Sweeney Photography is now based in Santa Rosa California!!
It’s been a dream of mine to relocate to California for about 10 years now. Finally – the dream is reality! I’m super excited to get to meet and work with all of the wonderful people that live and work in Northern California. For now all of the sessions will need to be on location at your business or home or some fabulous spot that can only be found in our area. I’m looking into getting a studio soon but I’ve only been here for a week so please bear with me on that bit. Certain pages of the site have not been updated with my new location but it should be good to go soon. If you have any questions please give me a call!!
Here’s a snap shot from my very first day here in the Santa Rosa area. Crazy awesome hike, the ocean, and bouldering. Yes!! Bouldering!! Already found my favourite yoga teacher and can’t wait to try all the vegan food I can eat. Speaking of tasty vegan food – I’m off to enjoy some tonight!!!

“What’s your favorite type of photograph to take?”
I get asked this question a lot. Truth be told – I like everything. I love the once in a lifetime energy of wedding photography. Here are two people in love, surrounded by their families and friends, celebrating one of the biggest moments of their lives. Happy – Happy – Happy!! Then there are the kids and babies and pets. I love the spontaneity of these sessions. I love that they never worry about things like double chins when they give me a big smile. They just have fun!
What I love about photographing high school seniors is that they fall somewhere in between kids and weddings. I love that they have something to say and are willing to try new things. Senior Portraits are a way of presenting themselves to the world as a young adult. I love being a part of that. And while I’m being honest, they can hold a pose and I don’t have to sing “The Wheels On The Bus” … that often.
Here are some faces that have received a diploma and flipped a tassel over the past 15 years. I can’t wait to meet the Class of 2018!
Why do I need to update my professional business portrait?
Do you want to begin every new business relationship with a lie?
This sounds a bit over dramatic but it’s true. We have become a nation/world of highly visual people. Potential customers are using the internet to seek out professionals and companies for all of their needs. When they find you is the image you are using really who you are or who you were 10 years ago? When they walk into your business to meet you for the first time will they recognize you? If they don’t – what do you think that says to your new client?
Business portraits need to be updated every two years – minimum.
Call us today so we can help you put your best face forward!
