chosen as their family photographer and glad that we could capture these precious moments in San Francisco in photos .
Baby boy celebrates his first year with his family
Nestor booked a session with me very last minute. He realized that the best way to remember his son's first birthday was to capture this milestone with professional photographs. So we met in the afternoon, a bit more than an hour before sunset, and had a blast together. Click to view the pictures on the blog!
General impression from photos depends on many factors. Of course, composition, light, and editing are crucial. But so are the location and the clothing style that the subjects choose. The last two should compliment each other, and sometimes it could be challenging to coordinate the outfits, especially if there are more then two persons being photographed.
In this post I will try to give you some tips on styling when it comes to family photos.
To provide you with all necessary information, I put together the most frequently asked questions, such as additional information about photo packages, turn-around time, editing and retouching of the images, what happens before/after the session, and other details that will help you get a better idea of my photography services.
