School Portraits - Encinitas

So last week I was emailed proofs of Sophia's school pictures and we all agreed we liked the first one best, but we all knew we wouldn't be buying any of them. I wish I could give you the comparison to show you why.  

I am so glad that I have made it a point every year to take her school portraits.  There's nothing fancy about them.  I like to keep them simple but a little bit more creative.  I usually photograph her right outside my front door with a chair, globe or a stack of old books.  I never use a flash, just the great light mother nature provides.  I am always so glad I did it!

Do you ever wish you had school pictures that portray your child the way you see them, not the stiff-necked student with those crooked smiles and clumps of unruly hair?
