One of my favorite times of year, is Senior Portrait Season! Every Session is Different and each is special in it's own way. I get to have so much fun meeting with my Seniors, learning about them and working together to come up with fun and unique ideas for each one. Here are some of my favorites!
The Monterey Peninsula is full of Families from all over the world! We live in an amazing vacation destination, and some of this is due to the Military Presence here in Monterey. Sometimes these families have to pick and leave suddenly due to transfers and assignments. When this happens, what would you think is important to do before you go? Pack, cancel utilities, look for a new house? OH! ..... and take some Family Photos to document the time your family spent here in Carmel! That is exactly what the Baker Family had in mind.
No Matter how many times I ask this question, the answer remains along the same lines ... "When is the last time you and your husband had a portrait done?" (awkward side glance, pursed lips) "Uummmmm ... At our Wedding ...????" The actual wording might change, but this is pretty accurate for about 90% of my families. Which makes it all the more important to me to make sure I take a few minutes (while the kids run amok) and get some photos of mom and dad, NOT being mom and dad! Years may have passed, appearance may have begun to change, but put Mom and Dad in that first pose and you can see their beginning all over again.
