We headed out to Ventura for Calista’s session and found some really cool spots to shoot!  I love the murals we found right on the beach … 


I loved all of Calista’s outfits, but this little velvet two piece was sooooo perfect for these environments – and it was super comfy too 🙂  It might appear to be sunny and warm, but it was actually pretty cold, fyi lol – we had to keep Calista covered up in between shots!


and OMG how gorgeous is she?!  I’m pretty sure I had a top like this in the 90’s but I did NOT look this good in it 😉


But it was THIS wardrobe change that Calista really loved – she is allll about fitness and lives in workout clothes, so we had to get some shots of her like this!  Her dedication to working out is enviable (like seriously, she’s amazing)  These were super fun to shoot.


Finally, we headed down to the beach to freeze to death get more photos with that gorgeous sunset!

Ventura really does have the prettiest sunsets – this day was no exception; we might have been freezing, but it was worth it!!


SO many images that I love …. it was super fun hanging with her and her Mom and little sister!


I’ve still got a couple of dates open for Class of 2018, but you need to get in touch asap to reserve it; this time of year gets nutty because we are heading to the home stretch!  It’s almost time for graduation – which means graduation announcement time.  I’ll be knee deep in announcements soon, so hmu if you want to grab a Spring session.

And PROM is right around the corner too – I still have some open spots for Valencia, Saugus and West Ranch’s proms – with hair and makeup too!  We have so much fun doing these – but spots are limited – click HERE to grab one.
