Makenna, a.k.a. “Baby Boggio” is super fun to photograph.  I’ve had the pleasure of shooting two of her older sisters for their Senior Portraits, and she is the last of the bunch!!!   If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve seen how busy I’ve been with shoots; so I’m a tad behind in getting things edited and blogged – soooo happy to finally get these up!  Jami did a great job on her makeup (especially that red lipstick!) and Makenna’s sisters and Mother are all hair stylists at Tranquility Salon and Spa, sooooo yeah = awesome hair!

We headed to Malibu to shoot her session, but we didn’t want the typical Malibu beach shoot… we wanted vibrant color instead so we stayed off the beaten path for most of it; although we did park her Uncle’s awesome vintage car on the beach for a few “Vintage” themed shots – which I LOVE.


And then we (well, her three sisters and her Uncle) hoisted her into this awesome tree 🙂  I posted the behind the scenes vid on instagram of that action LOL

My calendar is filling up for Fall shoots – here is the latest graphic for what is LEFT for 2014…… I’m also booking for SPRING 2015 if you want to wait until then to get your Senior Portraits done…. but you need to email or call asap to reserve a spot.


Once I’m booked, I will not open any more dates or be able to squeeze anyone in…

Happy 4th of July weekend, y’all!

xo, R

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.
