New Studio Location Celebration – Charlene Chavez Photography

I am a very blessed lady! My friends and family came to the rescue with much needed help for getting the new studio ready. I have to remind myself that there are always people willing to help and to try to not do everything myself. A huge Thank You to my husband Mike for his mad construction skills. Among many of the behind the scenes work he did my most favorite is the beautiful vanity he put together! {{{Luv}}!!! My sisters Michelle, Cindy and Sonia and my girlfriends Chrissy, Shar and Denise who helped decorate, set up, put out the food and drinks and all in the nick of time!!! Whew! Thank you Chris Kelly for your beautiful painting skills and to Erin Blodgett for gathering names for the raffle that evening. Thank you Ibiss Boutique, 95120 Lifestyle Magazine, Inate Sense, Bloom, Esbe, Exoctica Day Spa & Boutique and Los Gatos Travel for your raffle items and the swag that went into the bag! I am very very thankful! One last vendor that shared their sweetness was That Candy Bar. Yum!

Thank you Shar for taking pictures the evening of so that I had a chance to mingle!

Senior Portraits – San Jose & Bay Area Fashion Photographer

I’ve been traveling, attended a workshop recently and returned from vacation not too long ago. I have many, many more senior images to blog about but first I wanted to share this one image from a High School Senior Photo Shoot I did in the studio. This senior has the most amazing legs, hair and skin she is just so beautiful inside and out and very blessed to have such a wonderful mom too! She also did an under water shoot as well, which was my first, and I will share those soon too. I love working with this age group because there is so much in life they don’t know, how much they think they do and I wonder most of all how and what will do they in life that will make a difference. It also reminds me of my youth and how much I thought I knew but no matter what age we are, there is always so much to learn.
I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do.

We can also assist you from choosing the perfect accessories, beautifying seniors with our awesome make-up and hair stylists and finding the perfect shooting location.
