Lydia and Chris came to me as a gift. And I mean this in more than one way.
Lydia’s brother and I met awhile back and he knew right away a portrait session would be the perfect gift for his sister and her husband who have done so much for him.
Then I met Lydia and Chris for portraits at Heisler Park in Laguna Beach and I realized I was in for a treat myself. Chris is an engineer, architect, designer and craftsman with Lydia as the marketing director and co-founder of their design firm, and the couple just oozed innovation and creative expression. They brought a design Chris has spent his entire career fine tuning, seeking images that highlighted the chair, displayed it’s artistic elements and of course, included them. Such a shift from the family portraits I thought I was in for!
The shoot was fun and fantastic and both Lydia and Chris and myself and my assistant were pleased. It was creative collaboration at it’s finest and I was again reminded that when we work together to produce something unique and unlike anything we could have done on our own, it can be the greatest gift of all.

Carie - Love, love, love the composition of this image. In a shot like this, I’m struggling with getting the people “lit” enough, without getting the background too light & washed out. Pointers?
