Hey guys, meet Lauren, another of my 2018 #rbmodels!


We shot her session out in Malibu, like I do many of my #rbmodel sessions. Honestly, I think I should just get a beach rental out there for the summer … we’re there so often, lol! I’m only half joking 😉


Jami kept her awesome (and thick!) hair from getting too wild (even at the beach with humidity!) and I just love what she did with her makeup! We typically like to keep our senior clients looking fairly natural, with just a hint of color – and Lauren has THE perfect face for makeup.


Her outfits were killer and super complimentary to the settings for her session. (Mostly Free People)  I love the looks we were able to get at both the natural hiking location and the beach!

The cool thing about shooting your senior portraits in Malibu is that it can look very different, even just a few days apart. You just never know what kind of skies you’ll get. In Lauren’s case, we got some super pretty sunset looks at the beach later in the day.


Here’s some more of Lauren’s session – be sure to tag @reneebowen when sharing on social media!!

Pssstmy senior model program is changing a bit …. I am switching things up a tad. I’ve just got SO many girls who want to be a part of it and I WANT to take everyone, but alas, it’s a LOT of work. So I am revamping it just a little. If you know someone who is interested in joining me, please make sure they fill out this form and get on the list! I will be contacting everyone in early January about the Class of 2019 Model Team!

This year has been AMAZING …. truly.  I can’t believe we are already bringing 2017 to a close, but here we are!  All of my clients are so incredibly special to me – I am so grateful for you all!  2018 is already gearing up to be just as epic – but I will most likely be taking a few less clients next year …. so if you are a 2019 Senior, make sure you are on my mailing list  because I am only offering a limited number of spots for senior models AND clients in 2018 …. and only taking on a handful of weddings.  I already have a few branding clients on the books, but I also have spots open for that – so hit me up if you need a whole new look for your site/business!

I am COMPLETELY booked until late January – these next couple of months are pretty nuts but I REALLY want to get some more 2018 Seniors on the books before the Class of 2019 is up!   SPRING is a great time of year to shoot!

….. so hit me up if you want a killer session sometime between January and March.  (still hoping someone wants a SNOW session!)
