Family Portraits | San Jose Studio Portrait Photographer

It was too cold to photograph outside so we decided to head inside for their family portraits. Most people think studio portraits of families are stuffy but when properly lit they become beautiful portraits that are displayed as art on your walls for many years. We make it so easy for you by helping your family decide what to wear and then we select a backdrop that will compliment your clothing choice. We also take it a step further by helping you decide on what size wall portraits you will need by measuring your wall space. Contact us and we can help make it easy for you for your next family portrait session. Charlene Chavez Photography

Environmental Head Shot and Photo Shoot | Charlene Chavez Photography

One of the first questions I am often asked is if I photograph outside the studio for head shots and other images that are needed for business cards, websites and brochures. The answer to that is yes! Not everyone fits into the studio style and depending on what look you are trying to portray an environmental image might be the right backdrop for you. How about an indoor location that provides a hint of what you do? The image below could relate to a home designer, a woman who runs her own business or in her case a realtor. We photographed her outdoor and indoor and had some business and playful images for her to select from.

Let Charlene Chavez Photography know when you would like to update your next head shot.

This is part of the trail that I named “Suicide Hill” in Quicksilver County Park. By the end of this climb you will need to check your pulse!

I call this place The Hill. Popular place to hang out to watch July 4th fireworks or to read a book and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Company, Business and Group Head Shots |San Jose Professional Head Shot Photographer

It’s nice to know that Google is still working for me! A few years back I was in a marketing group that explained how to get yourself found higher in SEO rankings when someone did a Google search and in my case when someone was looking for a photographer. I was able to narrow the search even further and I was able to get found on pages 1 and 2 for my family, high school seniors, children and professional head shots. It was a lot of work!!

Last week a marketing company {from Ohio}  found me on Google and booked me for a local company and client they needed professional head shots for. The marketing group I was in has been very beneficial and very happy to share that all the work I’ve done in the group has helped me to continue to get found on Google. Awesome!!!

I wanted to share one of the images of a couple who has worked with their company for many years and received Camel Awards for exemplary accomplishments. Between this couple they received 4 awards and she received a gold plated rose for her 25 years of service.

Congratulations to this awesome and sweet couple!!

Pictured below are their Camel Awards.
