San Diego Dance Portraits

San Diego Portrait Photographer

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with a beautiful young woman who wasn’t afraid to be herself and revisit a part of her childhood that she hadn’t visited in years. This is exactly what I want for my “Feel Beautiful” Portrait Sessions. I was determined to do something different for this Portrait Session and rather than have a typical portrait session for dancers on the beach here in San Diego, I wanted a unique location that required a bit of a travel journey and could provide a gorgeous backdrop! Styling was fairly simple as Valentines Day was coming up and since it involved ballet, a tutu of some sort seemed mandatory. Hair and makeup was natural and easy to accomplish. Here are a few dance pictures from the afternoon.

Initially, I had a vision of a beautiful mountaintop location with peaks and an amazing sunset in the background but after walking upon this field I knew that a hike to the top wasn’t going to be needed. When i first saw this field, I knew the dead bushes and grass would be a fascinating paradox to a beautiful, bold, and lively ballerina. The brown tones were the backdrop that I knew would enhance her outfit and not distract from her beautiful ballet moves. I was lucky enough to be able to use this location just northeast of San Diego in Poway, California. 

It was amazing that she hadn’t practiced or done any of these ballet moves in quite sometime and yet she managed to look like a pro and reconnect with that part of her past. It was so inspiring to see and imagine this grown young woman as a child dancing around on a stage with all the confidence and strength a young girl can have.

 

What other locations would you like to see me take ballet portraits at?

Best Photography Locations in Balboa Park

Balboa Park Photoshoot Locations

I put together a short video of beautiful photography locations in San Diego’s Amazing Balboa Park. There are several factors to consider when scheduling an Engagement or Family Portrait Session there, so re-moisten those contacts and start the video. afterwards, read on to learn more about it!

(Shot entirely on my iPhone 6S)

I wanted to share this with my clients and friends in order to help you make a better decision when considering locations throughout San Diego, as visuals are A much better way to showcase its’ beauty.

I happened to visit the park on one of the very few days of rain here in San Diego in 2018. It was actually nice because I was able to get some great footage without having to worry about the bustle of the Popular “December Nights” that lead up to Christmas.

There are a few locations that I was not able to get to this particular day but I will add them soon as I can! There is a wonderful cactus garden that is absolutely amazing and some off-the-beaten-path trails that are spectacular. There are plenty of open grassy areas with pepper trees and the San Diego Zoo is just a short walk away. The locations featured in the video are easily accessible to everyone. The Japanese Friendship Garden requires a $12 entrance fee (General Adult Admission) and a $50 photography fee. This fee is used to help maintain the gardens and should definitely be considered when deciding on a location.

I hope this has helped you to make a decision and if you have any favorite areas around San Diego or Southern California, let me know by sharing it in the comments and I will work on making a video!
