These young kids sure know how to party. Once again I covered a fun Debut celebration! It was a packed house! Food, family and closest friends gathered together and celebrated Jane's 18th birthday! I'm beginning to feel I am the next Wedding Singer, I mean Debut Photographer!
I had the great honor to shoot one of my good friends from childhood, Marc DuBransky. I knew Marc since what, 2nd grade? We don't see each other as often as before, in fact this is probably my second time seeing him in person since high school 12 years ago. He is still the same. Great smile, happy person, full of life. The only difference this time is that he is now a family man. With his beautiful wife Tanisha and their new handsome addition to the family, Travis, we decided to shoot at a little park in Orcutt. Travis is one handsome man, who I know will be getting all the ladies in the future. He won't even have to give any pick up lines. He can just walk up to the ladies and mesmerize them by using his blue bright eyes. And thats it, ladies man for life! haha!
I've always wanted to shoot at this location. You would think this is somewhere out in the country or another state, but really it sits right on top of the hill here in the Central Coast right besides a Costco and Home Depot. Alessandra wanted something near a barnyard and immediately I thought of this place. Her mother was kind enough to drive her to the location. I couldn't ask for anything more. The sun was just right and my model was so comfortable in front of the camera. Good luck Alessandra on your senior year.
I love shooting high school kids. They are so comfortable in front of the camera. They come to the shoot well prepared and so willing to do whatever I tell them to do. Carter, who reminds me of the bad guy from the first Karate Kid movie because of his hair, is a great kid. He has his mind already made up of what he wants to do after high school. Just by looking at his pictures, he loves cars and will be great as an automotive mechanic one day. His Grandfather was nice enough to let him bring out his car for Carter's shoot. The car is so fresh, so clean! If my Grandfather had a car like that, I don't think he would even let me touch it. Good luck Carter!
