We live in a beautiful city, where the sun is nearly always shining. The downside as a photographer is the sun is nearly always shining! Early morning shoots usually give us great cloud cover, and more opportunities to be at Balboa Park or other landmarks before the crowds arrive. The golden hour, which is roughly an hour before sunset also provides us with great lighting for an outdoor shoot.

Wear clothes that make you feel happy!

There are a few considerations when thinking about what to wear for your session. It’s best to avoid patterns and stripes within the same photo. Solid colors tend to work best on adults, within the same color palette. Children may want to dress in more pastel colors. It’s best not dress children in clothing with text on the front.
