I recently met some friends in Yosemite to photograph the moonbows at night and to photograph some models during the day. I wish my moonbow photos were as lovely as these portraits.

Last year I photographed a wedding at a beautiful mountain top venue near Yosemite. I was so excited when Paradise Springs invited me back for their annual bridal show last week!

It’s less than 2 months till graduation and many students, including my own daughter (featured in this post), are realizing that they need to have their senior portraits taken so they don’t have to use that unflattering yearbook photo to commemorate this once in a lifetime achievement.

 Here are a few tips to get the most out of your session.

senior class photos

What will you wear? I always encourage my seniors to bring a large suitcase filled with their favorite clothes and accessories. Jewelry, hats, scarves, boots, a favorite pair of jeans, a coat, sweaters, letterman’s jacket, uniforms and instruments are encouraged. Girls, consider bringing 2 dresses, one casual and one formal. Boys, a coat and tie is always a good look. Before the session my assistant and I help you choose the right outfits and accessories for each location. I also have a lot of clothes and accessories on hand in case you want to borrow something.

Where will you be photographed? That all depends on where you like to go in your free time and what do you like to do. I’ve photographed 100s of portrait sessions in the Santa Cruz – Monterey Bay area and I have tons of suggestions. I always like to have 3 locations in mind before we leave. For this session we chose my studio (above) and a couple of spots in downtown Santa Cruz including a little civil war cemetery. Perfect for Helena’s retro, quirky personality.

When should you schedule your session? That depends on a few things. It can take up to 2 weeks to get your portrait proofs. If you want to have custom graduation invitations made that could take another week or so for designing and printing. Plan accordingly. Many students plan their portrait sessions the summer before their senior year. Others like to wait till Spring. Regardless of when you choose to schedule your session remember that this will probably be one of the only times you have your portraits professionally taken. The next time might not be until you are getting married! Choose your photographer wisely!

With such a huge milestone just around the corner, the time is NOW to schedule your senior portrait session! Call Rebecca and schedule today! 831-325-4183

Why does it always seem like I work late on Fridays? It’s not so bad tonight because I’m finishing up my week and getting ready to go to a huge photography convention! Needless to say, I won’t be scheduling headshots next Tuesday (3/12/13) because I’ll be drooling all over new gear, software and amazing images at WPPI in Las Vegas.  It will be extra fun this year because I talked my husband into going with me and plan on having a great time and staying up late. For now, time to post some images.

One of my recent engagement sessions was with Eriko and Matt who will be getting married in Japan next month! I am looking forward to seeing her wedding photos and her exquisite kimono.

If you’ve been waiting until spring to have a portrait or engagement session give me a call 831-325-4183. The weather has been great and the wildflowers are starting to bloom here in Santa Cruz.
