Rylee said she wanted something different for her senior photos – she didn’t want the beach or any location local to Santa Clarita … she wanted green, florals, trees … not super easy to find in September in LA 😂

But when I suggested the Arboretum, she was totally on board and I absolutely LOVE how her images turned out!!

I’m not going to lie .. it was hotter than the surface of hell – like I’m not even kidding.  We nearly died. It was a sweaty day.  BUT it was worth it ❤️

That little blue dress was SO perfect for all the green we found – I really love shooting at this place and it’s HUGE by the way … we didn’t even get to all of it in a two-hour senior session; but omg how awesome is this next outfit?  That color and her hair 😱 (she had just gotten it dyed that color and it was GORGEOUS for the shoot).

Of course, Jami was there as usual for hair and makeup and all the touching up because … yeah, HOT.

We did come across the cutest buildings that not only gave us a whole different look and feel to her shoot, but also some much needed shade 😊

This girl is just gorgeous – plain and simple.  Anything she puts on is great. Anywhere I put her, she looks amazing – she is a natural in front of the camera and such a trooper.  I would not have held it together in those shoes and outfits with how hot it was!  She was just up for whatever and totally killed this session!

These last shots are some of my faves too because we got some beautiful light and I love all the colors!  We definitely got our steps in on the day we shot – next time I am for sure getting a golf cart 😂😂😂

Luckily I get to shoot with Rylee more often because she is on my 2022 Influencer Team and although this is a super busy time of year, I have some shoots planned for the team as we head into the holidays and 2022!

I’ve had several inquiries lately about Class of 2022 senior sessions but I do not have much open for Nov and Dec – in fact, only like two dates are open, so they will go quickly.  I do have January – March dates up too though and that’s a great time to shoot!

Reach out with any questions or click HERE for senior photo info – and HERE for the dates I have open!
