Mia Class of 2017 High School Senior Session with Guitar

In Mia’s second shoot, we focus on her guitar. She has been taking guitar lessons at school during her senior year. Practices daily and has gotten so good.
DSC_7463 copyDuring the shoot, we had three locations for a 90 minutes session. I had this planned out before hand so it could be really quick. DSC_7347DSC_7421DSC_7428I found this building that was so colorful and perfect for the guitar images. DSC_7371DSC_7383 croppedDSC_7435DSC_7442After taking guitar images, I switched  Mia over to a dress that she wore for homecoming party during her junior year.

Prom Photography – High School Senior

One Saturday afternoon, I went with my lovely Step-daughter, Hayley to pick out her prom dress. We went to so many places and just as we were about to give up, we went in to Lili’s of Beverly Hills. The moment Hayley slipped into this gown, we knew it was the one that looked great on her & she felt special in it.

Although they’re not dating, they are good friends. 005 Logo 016 Logo We did your typical backyard photos but at a gorgeous home in Pacific Palisades that looked more like a park. 017 Logo 020 Logo 022 Logo 026 Logo 028 Logo 011 Logo DSC_3760Last photo is father and daughter together!!! ADSC_3847 Horizontal cropped

Megan – Vintage Cameras, High School Senior Portraits

During my consultation with Megan, I discovered her love of photography and got to see her fabulous collections of vintage cameras. What fun it was to include her cameras in her senior session at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. ADSC_2678 logoADSC_2724 LogoADSC_2937 Logo011 adjustmentI had fun with this image.

Hayley – Class of 2015 High School Senior Photography

Two things make this senior session extra special for me. 1. Hayley is my Step-daughter. 2. We photographed Hayley’s Senior Session in Finland!! Hayley’s Dad is from Finland. Since Hayley was baby she has gone almost every summer to Finland. This year, she is now a Finnish Citizen. Hayley has dual citizenship. Making it easier for her to live or work in Europe. 001Logo002 LogoThe above is a courtyard located at Turku Castle. A 13th Century Castle!

Mississippi Girl in So. Cal – High School Senior Photography


Recently, I had a senior on vacation from the great state of Mississippi, Madison, she wanted a truly unique senior session (that would be different from any of her classmates). I picked the The Lab/Anti Mall in Costa Mesa, California for an urban shoot because the vibe is very artsy and has a hipster feel to it. Madison really got in to the spirit of our shoot; the outfit she put together for the trailer was very boho chic!
