April was crazy busy for Lou and I at Santa Barbara Photography. We were fortunate to have the pleasure of working with so many wonderful families and so many amazing vendors. It's what makes our jobs awesome, being able to truly capture the personalities of our clients. In fact that's one of the most challenging aspects of what we do. Some Mitzvahs boys and girls are outgoing, some athletic, some intelligent, some artistic, no two are ever the same. We, as artists have to draw that personality out and capture it with our tools, cameras, lenses, lighting. What works for one mitzvah does not work for another. We also have to capture this in an artistic way so we have beautiful images to deliver to the clients that have entrusted us with capturing such an important milestone. Since I have already posted a slide show with some of the images we have captured during April's Mitzvah celebrations, here are some images from pre shoots associated with these mitzvahs.
