Downtown Visalia- Portrait Session

Over Memorial Day weekend I got some needed R&R at my parent's place. Plenty of swimming, karaoke, and mama's cooking. Last night my family decided to watch the X-men Wolverine movie and something caught my eye while we were parking in the public garage. The way the light fell in between the alleyway of the garage inspired me to take a closer look. Now you should know that when I plan a shoot I sometimes do location scouting, but sometimes I accidentally find a place like an ordinary side street that bounces light oh-so-nicely. I immediately planned to return in the morning with my sister for a spontaneous shoot.

Here is the wall that inspired me

Just put someone in front of the wall like NiƱa and the frame becomes more interesting

Add in some playful saturation and color tinting and make it even more unique

This shot is my favorite from the set. The way I had her leaning danced really well the tree.

Classic. The pose not the soda pop.
