A Fashion Portrait with a Tux!
I was very excited when Stacy called me. She mentioned that her son has a Tux from being a ring bearer last month and asked me if it’s OK to photograph him in upcoming family photo session wearing it? Are you kidding me? I love making creative and unusual photographs! Bring champagne and let’s get it started! And now we have proof that her son was ladies’s man even before puberty!
To make this work we needed a location where wearing a tux would be OK. Palace Hotel in San Francisco is such a place. My motto is: “It is always better to ask forgiveness than permission!”
Lucky for us, hotel security intervened just as we wrapped our “fashion photo session”!
There was a great article in last Sundays Chronicle of my clients Frank, Sonny and their daughter Ava about their costume skills, especially for Halloween. To see the article Click Here
I had the privilege to photograph them and their spectacular outfits for the last several years. Each outfit is hand made! Each photograph was designed to look and feel like original poster or photograph from the movies.
Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Minnelli, Rita Hayworth, Ava Gabor, Cher, etc... It does not matter. Ava can play the part of all of them.
Here is a compilation of my favorite photographs from our portrait photography sessions:
I have been photographing Gitta for many years: Maternity photography, Newborn photography, Family photography and everything in between. I get very excited when my client who is "Mom" calls me and wants to "Glam Up" a little and do a "Model for a Day" photo session. Well, it's more like a model for a few hours! :) Child is waiting!
Gitta and I went to Marin Headlands National Park for our photo session. Please do not tell park rangers! :)
The weather was perfect and mom looked like a model! We succeeded!
