Ryan: The Total Package

Ryan is one of those kids that just makes us adults feel like the future of the world will be just fine in the hands of quality youngsters like Ryan.  He is a strapping and handsome young man that is smart, courteous, athletic, and an achiever.

When we sat down with Ryan and his mom, Barbara,  during the client creative planning session, we worked out a plan that would include both an indoor photo shoot and and outdoor photo shoot that would be designed to deliver three types of images.  Ryan and Barbara wanted standard portraits for the yearbook submission in addition to lifestyle images that reflected his personality and passions, and then a set of family portraits.

Barbara and her husband David have a beautiful house in Nambe with lot that just makes this photographer giddy with its eye candy and textures perfect for outdoor portraits.  The day of the photoshoot couldn't have been
better...full colors and sunshine.

We performed the studio shots in their living room.  One thing Diane and I have worked hard at is carefully purchasing our studio equipment and making it portable.  That way we can perform almost any studio shoot at almost any location.  The second half of the photo shoot was performed in their backyard...or should I say back spread.  Gorgeous.
