I’ve known Kamrin since we were both in grade school so it was really exciting for us to get together again for her Newport Beach portrait photography session. I had a chance to work with her back in 2010 for her senior portraits, but personally this session was wayyy more fun!
I wanna start this post with one of my favorite photos from the day. The light that afternoon was AH-mazing! Plus, Kamrin looks just fabulous in this shot! So awesome to see lifelong friends grow up!
The sunset that day was particularly pretty and I thought it might be fun to try out a few silhouetted shots. I don’t use this technique very often because it tends to fall out of my style, but I love what we ended up with! Maybe I’ll have to do it more often. =)
I have this bad habit of making cheesy jokes during my sessions. There’s a reason I’m a photographer and not a comedian. At least Kamrin thinks I’m funny!
Kamrin wanted to take a few shots that showed off her bubbly personality and she decided that a jumping shot was definitely the way to go…
For my natural light sessions I always bring a reflector/diffuser kit with me to help me light my subjects the way I need to. This inevitably leads to questions and comments about the kit. “What’s that? How does it work?” etc. Kamrin tried her hand at folding up the reflector, and like a pro, got it on the first try! Impressive!
Swoon! This is my favorite shot of the day! I think Kamrin looks just stunning!
