Tatiana Sotelo Portrait Session

When Tatiana showed up for her portrait session, she declared “I’m a really bad model!”  I took one look at this raven haired beauty and I said “Umm…I don’t think so.”  She slipped into the role so easily and was so comfortable taking my cues, it was like she’d been doing this her whole life!  I was so excited to get back to my editing desk and see that the images captured were even more amazing than the previews I was seeing flash across the back of my camera.  Not a model?  Pfffft.

Tatiana chose Del Valle Regional Park for the session, which I hadn’t been to before but am  most definitely returning to.  This large park nestled above Livermore has lots of beautiful rolling hills, a quiet lake, gorgeous old growth oak and sycamore trees, and some great country roads straight out of a Johnny Cash song.  It was early December but the fall colors were still vibrant, and the sky was draped with a thin veil of clouds that allowed the most amazing autumn light to filter through.  I really didn’t want the session to end!

On the way back to town we pulled in to a local vineyard for some twilight shots.  It was the perfect ending to Tatiana’s portrait session.  I’m looking forward to the next time I can add this Livermore gem to my itinerary – and Tatiana, the next time you feel like being a “really bad model,” my camera is ready. 😉

Lovin’ this light,
