Meet Shelby. When we met at her design consultation, Shelby said she wanted a look that was soft and romantic. We got just that. She was wonderful at galloping through the tall grass (and stickers) to get that carefree look. Great job Shelby! Here are some faves.
Meet Kolbie – class of 2013. A lovely day for senior portraits, Kolbie braved her way through many mosquitos to get these fabulous shots. Thanks for all the dancing and jumping, you were great! Here are some faves.
It’s that time again! We are looking for a select few energetic fans or our work to represent our studio for class of 2014 high school seniors. Just fill out the information HERE and we will send you all the information about the benefits of our Spokesmodel program. We will just have a few Spokesmodels per school so apply soon!
Meet Arianna, class of 2013. Just a couple of times per year, I photograph senior portrait sessions at Preston Castle in Ione. The place is just wonderfully dilapidated and a perfect place for a session like this.
I’ve known the Carvalho family for a while and knew that between Stephanie’s (mom) makeup skills and Arianna’s styling, we would be in for an adventure. I thought doing a bit of a concept would be fun and had some ideas I shared with Arianna. Of course she just ran with them. Our “story” was the girl who always played dress up and could only imagine herself with wonderful wardrobe/hair & makeup. Time of course got away from us (it always does) but we all had an incredible experience there. Thank you Arianna and Stephanie for your efforts (and impromptu wardrobe rack), I had such a great day. Here are some faves.
Nicole had a special look in mind for her senior portraits and I was totally on board. Day of the session, the weather was fantastic and everything that could have gone right…did. Perfect wardrobe, and Nicole was wonderful in front of the lens. She even braved the pond, pollywogs and all. Thank you Nicole for the adventure.
Meet Alyssa. Alyssa decided to have her senior portraits made at the lovely Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. Gorgeous weather (of course) and perfectly planned wardrobe with the help of mom (Rene). We started inside and just wandered the hallways, staircases and huge rooms in the Del. As the sun started to set we moved outside for more fun in the sand and surf. Alyssa’s hair performed perfectly in the wind as she danced around. Such a great session. Here are some faves.
This was a very special session as Jordan came all the way from Republic, Missouri for her senior portrait experience. She found us through a mutual friend on Facebook and just had to come out. We booked the session several months in advance, did some clothing consulting via phone/text message, and worked out the details and looks. Everything looked good until about a week before the session, and the weather looked like rain. Everyone was on pins and needles but the plane tickets were already set so the session was on rain or shine. It rained for several days, then magically cleared up the day of the session, and returned the day after…crazy! Everything that could have gone right did, with perfect patches of flowers, gorgeous light, cooperating butterflies, and a great hair day for Jordan. Thank you Jordan, LaRae (mom), and Molly for such an incredible experience.

Meet Ariahna. When we met for Ariahna’s design consultation, I knew this was going to be a fun session. She brought all kinds of ideas to the table and it was a great brainstorm for photo inspiration. The session felt more like a fashion editorial than senior portraits…perfect! Fantastic wardrobe and styling, Ariahna did a wonderful job assembling her look, and those candles…
Thank you for the fun adventure! Some faves.
Meet Savannah. We decided on Old Sacramento as the location for Savannah’s senior portraits, a perfect setting for her diverse wardrobe. As we wandered the streets and alley ways, we both found all kinds of interesting places to make photos. Brick, ivy, twinkle lights, old buildings…it was almost distractingly beautiful. Savannah was great at blending in with the environment & mood, and was perfectly comfortable in front of the lens. Thanks for such a wonderful day! Here are some faves.
