I’m so excited to introduce my 2019 Model Team!!  I shared a few of the pics over on my Instagram highlights last month, but I always like to do a formal intro on my blog as well.  This group of young women are phenomenal and I cannot wait to start shooting their senior sessions and team shoots!!  

I wanted to take on a smaller number of models this year and I’m super happy with the 11 girls who decided to join me for Class of 2019 Ambassadors.  They will participate in team shoots throughout the year (in the past, we’ve done a Winter Solstice theme, a 90’s theme, and Sand Dunes to name a few) and they will also get the Experience Session as their senior portrait session!  We collaborate on that and tailor it uniquely for them …. I already have plans to go up to Santa Cruz for Kailey’s session which will be super fun!!

For this mini session, I wanted to keep the look pretty simple and clean; I knew I wanted to use a lilac background, so Jami kept the makeup fresh and dewy.  The beautiful wardrobe was provided by Kelsey’s Kollection – which is a pop-up store inside of Tranquility Salon (which is where we shot the session and also had stylists from there provide hair styling!)   *see the complete list of credits at the bottom of this post**

without further ado, introducing the 2019 #rbmodel team!

Josie is a 2019 Senior at SCVi Charter – and I’ve known her family for years 🙂 . I was lucky enough to shoot her older sister’s senior pics a couple of years ago, and I have shot her family’s portraits a few times now!  Josie loves horses and competes in horse showing at a national level; she is also very involved in show production at school.

I’ve also known Kailey for a LONG time … she is like my second daughter actually 😉  She and Avery have been friends since Kindergarten, so getting to shoot her senior pics is super awesome for me!!  (and a little emotional!) . Kailey is a 2019 Senior at SCVi Charter as well and is very involved in the ambassador program there.

Last, but not least, is Samantha – another cheerleader from Saugus High School!  I loved the colors of this outfit on her … and the background 😉  Can’t wait to shoot with her – and all of these amazing girls – again very soon!!!!

Class of 2019, it’s time to get on my calendar for YOUR senior shoot.  I have limited availability in July because I will be traveling, but there’s a couple of spots left … and some for August and early September as well.  Get in touch asap for all the info and if you reserve a session before June 15th, you get something pretty cool as well 🙂

    Thanks so much for all the amazing people who helped me make this mini model session a success!!

    and thanks to Reece Bowen for shooting the video for this!
