And now for something a little different…this is Amanda.
I shot photos with her last year for her 13th birthday in a gorgeous natural location. This year for her Freshman photos, Amanda wanted something more urban and edgy, so we had some fun.
I love how adventurous she is!
Amanda is a phenomenal soccer player, and as we were wandering around DTLA , we found this indoor gym where guys were kicking a soccer ball around. It was serendipitous so we asked if we could shoot a few in there … and they are were super cool about it. I absolutely love these shots.
We had such a fun day down in the LA Arts District. It was super special to be able to capture a few pics with mom! The canvases they got are beautiful and will add so much to their already beautiful home. We also created a stunning album that looks great displayed next to last year’s album!
You don’t have to wait until your senior year to have a photo session like this – I love working teens and have sessions designed just for them – documenting this special time in their lives. Adolescence if fleeting; before you know it, high school is over. The time between 12-17 is a time of massive change and growth! What a perfect time to document where you are at this moment….
Didn’t Jami do an awesome job with her makeup? We purposefully wanted to get a little more dramatic at the end – Jami likes to start natural, but then when we are doing more fashion/modeling images, it’s great to add a little more and just have fun with it. Really hoping Amanda submits some of these to modeling agencies … she is SO easy and fun to photograph.
She’s only 14!!!
Here’s a few more pics from her session! Be sure to tag @reneebowen if you share on social media!
