This is a PHOTO SHOOT where all you have to do is show up and look pretty, handsome, silly or all of the above! We will meet in the main square in front of the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel…you can't miss it…it's the big pink church! We'll chat for a few minutes and then we'll start capturing memories and telling your story! After taking pictures in front of the church, we will explore streets like Aldama, Recreo, and De los Chiquitos and depending on time, Juárez Park, which are all abundant with beautiful vistas and backgrounds. The focus of the portraits will be your bright and shiny faces, not the pretty colored walls and doorways! These portraits are about capturing you! A private group rate is available should you prefer to be the sole Captain of the session…ideal for families or a large group of friends, ie 4+ folks. Pets are welcome as well! ____________________ A personal note whether you book my experience, or not: Thank you for traveling and for being here! Our world would be a much more loving and better place if everyone traveled, so thank you for leading by example! I'm a huge Rick Steves fan, and have personally implemented his travel philosophy for 20+ years.

San Miguel de Allende is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will explore the main square highlighted by the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel and explore the town streets and parks while always on the lookout for our next portrait!
Where we go to take portraits will all depend on the group and your particular collective desires and/or physical limitations, if any. There is not a predesignated route that has to be followed…our shoot together is about having fun and me helping to capture your love and joy through portraits!
