Choosing the right photographer for your intended session basically comes down to four things: What type of portraits you want, choosing a style, finding a person you like, and deciding how much you’re willing to spend. Once you know what to consider, it’s not that hard to choose a photographer you’ll be happy with. By showing you what to consider, and what to be skeptical about, this post will help you find the best Sonoma county portrait photographer for you.
There are 5 core elements that make up a good portrait: Location, lighting, composition, emotion and technical settings. When all 5 of these elements are well executed, a great portrait is created. If any of these elements comes up short, the quality of the portrait suffers. A fanatic obsession with good implementation of these elements will lead to better photos, and more consistent portraits.
I kept hearing from other parents about how there is this time while raising your kid where your whole job becomes keeping them from killing themselves. I thought this was hyperbole until my toddler decided it was his time to prefect the art of the face plant.
Looking back on all the weddings I’ve had the pleasure of documenting, the ones that are always the most memorable in my mind are the small ceremonies. There’s something warmly cozy about a guest list that is culled down to include only immediate family and the closest of friends. Today’s post showcases an intimate backyard wedding I got to capture for my cousin Abbey and her husband Rob in Santa Rosa.
When I create portraits, one of the most important things to me is that I don’t look back on them years later and hate them. I’m never more aware of this then when I’m capturing portraits of my son.
Today I’m excited to share Hazel’s second photoshoot with me as her and her husband Zee get ready to welcome their new baby into the world! I’d love to link to her previous session in this post, but much to my disappointment, her boudoir photo shoot is GZ4 classified. You’ll just have to trust me when I say that she has more than a few images I’d love to show off in my portfolio if I could!
The good news is that she said she’d be okay sharing her maternity photos from her session here which I’m super stoked about! A few of them look pretty different compared to what I typically see posted and I really like that!
Today’s post features my headshot session with San Francisco mural artist Maxfield Bala. Max is an amazing mural artist who has created murals for some well known companies including: Dropbox, Mountain Dew, The Hard Rock Hotel, Coca Cola, Samsung, DHL, Lagunitas Brewing Company and much more.
Earlier this month I learned that my sister Jenn and her family are moving away. I’m simultaneously sad that they won’t be living close by and excited for them as they take on this new chapter of their lives.
Although they aren’t moving cross country or anything drastic like that, they will still be far enough away that we won’t get to see each other nearly as often as we have been. So before she left, we made a point to get together and try and get some portraits of her kids.
