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.
