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.

Little Miss A’s mom brought her in for some head shots.  Miss A is looking into modeling and/or acting and I have no doubt that modeling just may be in her future!  Thank You Laura for bringing her in. 🙂

Junior Prom

“Remember me?”, my blog said to me as I returned to dust the cobwebs off of the keyboard. I know, I know I’ve been busy but I do admit that I am not a Blogger nor a computer techie but a photographer. Here are a few pics of my son Gabe and his girlfriend Amanda. They are so cute! If I could be young again, those were the days…sigh.

I had them do this over and over again until I got the exposure that I wanted. Sorry about that you two! 😉

The light was coming through the leaves of the tree nearby that was providing us shade. This is one of my favorites!

Getting ready.

I learned how to use textures on images thanks to Matt Nicolosi!

They’re just so cute!

I was still working on getting the exposure I wanted and snapped this while they were talking. Cute with the hands in the pocket, so gentleman like.

Happy Day!

The Correa Family

Can you feel the Love with this Family of 7!!! The Correa’s are another family you can’t really keep up with. Traveling to Arizona, catching tunes at the Jimmy Buffet concert or eating garlic fries during the 7th inning stretch with the SF Giants are one of the many “field trips” you can find them on. LOL!!!
Michelle, enjoy your images!
