Professional Hair and Makeup is recommended and we recommend Ana Cheadle and her team of professionals from The Hair Lounge in Orcutt, CA. Call and set up an appointment with them prior to your portrait session. I recommend calling a few days prior to the day of your portrait session and set an appointment at least 2 hours before your session. You can reach Ana at (805)937-8986 and their address is 3420 Orcutt Rd #102 in Santa Maria, CA.
Choose an outfit that flatters your figure and don’t forget to accessorize. Try to avoid flat black or plain white, instead wear something with color. Bring clothing from formal to casual. I usually suggest nice summer dresses for the ladies with accessories and for the guys, I love bow ties, suspenders, plaid, and converse shoes. So have fun, be creative, be bold and most importantly, be yourself.
All portrait sessions are set outdoors. You have two choices, something urban (downtown, city, buildings, brick walls, etc.) or something of nature (trees, high grass, vineyards, beach). I have two “go-to” nature settings located in Orcutt, CA. However, if you would like something else that fits more of your personality, I am more than happy to fulfill and brainstorm about it. Please check travel fee section. Depending on the location will determine the time of the start of the shoot. For example if the location is an open area with no shade, the best time to start shooting would be 15-20 minutes before sunset. Time will be determined once you have booked and have chosen your location.
Style and Theme
When I cover weddings I approach it as if I was telling a story. I love capturing the day in a photo journalistic style. I love it when it’s real and natural as oppose to awkward poses. That’s also the goal for these high senior portraits. Not everyone loves the camera including myself, so I will expect you to be nervous and have no idea what to do. I will lead you in a pose, but what I want to capture is you being yourself. Some of my clients have left it up to me where to shoot, but if you have a hobby of some sort, I’d love to hear it. For example if you love to surf, there is no question why we should not shoot your photos at a beach and with your surfboard. If you love horses, why not shoot at a barn and possibly with a horse. Ideas are endless. If you have a vision of something, don’t be afraid to let me know about it. Also, I always thought bringing props to the session can put you in ease, so think about that as well.
Availability and Booking
Availability is limited since I only photograph one student per day. I am available most days except for the following days, Sundays and Thursdays. Please call (805)314-1534 and/or email me at Jeff@jeffreysanjuan.com to book a date or if you have any questions.
