Let me introduce you to Kylee…this girl is AWESOME! She’s finishing up her senior year at West Ranch High School in the Santa Clarita Valley and will be attending Chapman University in the Fall.



Kylee loves a good cup of coffee and spending time at the beach. So, she had this amazing idea of going down to Abbott Kinney in Venice, CA, for her session. I couldn’t have chosen a better location to tell her story. It suited Kylee perfectly…artsy, eclectic, laid back…the picture-perfect Cali place for the quintessential Cali girl!



Kylee’s sweatshirt may say “Royal Pain” but this girl was anything but a pain.  Her session was just pure magic. She’s laid back and SO EASY TO PHOTOGRAPH! She brought along loads of clothing choices that suited her personality. Mixed in with the great location…there was no way this shoot was going to end any way other than fabulous!!




We finished Kylee’s session at the beach. In spite of the very chilly breeze, Kylee was a trooper and we had a blast! Doesn’t she look enchanting in this boho chic dress from Free People?


Kylee’s session included a “plus one” so Kylee invited her mom to join in on a few shots, which I thought was super cool! Kylee and her mom were simply a dream to work with. Special thanks, as always to Jami Cox, for making Kylee look like a million bucks while keeping her real!

as always, feel free to click and share these!

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.
