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.
I know we live in one of the most beautiful counties in California, but do you ever find yourself thinking your Photos are all looking the same? Maybe you don't need to scout a bunch of new locations, maybe you just need to rediscover your favorites! In Salinas and Monterey, Toro Country Park has become a favorite place for many photographers and families. And what do you think of when you think of Toro Park Photos? A big oak tree, fall leaves? Something like this?
The 'O' Family came to me from a fundraiser auction and I was so excited to finally get to meet someone who won a session by supporting one of our local schools! We had an amazing day in Monterey, the weather was beautiful and the location was so special location for portraits because it was where they were Married!
As mom's, we are always trying to make sure we photographer the important things, and those adorable moments. If you were to go back through the last 5 years of photos, how many are you actually in? I would put money down that it is less than 10%. Now how many of you (in your heads) just said, but I looked terrible that day, or I will take pictures with them when I lose 5 more pounds? (Be Honest!) Well, guess what? Your kids don't care! You will end up with a lot of photos of your children for yourselves, but how many photos of you will your kids get to keep for themselves? NOW is the time ladies! This Mommy took advantage and look at the adorable results she and her baby will have forever!
