San Jose Children Sports |Sport Themed Session For Children Portraits in San Jose | SF & Bay Area Children’s Sport Photographer

I just love it when parents have an idea for their Children’s Portraits and we make it come to life. If you can imagine an idea we can create your special children’s portraits!

I spoke with the mom on the phone about what she wanted. I then went to her home and she walked me into a very cool room that had vintage equipment and vintage portraits of various sports. I looked up to find a huge chandelier made of rod iron and immediately wanted one in my studio. That’s another story but this room was pretty amazing.

They brought their daughter in with a vintage dress, vintage soccer ball, vintage tennis balls and racquet, vintage soccer shoes, vintage boxing gloves and other equipment such as the boxing bag. From the very first look, you can tell she was a sweetie. When she got serious, she was serious and was a complete super star aka badass!

Below are a series of images taken in the studio.

Special Children’s Sport Session.

In the image above I just love her seriousness.

Below is the image I created with some added effects so we can create any type of effects if wanted for your children’s sport session.

Special Effects added on Children Sports Session.

All of the images were photographed in the studio. using studio lights are key in getting dramatic images for children sports sessions because you don’t want flat lighting you see in natural light photography. We have large 4×6 ft soft boxes that provide beautiful lighting that you cannot get with outdoor natural light.

The image below is what the parents had printed for their Vintage Room and decided on a large canvas.
