What you'll do

As a photographer, it's my goal to curate an experience that speaks to you and seeing what kind of portrait you are looking to achieve. I love shooting at Liberty Station because I know so many cool spots to shoot there. I will give you an insider's tour on some great spots for views, murals, and lighting for your portraits. You will learn about contemporary portrait flow posing, the rules for hands, chin, shoulders, and tips posing to achieve the most flattering angles for your body type. My goal is to make something like getting your portrait taken to be fun & easy. Using natural light and my tips, I will teach you some tricks of the trade to getting a great photo of yourself every time. We will meet at one of my favorite local coffee spots and talk about some of the awesome ideas for the shoot. From there we will walk over to our location where we will take a few test shots, play your recommended playlist, and just have fun taking a few shots. I love to make people laugh, so the shoot is always a light-hearted experience. I like to always suggest to bring 3 different looks and I am also happy to provide some photo props (like sunglasses, hat, etc) as well.

Dominique

I am currently a contributing photographer for Getty Images working on expanding the Latinx commercial market under the Nosotros project. I have done food/event photography for over 10 years, but a few years back I was really drawn to doing portrait photography and decided on expanding my education through course work. Since then, it's been my mission to encouraging others to get in front of my camera. Some of my portrait work has been featured on international outlets like Getty Images' international catalog, NYLON Español, along with local publications like San Diego City Beat and LISTEN SD.

What's included

Equipment
Props for the portraits, ex: hats, sunglasses, misc prop items
