Meet Maddy, another member of my #rbmodel team! We got a TON of awesome photos from this shoot, so I hope you’ve got a few minutes, because you’re going to want to see them all!


Maddy is super fun and literally the sweetest!  She wanted something different for her session – and opted for a destination shoot at the historic Pioneertown Motel.    This place is seriously the coolest thing EVER.  The rooms do not have TV’s and although it looks pretty rustic from the outside, the inside of the rooms are SO NICE.  Very hipster cool and totally meshed with our vibe.  We stayed the night after we shot and had a fabulous dinner together, as well as a stroll underneath the stars – the sky was AMAZING out there!!

Can we talk about her wardrobe??? All the clothes for her shoot are from her favorite store, FreePeople!


Her mom, Liz styled pretty much everything with Maddy –  and it’s pretty much all from their own closets lol … they both have killer style. (BTW, you may have heard me talk about Liz – she is the brow QUEEN! You should definitely go see her at Mascot Aesthetics for waxing, microblading or a facial!  The store is absolutely adorable too – filled to the brim with so many awesome goodies. I had her do my microblading and I am SO happy with how they turned out – it’s literally amazing to just walk out of the house without having to draw in my brows … seriously life changing!)

I love this shot …. Joshua Trees are my fave


Okay – how comfy does this outfit look?! I think I need one of those jumpers.


I love the color pop in this dress – and that light!  There is nothing better than that end of the day desert light….


We had such a great day shooting and then this amazing sunset happened!  The colors were incredible.  I used my icelights for some of these to make sure I had enough light on Maddy while still getting all the colors of the sunset – we shot this right off the side of the road lol …


Here’s the rest of Maddy’s session. If you share them on insta, be sure to tag me! @reneebowen
