I’m so pleased to introduce Eva, another of my fabulous 2016 model reps for my #2016rbmodel and #reneebowenSEEN modeling team that I’ve shot this summer.   This is her senior portrait session — as a rep, she gets four sessions with me throughout the course of her senior year! I just love taking senior portraits in Los Angeles – we always have so much fun!

We had a blast shooting this West Ranch High 2016 senior – and would you believe this lovely lady is a rugby player?  Yeah!

Eva is incredibly down to earth and kind…such a pleasure to be around – she was such a trooper and was up for whatever I threw her way.. including laying on the ground 😉
Her mom came along for the session – she’s a doll! And, she shares the same name as me, so you know she’s awesome!

Eva’s hair is insanely amazing!  Like… I can’t even put into words…. I know Jami had so much fun doing her hair and makeup – although it took quite awhile to curl these locks, which stayed beautiful and lasted throughout the entire session, falling into perfect beachy waves at the very end.

I love the colors in this flower crown – it really brings out her eyes and is the perfect color for her skin/hair and clothing choices….. I made the flower crown while Jami was busy making Eva look smashing!

(Just ask, I’ll make one for you too!)

Eva brought along some great options for her shoot and man, was she super organized!!  (Her Mom may have helped with this! LOL)

I just love this sweater from Free People!!

We shot in and around one of my favorite beaches in Malibu.

We ended up staying until after dark, and saw an amazing full moon! Fortunately, I always carry my Wescott ice Lights in my backpack, so we were able to keep shooting even when we had lost the light. I always have these lights with me for shoots; they’re lightweight and are super easy to transport.

Check out Eva’s mobile app!!

ALL my reps get their own app and it’s also available in some of my #seniorportrait sessions too — just ask me how to get one!

Here are some more images from Eva’s session – as always feel free to share!

I’ve been SUPER busy shooting all my #2016rbmodel reps and summer is still crazy…in a good way!!  (And yes – I’m already getting 2017 Seniors asking how they can get on the team for next year! I haven’t released that info yet, so if you want to find out first, just get on the mailing list and I’ll be sure to let you know!)

There’s all kinds of fun ways to keep up with me — you can follow me on Instagram (@reneebowen), SnapChat (purtywun), and now Periscope!! You can catch my next Periscope broadcast by following me – reneebowen – I’ll be showing lots of cool shooting locations and even more of my #2016rbmodel and #reneebowenSEEN team members!   I’m always out shooting Los Angeles Senior Portraits these days 😉

Have you booked your session?

I can’t wait to shoot your photos……but, my sessions for the rest of the year are FILLING FAST — I only have FIVE left…. I’m also leaving town to teach in September and November… so my calendar dates are looking pretty slim. Email me if you’d like to find out how to have your own awesome photo session!!
