Yesterday I met with the Mazzenga family at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach for some fun family photography.  We had clear skies at 4pm and it was very warm – perfect beach weather! 

Because of the direct sun, we started by shooting under the shade of the pier.  The natural light reflecting up from the sand is beautiful under the pier.  Then we moved out to the open sun, and finally finished up with some “wet” photos (my personal favorite of course, although the water is a bit chilly this time of year).

Here are a few favorites from yesterday’s beach photo shoot.  We’ll have the rest of them finished later today, and we’ll see the Mazzenga family back at our studio next week to view all of their prints!

Part four of four from beautiful outdoor portrait sessions at Golden Gate Park and Lincoln Golf Course overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco last week.

Meet Alicia and Philippe….Alicia is getting into modeling and although I was warned in advance that Philippe is “shy” he was totally cool, laid back and did very well.  Possibly modeling is in his future as well???

Alicia was awesome to work with, had a beautiful natural smile and with Philippe’s help we got some amazing modeling AND couples photos.  Here are a few favorites:

Part three of four from our outdoor portrait session in San Francisco last week.  Meet Cassandra and Sal, two local models and good friends.  Cassandra was interested in shooting with us and was nice enough to bring Sal along so that we could shoot some couples photos in addition to her modeling photos.

Here are a few of our favorites from Cassandra and Sal, again shot at Golden Gate Park and the 17th hole at Lincoln Golf Course, overlooing the Golden Gate Bridge.

This is the second of four blog posts on the outdoor portrait photos that we did last week in San Francisco.  This post focuses on Patty, and aspiring young model living in the San Francisco area.

We started shooting Patty at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park.  Then we moved to the 17th hole at Lincoln Park Golf Course.

Here are a few samples:
