I don’t usually involve props in my shoots, but I’m definitely not against them! For Danny’s senior portrait session, he wanted to include a couple things that are very important to him – his trusty dog, and the antique woody he restored with his dad’s help over the last couple years. Also, we shot at a new location for me – Davenport Landing Beach – near, you guessed it, Davenport, California. When I arrived, I saw a few people wind sailing out on the choppy water – a sure sign that it was going to be really breezy (my least favorite weather attribute for photo shoots). Luckily, Danny’s mom was happy to be my lighting assistant, keeping my whole setup from blowing over with the first gust of wind (thanks Mom!). After taking a few photos with the pup and old car, we explored the beach a little bit before wrapping things up. Here’s my favorites photos from the shoot, enjoy!
