I just love this girl!! Talk about someone who is going somewhere … Sophia is smart, funny and beautiful – and wow did she bring it for her senior session at the Pasadena City Hall!! We chose this location because it is where her parents had their wedding photos done 🙂 Added plus? It’s a gorgeous backdrop!


I shot Sophia’s bat mitzvah, so I was super excited for her to come on as one of my #rbmodels this year. I adore shooting with her; she is a very old soul, this one. She knows herself and this comes through in her photos, which I love!


All of her outfits were great, but this black Free People dress …. OMG. It was MADE for her. We laughed because she tried so hard to stay away from all black, but it’s her favorite – something Jami and I can totally relate to!


She did bring in some color. I love this pop of red she brought …. dramatic and classic.


All in all, what a great session!!! I hope your last semester in High School is AMAZING, Sophia. It seems like it will go on forever, but it goes by so quickly! Enjoy all the moments … and I can’t wait to shoot your bff sessions and mini family session soon too (and more model shoots!) – it’s far from over!

Class of 2019 – if you reserve a SUMMER or FALL session before March 1st, you get something pretty cool – so hit me up to get all that info!

And Class of 2018 — let’s shoot in March! Hoping for rain and green fields!

    I’ll leave  you with a few more image from Sophia’s shoot. If you share them, please make sure to tag me. @reneebowen
