Happy Birthday, Friend | San Diego Hunger Games Photography

Shortest photo session ever, with absolutely the most prep time. We may be (ahem) in our late thirties, but we still like to play, and my uber-talented friend Erin (of ChoirBox) and I had been brainstorming this session ever since she decided to cover over her previous (less awesome) tattoo with some serious art* (don’t try this at home, kids). Erin has a way with a bow and arrow, and she even MAKES these things . . . plus quivers and all sorts of other leather items. We felt that she should definitely design and sew herself an amazing dress to showcase the tattoo, commission a custom archery target made of natural woven fibers, and head out to the nearest field to take some good photos.

Upon our arrival, we stopped off at my second-favorite photo spot at that location before heading down the hill toward the big, open field. Half way down, we were accosted by a park ranger who, unfortunately, evicted us from the park for possession of a firearm. She was nice about it, but still – no big, open field. So that was sad, but we still had plenty of time to grab a few more portraits at photo spot #2. I love how they turned out! Happy birthday, Erin!

*From Erin: ¬†“Original art made by¬†Chad Whitson¬†based on Psalm 127:4 ‘Like arrows in the hand of a warrior¬†are the children of one’s youth.’ The symbolism is as follows: two arrows; one for Noah, one for Sascha. ¬†Adam is the bow, I’m the quiver, God is the Archer.”

Tasha Smith Godinez | San Diego Musician Headshot Photographer

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Tasha Smith Godinez, one of San Diego’s premier harpists and my good friend. ¬†Tasha and I made a last minute decision to re-route our session to another location, and I am so glad we did! ¬†I loved how these turned out, with her beautiful black harp and dress set against the gorgeous springtime leaves and grass.

Military Head Shots | San Diego Military Photographer

What a fun project . . . this handsome Naval officer requested head shots for a Mother’s Day gift to his Mom. ¬†These were especially meant to honor his grandfather’s memory. We started at the Midway for a great themed background, and then we spent time duplicating two treasured images of his grandfather, who was also in the Navy many years ago. ¬†We took some casual urban shots to round out the session Downtown.
