I have been SO excited to share this session, but had to wait until the March Challenge was announced….   I’m a part of a select group of photographers from all over the country who are participating in We Are The SEEN’s monthly photography challenges – they are themed and meant to push us creatively.

The theme for March was Entourage (I loved that show and can’t wait for the movie to come out!)  So I had the idea of taking Alexa (my Senior’s Ignite winner and one of #the12 – and her best friends down to Hollywood for a little fun.

These guys KILLED IT.

I didn’t want the session to be too staged… I wanted it to reflect a real day and night of friends out in L.A., so more editorial in nature.  They fell into the session perfectly and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it all turned out…. and as bonus, my submission was chosen as “StandOut SEEN” top image and featured on the site today — super stoked about that!

Alexa, Jenna, Chloe, Kennedy & McCall — thank you guys for spending such a fun day with me and bringing this vision to life!

We started at Griffith Observatory (and it was chilly and windy!)

and then we headed down to Hollywood Blvd., where they were just finishing up a premier for Avengers

(we missed Chris Hemsworth by minutes!)

Seriously so much fun!!  They caused quite a scene 😉   These guys just about lost their minds when they saw the girls and asked for a pic lol!

All in all, it was great — and we took lots of selfies 😉

I’ll be participating in these monthly challenges all year — my SEEN level models will have the option to hop in on some if they want, but I am also looking for high school underclassmen & also collegiate peeps for these (ages 15-20) so be sure and sign up for my mailing list and I’ll send you the info!

request SENIOR PORTRAIT pricing & get on the list

If you're into moody portraits, 90's nostalgia, great wine, Taylor Swift, memes I find funny + probably way too many videos of my cats? You've come to the right place.
