Each year on October 31st, the children of Venice gather at Centennial Park to start the parade that winds down Venice Avenue. The children look adorable in their creative costumes. And sometimes the parents get dressed up as well. Following the parade, the Venice Avenue shop owners pass out candy to the children returning from the parade. This delightful tradition happens each year in historic downtown Venice.
With her bubbly personality, Brittany was so much fun to photograph. We photographed her in several outfit changes including her golf outfit that she wore when she played golf for Venice High School. And she also brought her favorite driver to complete the look! After which we went outside to a local park to finish the session. When we book Senior Sessions, we find out what each senior’s interests are. We then incorporate that in their session. After all, it is all about them!

With digital photography comes the power of clipping a subject out from the image and placing them on another background. When we photograph our clients, we use a basic light gray backdrop. We can go with that color, or clip out the client and place them against another color. This offers our clients a variety of backgrounds they can use. For Charleen with Compass Property Management, we clipped her out and placed on six different backgrounds. Which one do you like the best?
Most of our clients chose to have her family portraits done at the beach. And while the beach is an awesome setting, a park is a great place as well. With a park setting, you have trees and foliage as your backdrop. Clothing colors should also conform. While lighter clothing is preferred for the beach, darker clothing, jeans, brown, blues or green tones are a great compliment in a park setting. If you are looking for something different, consider being photographed at the park!
Courtney chose the beach as the outdoor location for her Senior Portrait Session. A lot of today’s high school seniors select outdoor sessions. With beach sessions, there are the elements of sand, blue sky and water. We pose the seniors in a few different locations on the beach. This gives them a slightly different background for their poses. We finish the session with a sunset finale. For these reasons, it is clearly evident why the beach is the preferred location choice for today’s high school seniors

Here are some images from this Real Estate Photography Session:
We received a call from a Mom, with two High School Seniors, who wanted to schedule their Senior Portrait Session at the beach. After we got everything set up, she later contacted us to ask if we can add one more girl to the session. The additional senior was a friend of the two girls. Of course, we said yes to all three. The girls changed clothes while the other ones were getting photographed, so it worked out quite well. Then to make things even better, we had a great sunset for the end of the session. All three of these young ladies were a pleasure to photograph.
