High School Senior Portraits:
Creating a fun experience for my seniors in the Santa Clarita Valley is one of my top priorities. We work together on styling their session in a way that will make their Senior Portraits be uniquely them. Each is senior is so different. It is exciting to get to know each personality and find a venue that excites them and helps them get into their session.
Morgan is such a fabulous person! I love her passionate and yet soooo sweet personality. She really listens to people when they talk which is evidence of her loving character. Morgan is enjoying looking at colleges where she wants to major in psychology. This high school senior love English, Reading, children and being creative in her drawing and writing. She really has the whole world in front of her.
Morgan is a high school senior at Valencia High School. She wanted her senior portraits to be infused with her passion, running.
Ask Debra & Richard:
The way I see it true love is just like the Beatles song…”When I get older losing my hair, many years from now Will you still be sending me a Valentine, Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out til a quater to three would ya lock the door? Will you need me, will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?
“You’ll be older too, and if you say the word I could stay with you”
“I could be handy mending a fuse when your lights have gone You can knit a sweater by the fireside Sunday mornings go for a ride digging the gardens, pulling the weeds, who could ask for more? Will you still need me? Will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?”
“Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight
If it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck & Dave
Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?
Family Portraits are so much fun when people involve their pets! Pet portraits can be tricky but Debra had secrets up her sleeve to mellow out the dogs… Aren’t they adorable!
Show casing love and documenting relationships.
Nothing makes me happier than getting to be a part of someone’s love story, no matter what stage! It is such a privilege to get to be the portrait photographer for families, couples, babies and seniors.
But Debra & Rich captured my heart… They are taking one day at a time and working on loving each other better with each step they take.
Thanks dear friends for your example of making LOVE a verb!

Setting up a Photobooth?
Photo booths add entertainment, fun, and light hearted play to any event. I’ve done a handful and always enjoy way more than I thought I would. It is a great way to get your name out there, get more facebook fans and drive traffic to your website/blog. I’m not an expert on photobooths by any means but here are some tips I’ve learned along the way.
1. Find a spot that doesn’t have direct sunlight or dappled light
2. Make sure your backdrop is big enough for large families and tall people3. Keep your camera on a trip pod
4. Use a remote
5. Have goofy props
6. Use an assistant to track people to their emails
7. decorate your backdrops and use fun furniture peices
8. Have a theme
9. Shoot in manual
10. Set the tone for a fun and goofy shot verses a portrait like sitting
11. Keep the same focal length for each shot
12. Check each shot to make sure eyes are all opened etc.
13. Set a high aperture

Tyler’s Senior Experience
I love hearing the excitement and emotion in mom’s voice when she calls and announces she has another senior graduating high school. The High school senior portrait experience is just as much about mom as it is the senior. Motherhood is filled with milestones and learning how to let go of the ones we love. Senior pictures are way to celebrate this stage in life with our young adults. Next step allowing them to graduate and move onto the next exciting venture in their life.One mom shared with me that it was actually experiencing the shoot with her daughter that she was investing in! I love the privilege of being able to provide that experience for both my seniors and their parents.
I love the behind the scenes shots! Mom adjusting the bow tie, sister taking shots with her iphone. It is all part of the experience so of course I have to document it.
