Santa Clara University | Karla | Bay Area Senior Portrait Photographer

SCU college graduate with graduation cap and boyfriendKarla’s senior session at Santa Clara University remains one of my favorites of all time. Karla was SO sweet, and her family was absolutely adorable! I am so glad she reached out :). She said when she saw our names were the same just spelled differently, it was a sign! Totally agree.

I loved how she incorporated her culture into her outfit and accessories! Decorating your grad cap and getting a custom stole can really add so much meaning to your photo session. Bonus: if you decorate your grad cap with rhinestones you can glimmer in the light!

We were so lucky that all the roses were in bloom on the day of our shoot! The roses are one of the top features of Santa Clara University, along with the beautiful architecture!

It was so lovely that Karla could have her family there with her & supporting her. I was so happy that her husband came along, so we could get some adorable couples photos in too!

Here’s what Karla had to say about our session!

“Carla is a very talented and professional photographer.  I booked her to take my graduation pictures and all the photos were beautiful!!

This was the first time I hired a photographer and I did not know what to expect.  I initially was not going to take any pictures since I am not used to taking self-portraits and was discouraged after learning that my graduation ceremony had been cancelled, but as I started to prepare for this photoshoot I got excited and was looking forward to commemorating this big milestone.

The photoshoot reminded me that a lack of ceremony does not necessarily mean a lack of achievement and that this moment deserved to be celebrated.

Thank you Carla for your amazing work, time, and dedication.  The grad session turned out much better than I expected.  The shoot was fun and memorable.  Thank you for making me and my family feel comfortable in front of the camera 🙂

Not only did I have a good experience during the photo session, but I also appreciated the fact that Carla is very responsive through email as well as the quick turnaround time she took in getting the proofs and final pictures ready.

She is a very talented photographer.  I highly recommend booking Carla D.A. if you are looking for a photographer in the Bay Area :)”
