Sophie's Flowery Senior Portrait Photo Shoot - Atascadero Senior Portrait Photographer

class of 2017 - senior photos - atascadero senior photographer - Studio 101 West Photography
Last year I shot Sophie's sister's senior pictures at the beach and it was so foggy that her dad was worried that we wouldn't get any good photos. Dad was blown away with how beautiful they turned out so of course they came back for their younger daughter's senior portraits. Sophie wanted her senior photo shoot to be with sunflowers so we found this amazing patch of flowers just a mile or so from the studio. We also shot a few portraits around town in different outfits to round out her photo selection. Sophie and her parents loved the photos! Here's just a few of the ones they picked. Check out the video below to see more.

Atascadero Family Portrait Session In The Oak Woods - Family Portrait Photographer Dennis Swanson

Some of my favorite pictures from a recent Atascadero family portrait session with the Calmiere's. For this photo shoot we chose a nearby park that offers plenty of oak trees and an occasional patch of green. A few years ago I got to sing a couple of duets with the youngest daughter, Megan in church musicals so it was a special shoot for me.

Congratulations to the Templeton High School Senior Class of 2016 - Templeton Senior Picture Photographers

It was a pleasure photographing the entire senior class at Templeton High for the yearbook's senior panorama. We are privileged that a bunch of you picked our studio for creative, individual outdoor and studio senior portraits. From local beaches and parks to remote ranches, in the studio or just around town we had many fun photo shoots and got some outstanding photos that we hope you will always cherish. Good luck to you all and may God bless.

San Francisco Photo Shoot Coming Up - For 2017 North County High School Seniors

For a high school senior photo shoot that you will never forget, there's nothing like the city of San Francisco! The cable cars, the waterfront, the architecture, the bridges, and the graffiti are all there to help make the most unique and amazing senior portraits that your family will cherish, and your friends will envy. 

On Saturday, May 7th we will load up the van with photo gear, my assistant, and three lucky high school seniors for an all day trip to the city for a series of fun and exciting photo shoots. 


Because space is so limited this offer is only open to 2017 graduating high school seniors that currently attend Atascadero, Templeton, or Paso Robles High Schools. To be included in the SF trip you pay $75 more than our regular outdoor session fee and a $300 deposit, which goes toward your order.


If you're interested in joining us contact the studio right away to see if there are any spots left.

Templeton High School Senior Portrait Photographer - Photo Shoot at The RR Tracks

Templeton Senior Portrait Photographer - Studio 101 West Photography
The train doesn't go through Templeton very frequently, but we got lucky during Damian's senior portrait session in Templeton the other day. You can hear the train coming for miles so we were clear of the tracks well before it went by. Damian's mom was thrilled that we got some shots with the train going by.

Senior pictures should say something about who you are. Damian brought several shirts and a jacket to wear during the photo shoot and was not planning on doing any in the black t-shirt, but when I noticed he was a weightlifter we took several shots with just the t-shirt and they turned out to be some of their favorites.

It had been a year or so since I used this location, but I was pleased to find some new spots that worked very well and I'm excited to go back to use these again and look for some new ones.
