Gerardo – UCLA Graduation Portraits

Epic natural light senior portrait session at UCLA

It’s easy to take amazing portrait weather for granted, living in Los Angeles. After all, we get 300 days of perfect sun. This session was a bit of an experience to the contrary, despite how sunny it looks. Due to weather conditions, Gerardo and I ended up doing two half-sessions. It suddenly got crazy windy midway through our first attempt, to the point where it was getting hard to stand still and communicate. We rescheduled for another day and finished up where we left off. Pretty cool how it’s hard to tell huh? Overall, we went for a epic style that I think Gerardo pulled off extremely well. I love alternating between all the different styles of posing to create different styles of portraits. Check out the rest of the session below, including a little furry guest that came in midway!

Fun fact: Gerardo will be speaking at TEDxUCLA this coming April, so you’ll see him there!
