Happy Friday guys!  Here’s Lexi – another of my 2018 Model Team!  We shot at the Pasadena City Hall for her session as well and had a gorgeous day; explored some parts of the city hall I had never shot in before as well.


How awesome is that skirt?  All of Lexi’s wardrobe flowed so well with our surrounding; love the white dress (you can’t ever go wrong with something like this!)   Jami did a beautiful job on Lexi’s already perfect skin – love what she did with Lexi’s hair as well; very simple but frames her face oh so wonderfully 😉


The architecture here is soooo pretty ….. we climbed up into the nooks and crannies of used all the space we could!   When thinking of a location for your senior portraits, there’s a lot to consider.  First, do you need a permit to shoot there?  If you aren’t sure, ask me and I can help find out; most of the time, it’s best for my clients to inquire (simply because Los Angeles has SO many photographers and most places think we are on a commercial shoot …. not a personal senior portrait session).  However, I do buy permits for certain places – they’re necessary (and as a professional photographer, I carry standard 1 million/ 3 million/ 1 million insurance coverage, so I can provide any venue with that info).  Remember that location is secondary to YOU, though …. you are the star of the show here – and the location is meant to simply help add more personal style and unique-ness to your shoot.   We will collaborate on the perfect location for YOU.


LOVE when seniors want to add sports/cheer, etc. to their session!  This is all about YOU and what makes you the person you are … Lexi has been in cheer for a long time and has been a leader at Saugus High Cheer all four years – she definitely wanted to include this in her session.  I always try to find a unique way to do this, so it’s not just your “standard” shot in your uniform 😉


I think these might be my faves …. something super classic about a sweater and jeans!  


Here’s more of Lexi’s session – we really got some great images and had a ton of fun with her and her Mom! 


I’m going to be announcing my PROM options very soon – so if you want to get info on that before it goes public, make sure you click HERE to sign up!   My 2018 and 2019 Model Teams get first dibs at times – and it will definitely sell out – so sign up now to make sure you get the info

(YES, we are doing the “Get Ready With Us” again for Valencia’s Prom …. not sure I have the interest to do any other Proms this way – but I will be SHOOTING the other Proms)
