Accordion Book for Birthday Celebration
Your birthday is a great opportunity to have a portrait session to celebrate your birthday. Earlier this year Blossom contacted me regarding photographing her for her 21st birthday portraits. We discussed the desired location for her portrait session as well as her wardrobe based on her portrait location.
We met at Malaga Cove Plaza for Blossom's portraits. We took many amazing portraits, that Blossom had a difficult time selecting the best portraits for her accordion book.
How to look your best in pictures
As a professional photographer serving the Los Angeles and Northern Virginia/Washington DC area, I hear a lot of clients dreading taking an updated family portrait because of the fear of how they will look. However, it's nothing to be scared or fearful to do. At some point in life, we all go through some sort of hesitance of getting in front of the camera. Unfortunately, we live in a time when cameras are found everywhere; including our phones. With a few pointers, the next time a camera is seen will not need to find the nearest exit or escape the area!
