How do you choose when there are so many good choices?!


Seriously. This particular portrait session I came away with so many that I genuinely liked, that it was hard to narrow it down to these in this post! I guess that’s a good problem to have. Laguna beach rarely disappoints when it comes to golden hour photos. On this particular day, there was a high surf warning and huge (to me) waves! This made grabbing some of the shots next to the water a little hair-raising, but Darlene handled it like a pro!

This shot above was actually an “accidental” shot in that Darlene was not trying to pose. As she did her thing, I was looking for potential shots. Times like these make a pose that may not look natural seem natural because the subject is not trying or forcing a pose. I like these moments.

This image above is one of my all time favorites. This image looks great in color too, but it is just so classically beautiful in B&W to me. Love it.

You can see above that the surf is a bit feisty in the background! It was fun and we made sure to watch each others’ backs when doing these shots. There were a few times we had to stop what we were doing and brace or flee!

Having fun, a necessity on a photo shoot!

OK, is that next set of waves going to take me out or do I have time?….oh and this is fun!Beach Portrait

So this is another one of my newly acquired all time faves. 2 from one shoot?

Catchy title, right? Got you in here! But hey, at least I am not lying.

So I was able to spend some time in the studio a few weeks back and I am just now having the time to share them with you. I was really happy with the way the session turned out. These two lovely ladies happen to be sisters, good genes if you ask me! For this particular session, we did not have an overall theme we were shooting for, but really just going with the flow and seeing what we could create. With that in mind, check it out below and let me know what you think!

BTW, the first and last picture are the same image, just one is B&W obviously. I felt like this particular image worked so well in both styles that I had to show both to do them justice… Poll below for which you like better, I am super curious at which is preferred in the eye of the beholder!
