Guys, meet Claire!   She is one of my amazing 2017 #rbmodels as well – and the SWEETEST thing ever.  She’s a dancer and also very involved with ASB at school (Valencia High)

We shot these at the Pasadena City Hall …. she wanted more of a contemporary vibe – and the architecture there is stunning – like Claire!   Can we talk about her Julia Roberts smile?!  I mean seriously.

And yes …. she was photobombed by Cinderella lol … had to include that shot 🙂

I loved everything she brought for wardrobe – this white number worked so well with the background here….love that last one of her – so pretty!

Now ….this dress is STUNNING.  We had a lot of fun twirling and moving in it (if you’ve shot with me, you know how much I love movement as opposed to stagnant shots) — and dresses like this are perfect for that.

The light was just gorgeous as well ….. y’all know I love me some backlighting!

and l just adore this top with those shorts — we got a LOT of different looks and they all fit her personality so well.  That’s the whole point …. don’t stress about finding outfits that are so far outside of your comfort zone; stay true to you and find pieces that tell YOUR story.

Claire really pulled this last outfit off so well — a more upscale way to dress up some ripped jeans and give it a fall vibe!
