Marlene R. | San Jose State Fun Fall Graduation Session

This set is a bit of a throwback, but it’s one of my favorites nevertheless! Marlene was so awesome to work with, and I so appreciated her mom helping w/ the session!

One of my favorite aspects of this senior session is confetti. Well, my last-minute DIY confetti. We wanted that shot where the grad blows confetti and everything looks perfect, but we didn’t have any. But I was determined to make it work. And that’s when I realized the yellow roses next to us would be perfect. Yellow is an SJSU color so it’s more festive than rainbow confetti IMO + biodegradable!

Here’s what Marlene had to say about our senior photo session at SJSU:

“My graduation photoshoot experience with Carla was awesome. I went on yelp to try and find a photographer that was willing to take my graduation photos near my school (SJSU). I became worried about finding the right senior portrait photographer for me, and luckily I found Carla D.A. Photography!

She was quick to respond with a quote and was willing to answer all of my questions. I appreciated the fact that she made me feel like such a valued customer that I went ahead and booked a date shortly after.
She was supportive of all of my questions and concerns up until the day of the shoot, which I very much appreciated because she was there to help things run smoothly.

Carla made me feel comfortable all throughout my shoot and offered kind advice on possible poses that would best suit what I was looking for. She improvised a great deal during the shoot and the results worked well in our favor (i.e. making her own confetti with flower petals). After the shoot, she quickly uploaded the best photos in her gallery and let me choose the ones I wanted at home. It took her only a few days to edit the photos and the results blew me away!

After my experience, I realized how kind, patient, and talented Carla truly is. I am excited to share these photos with the rest of my family and I can’t wait to book another photo session with her in the future.

I highly recommend Carla D.A. photography to anyone who is trying to find a skilled san jose senior portrait photographer”
