If you’re looking for a great local photographer for family photos, we found a wonderful one!
After chasing my kids around, trying in vain to get some good photos, I finally gave up and called in the pros!
Shawnicy Barnthart takes beautiful maternity, baby, children, and family portraits in and around Santa Cruz. She has a sweet little set up at her home in Ben Lomond, check out the adorable new “green chair” she uses for some sittings on her website! She is willing to come to you as well.
She met us for a short hike out to our favorite spot in the forest and was so patient and just wonderful with the kids! Monkey is extremely camera shy, I mean he literally runs and hides when he sees a camera! She made him feel comfortable, and was great at coaxing him to look up, and even smile! How does she do it when his own mommy can’t??
He loves to know how things work, so she even showed him her camera, explained the parts, and how it works. She’s so sweet and took her time with us, which is saying a lot! I’m sure it took a great deal of patience to deal with our family! If Monkey was actually looking, not trying to hide under his hat, one of us parents was looking down! We’re not used to being photographed and were most often looking at the kids to make sure they were looking!
Somehow she managed to get some great shots!
|OMG, we’re all looking! And Monkey’s even smiling!!|
We had a lot of fun and the pics turned out gorgeous! Her prices are ridiculously low, too!
