On this fine #seniorsunday and the first day of November, I have miss Bella on the blog today!  You are gonna love her Malibu senior session!!

We shot at one of my favorite locations down in Malibu and had the most gorgeous warm glow (from fires lol) – which complemented Bella’s hair color and choice of tones for wardrobe so well.

The reason I love this location so much is mainly that it is super easy to access and has a few different spots, so even though we are on the same trail, the images don’t all look the same.  That’s important to me because I think your session should have as much variety as possible, without costing us hours of time.

And because of the warm sky, we got such gorgeous fall colors – that we usually don’t see in California!

It’s been super fun having Bella on my Influencer Team this year; although we’ve had to modify some of our get-togethers, I’ve still been able to create some team experiences that the girls have really enjoyed.  It’s also fun to Bella on the team because I’ve known her and her family since she was in elementary school 🙂

The other reason I love this spot is because it is super close to a cute little beach that’s rarely busy, which is pretty awesome for Malibu.  LOVE the colors in the sky we had 🙂

Jami did a phenomenal job on Bella’s makeup and hair – the tones complemented her wardrobe (which I also loved) as well as the environment.  ‘Twas a great day all around!

I’m going to be shooting a TON all the way up until Christmas. So many seniors that I don’t really have time for family sessions (if you are a regular family client, get in touch asap so we can schedule something; otherwise, I will not be offering minis).

Class of 2021 will be getting most of my attention – and I’m also booking into March right now, so fill out the form below if you are hoping to get info on sessions with me.  I’m getting pretty booked.

AND Class 0f 2022 is almost up, so I’ll be looking at getting my 2022 team together soon …. if you are interested in that, make sure you go HERE to get on the VIP list – and feel free to share that with anyone as well.
