It’s time to plan ahead for your Fall Family Portraits.

At Charlene Chavez Photography, we make it easy to help you decide on clothing and location. We provide a Family Clothing Guide to help you select colors so your Family Pictures will look beautifully coordinated. We look at framed Family Portraits as an extension of art on your walls that you will display for years so why not look your best!

Please give us a call when you are thinking of having your Family Pictures taken. We will be glad to answer any questions and help you plan ahead.

San Jose Senior Portraits | San Jose and Bay Area Senior Portrait Photographer

[caption id="attachment_3990" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] Senior Pictures[/caption]

We had a great time at the beach photographing Senior Pictures for this trio of High School Senior girls. They all attend Leland High School and have been enjoying the last few days of summer before school begins. Busy schedules lie ahead which is the reason they wanted to get the Senior Portraits done.

 

How does the whole process of taking Senior Pictures work?

It’s a very easy process and just takes a simple phone call or email to Charlene Chavez Photography. We speak about what location you are looking for, what theme if any such as vintage, with a cessna, fashionable flair, parachute dress or blue skies. There are so many possibilities..if you can think it we can make it happen. Then next step is to meet at the studio where we will show you a slideshow of a variety of our work. We walk you through products that are available such as Portraits, Canvas, Canvas Collections, Metal Portraits, Albums, Books and many many other products. We go over pricing and your Wish List, Your Wish List is very important because you will know exactly where you are going to place it on your walls or how many items you will be needing. You don’t want to forget your Siblings, Uncles, Aunts and Grandma!

After you book your date, we collect your Session Fee so that we add you to the calendar. Before you leave we provide a Magazine type booklet that contains a list of very important essentials for the day of the photo shoot. We want your son or daughter to come prepared and the Magazine is very helpful. We meet on the day of the photo shoot and create many beautiful images. We set another date and create a slideshow for you and who ever you want to invite but be ready, the slideshow will probably make you cry but that’s ok, we have tissue at the studio for that. You then view your images again and  you select the product, sizes, how many and you will pay before you leave.

I place the order for your product, they arrive 7-10 business days and I deliver them to you. You cry again, I’ll have tissue again and we give each other a huge hug because we are both very happy you booked your teens Senior Pictures.

And we all lived happily ever after…

Seriously, if you have any questions about Senior Pictures please give us a call.

San Jose Beauty & Fashion Photographer | Post From My New Cool WordPress App

I love to be outdoor and travel quite a bit. I usually take thousands of pics using my iPhone. I found a WordPress App that gives me great flexibility to blog away from my computer.

My first mobile blog post…this is so cool!!! Popped in to see my girlfriend Malai at her new salon location this morning. She’s an esthetician and can tell you how to get beautiful skin just like hers.

Congratulations Malai!!!
