We started Maya's session at the now closing Dimple records in Folsom. This place was iconic for all of those who grew up here and I am so sad to see it close. I am so glad I got to do one last shoot here! Maya is a music lover so this location was perfect for her.
We later went to another iconic location- Sunflower drive in in Fair Oaks. Maya and her friends went here for their prom dinner! So of course we had to capture her in her prom dress. It was fun to see all the patrons watching thinking that this was for some magazine or something.
We ended the day in the pool, which is probably typical for this girl. She has been on the swim team and teaching swim for quite sometime. It is probably safe to say Maya spends most of her time in the water! I love creating artwork around my clients interests and hobbies. It makes the session so much more memorable. The day was scorcher but we had the pool to look forward to. Every moment I get with this gal is always so incredible...
We started Sydney's senior portrait session in the Almond orchards. Her outfits went so perfectly with this backdrop. She reminds me of Paris Hilton in some of these shots! We then traveled over to the river front and got some really amazing shots by this big glass buidling. Sydney will be attending fashion school i the fall and you can just tell by her outfits that she is made for it!
It makes my heart soar when family reaches out to me to photograph their milestones in life. I love being part of this special time and I so appreciate them trusting me to capture it! Little Gabe turned 1 and boy is he the sweetest kid ever! He can be pretty shy but once he warms up to you he is such a little lover. I savored every time he reached for me and gave me big hugs.
All I can say about Hannah is amazing things! We had the most fun at our session. Her mom and gramma were both there and boy did we have the time of our lives. We got goofy, real goofy. I think you can tell by her expressions in her senior photos how much fun she had!
We explored K street in downtown Sacramento. Her style went so well with the Crest Theatre and everything K street represents. Her session came with a styling session with Ambiance Boutique in the Placerville, where she got a bunch of these awesome clothes!
This girl has exploring in her blood she even has a tattoo if it.
I feel like we really captured who Miss Hannah is during this session. She will look back in 20 years and remember exactly what she was like from these pics!
I try to kick off a new senior season every year with a fun themed shoot with my model team. To get the incoming class pumped for their upcoming senior year! This is your year and I want you all to feel so special during it.
Every year I have a group of amazing ladies who want to get more out of their senior experience than just one session. They become my models and represent me on social media and at school and in return they get to do fun shoots throughout the year like this! Make sure if your a junior this year you watch out for my model call in the fall for class of 2021! We meet up before the end of Junior year and decide on a theme. I like it to be collaborative effort and include the girls in the decision. I love that we decided on the 1950's Diner theme this year.
First birthdays are a big freaking deal! Your baby is one and this could be the first professional photo you have taken with your family! You might have taken newborn photos but more than likely you barely remember them from being in that newborn fog and you probably were not feeling your best that day. This day is just as much about you as it is about the little person you created. You are starting to feel like yourself again and hopefully settling into this thing called parenthood. It is time to celebrate the whole family!
For Cullen's first birthday session mama wanted to celebrate his birthday being in October by obvi going to Apple hill! What else do you do when you live half hour away from one of the prettiest places in Autumn! He did such a good job snuggling mommy and daddy but he really found his groove once he found the apples and cake!
The many faces of Cullen and that flirty head tilt had my ovaries hurting for sure!!
