When we met with young Sandy and her family in San Clemente; the job was for a Family Portrait for grandma. There was seven grandchildren from 2 families. We wound up spending extra time and taking individual portraits. Alan and I enjoy getting to know the familes and making sure we can get our photo subject to relax and let their personality come through.
Sandy started out shy but soon was having fun posing and moving through the shoot.
A good photographer will know how to relax their clients and how to “capture the moment” .
Alan used the natural sunlight as his main light to accentuate Sandy’s blound hair. It was at 2:00 PM when we shot this picture.
