Maternity Pictures at Terranea Resort
A few weeks ago, I meet with Alissa and her significant other at Terrenea Resort in Palos Verdes for your maternity pictures. If you haven't been, I would highly recommend you visiting as it a beautiful place for a staycation and/or for beautiful maternity or family photographs.
We met at the resort and took a short stroll to the coast line.
A portrait print is a staple product from most if not all professional photographers. I'm within that count of photographers. With a catch, When I talk about professional portrait prints with clients, many have the perception of a portrait print similar to those you receive from a local big box or corner drug store.
These prints are totally different. The thickness of the portrait print is the first thing many families notice from the beginning. As you can see from looking at the picture below, it's not a sheet of floppy paper; it's a substantial weighted item. Many families place their portrait prints on an easel and display their family's picture on a coffee or end table.

Los Angeles Photographer (Torrance) | 2021 is officially over!! Bring on 2022!!!!
Covid has impacted our lives in so many ways...good and bad. I'm not I'm not the only one, I went into 2021 thinking things were going to be a lot better than 2020. However, the year ended just as crazy as the previous year. Many families were hesitant to have their family pictures taken because of the unknowns dealing with Covid.
However, once I announced a family model call, things began to take off! Because of Covid, many families were wanting and in need of new family pictures in the area.
Why Is A Reveal Session Important
After having your family pictures taken, the Reveal Session is the next important thing on the list. Why? It's the moment many family look forward to - looking at their professionally retouched portraits. It's also an opportunity to relieve the moments your family's portraits were taken and think about how your family's portraits will decorate your home.
Five Stylish Tips To Look Amazing During Your Mini Session
Many family photographers like to have mini-sessions that are holiday or special theme-based. You will have the chance to dress to the occasion and get creative with costumes, colors, and accessories.
Did you know the clothes that are worn during a family’s portrait session can make or break a portrait? Family pictures that have excessive patterns and everyone has strips can make for a busy picture. If the outfit outshines the people in the photo, then reconsider the outfit.
The clothing choices for your family portrait should disappear and the faces of the people within the portrait should shine and stand out; not what they’re wearing. Let’s examine and check out these awesome suggestions on what you and your family could wear to be picture perfect:
1. Coordinate your outfits, but don’t match. Choose a simple color palette and go from there. This will give everyone the option to pick an outfit of their own, but still be subtle and fit the scene.
Today is Save Your Photos Day
Today is National Save Your Photos Day. It’s a day to bring out your old family pictures and reminisce about your family’s memories. Yes, it’s a day to bring out giant family photo albums and look at your siblings, mom, dad, grandparents, and pictures of other family members.
With the rise of digital cameras and social media, we as a people have begun to rely solely on digital images and pictures on our mobile devices. However, with only digital images, your family pictures can get misplaced, deleted, or damaged at any moment. I was quickly reminded over the weekend, that computers fail. I don’t want you to be like me and have all your precious family pictures stored on your computer and then your computer fails. Can you imagine the gut sinking feeling?
A few weeks ago, I made this post on Facebook regarding how technology changes, and you don't want to have your family's portraits get lost on obsolete technology.
If you remember, not to long ago, CDs were the rave. You could find them everywhere; on your computer, DVD, car, etc. Families used CD to store their family pictures, to listen to music and more.
Then we moved to USBs. Have you purchased a new computer recently? USB drives are typically not included in a standard computer purchase.
Mom & Son Portraits in Palos Verdes
Family pictures are priceless to have in your home. It's an opportunity to look at the person or people you love the most!
Earlier this year, this beautiful Mom contacted me to photograph her and her handsome son. We discussed a potential date and location for their family portraits. We agreed upon Malaga Cove Library in Palos Verdes.
What is a family portrait session and why should I have one?
Many families are reluctant to have pictures taken because of anxiety and fear that it won’t be fun. However, having your family picture taken is a great way to showcase your family’s true personality, relax, have fun, and create fond memories together.
Portrait sessions are the perfect time to let your silliness come alive and create beautiful moments with your children. Making silly faces and skipping around is the perfect way to start the session and break the ice.
