[photography] is an awesome location

I have been racking my brain for some awesome new locations for my holiday “Short But Sweet” sessions. I usually choose a spot and settle in for a couple of hours in the morning and evening on two different days as you come with your family for your 20 min of fame. These sessions cost $75 and include a 5×7 digital file of your select or a $25 credit toward your purchase if you do prints or my custom designed cards through me.

I will also be offering “In A Nutshell” (30 min. mini sessions) discounted for this time of year. This is a short session at your home or location of your choice (I am dying to do something at a laundromat or funky part of town-anyone?) and one 5×7 digital file for your holiday cards. Pricing and details to come.

I know many of you are already thinking about your holiday portraits as I have been asked by several people recenlty when I am going to start scheduling these. I just did a full session down at Cotton’s for a family visiting from Illinois who wanted to capture “A California Summer.” They are already ordering their Christmas card prints!

November is a great month for photography in San Clemente but I am also considering doing a day of “Short But Sweet” sessions in September or October. I would love to get comments from all of you regarding location ideas and whether you would be interested in a Sept/Oct session date.

Some new locations I have thought of doing the sessions at that would be different than the usual San Clemente Pier location. Let me know what you think!!

Trestles trail (a bit of a walk)
Trails or San Onofre (entry fee required)
The ridgeline trail above Salvador
Ole Hanson Beach Club
The Beach Trail walking bridge

    what about Dana Point Harbor at the jetty out by the marine institute. The cove to the north of the jetty is cool and really scenic when the tide is low and you have the cliffs as a back drop or the ocean looking north. or haystack rock or seal rocjk as a back drop whatever they call it now. just a thought or idea.. I take photo of Neilly down there when we visit. she loves the tide pools.kris

    Kris, tidepools are definitely one of my favorite nearby spots to photograph people. I guess I am trying to think of San Clemente places for those die hard locals who are committed to their town for Christmas photos. I’ll probably have that as an option for one of the days though! Thanks for the comments!! Keep an eye out for your new cool Highkey Camera strap…it’s on it’s way.
