So, Leivy was one of the FIRST clients I had in California! She answered a model call in the Spring of her junior year and I loved being her photographer so much that I invited her to be a senior model during her senior year at Atwater High. She chose to do her senior solo session as a destination shoot in San Francisco! And I couldn’t have been happier about it. All her photos in downtown San Francisco, as well as at Baker Beach turned out SO beautifully.
Ummm…… I’m a little behind on blogging….. Like two years behind………..
BUT, I couldn’t NOT blog about my session with Christine! Christine is a graduate of Gregori High School in Modesto and is now studying at CSU East Bay. She is also GORGEOUS and a really sweet person.
We had such a fun day running around San Francisco in Union Square and going to Baker Beach for some sunset photos. Her sister got to come with us and we even took a few shots with her.
I love destination shoots and LOVE being a destination photographer. San Fran is one of my all time favorite places because you can get SO many diverse looks in a relatively small geographic place.
Christine KILLED it and her photos looked amazing. So glad I can share a few of them with you.
These girls are so fun! They answered the call for Senior Models in the Central Valley of California from Atwater, Manteca, Turlock, Hughson, and Modesto- and were so great to work with for the 2017-2018 school year. It’s been so fun watching them all go chase their dreams and pursue their individual interests.
This session was a year ago!! AACK! I can't even believe it. You guys, I'm playing major catch up, but hopefully seeing the images can give you an idea of the variety of images I get. I had a HARD time narrowing the number of images down for Taylor because she is SO gorgeous.
We started off in Downtown Turlock, which is a location I ADORE! So many fun spots to grab photos!
Then we headed down to the river for some natural shots. This shoot was during the spring of 2017 when AAAAALLLLL the flooding was going on, so we got some amazing shots on the steps with Taylor's feet in the water. I was waist deep in the water, but it was WORTH IT!
I've been missing from this little corner of the internet for a bit! But I wanted to share Dani with you and the fun images we got. Dani is actually a Hughson High School graduate, but we decided to go up to Ripon for her session & check out Ripon Army Corps Park. That park, you guys! So many cool spots! We got some urban looking shots with the graffiti and a few shots up on the bridge, we got some by the river and on the trails as well. Seriously, such a great location.
We did hair and makeup in Salida with a great makeup artist, Aneesa. She gave Dani a really natural look with just enough glam for the camera.
Once we got to the park we started under the bridge and got some super cool shots with the graffiti and the pillars.
The rest of the session we tromped around the park and battled a few mosquitos, but ended up with an amazing final result.
AAHHHH!!! I'm excited to share these images with you guys! Leivy and I did a session a while ago and I wanted to share when she started her senior year at Atwater High School. I can't even tell you how easy Leivy was to work with. Not only is she naturally SUPER gorgeous and incredibly photogenic, but she is such a sweet person. I loved chatting with her as we ran around the Stanislaus State Campus. And, as you can see from the image overload below, we so many gorgeous shots that it was difficult for me to even narrow them down.
Leivy, I hope you have an INCREDIBLE senior year! And thanks so much for working with me!
Y'all, I have been so out of it this summer! Between my little ones home from school and the heat and the swimming and barbeques and friends and vacations and slurpees (who doesn't love a good slurpee, amiright?) WHEW! So exhausting, but so fun. And I've neglected my biz just a teensy bit. Does this happen to anyone else? Am I the only one who's brain seems to melt in the heat?
AAAAnywhooo...... getting back on track........... I did this session months ago, but I'm just now getting around to blogging about it. I just had to show you this amazing girl, though, because she is so phenomenal. The more I got to know her, the more I just LOVED Miranda. She is one of those girls that is really genuine and authentic and sweet, and I know that she will ROCK THE SOCKS off of her college years. She graduated from Hilmar High School with the class of 2017 and signed with Holy Names University in Oakland and will be playing Volleyball for them. I wish her the absolute BEST!
So................... some of you might not know, but included in the WVP Senior Experience is a wardrobe consultation. A few weeks before your photoshoot, I help you choose outfits that will compliment your personal style AND look amazing on camera. So, I got to rifle through Miranda's closet and we chose 5 or 6 outfits and then we headed to Turlock to shop and get a few accessories. She chose THE CUTEST beach dress as well as an adorable floppy hat that I totally wanted to keep for myself, you guys. How darling is this outfit?
On the day of her session, we were also lucky enough to work with an amazing hair and makeup team as well. HUGE shoutout to Teara and Alyssa, as well as LuxLounge in Turlock for letting us use the salon to get Miranda all glammed up!! Both Alyssa and Teara are so fun to work with and so talented. Check out Teara's instagram HERE, Alyssa's HERE, and LuxLounge's HERE.
After Miranda was all prettied up, we headed up to Knights ferry for her photoshoot! The spring flowers were all over the place and there were so many gorgeous locations. This was my first time to Knights Ferry and it DID NOT disappoint. Such a pretty place. #sorrynotsorry for the picture overload! So many gorgeous ones to share!
At her premiere night, Miranda and her parents opted for my top collection, which includes a gorgeous custom album, a large canvas, a senior slideshow, gift prints, all the digital images, and more. I dropped them off right before her graduation party so that they could be on display for everybody to see and enjoy.
Miranda, thank you for letting me be a tiny part of your senior year. I hope you loved the experience, the photoshoot, and the products. CONGRATS!!
Can you believe I'm playing catch up from October? I'm so behind! But, in my defense, I didn't actually have my website up and running in October, so I couldn't blog about gorgeous Paige. But, here we are! California! New name! New website! New blog! Hooray!
Part of the reason I'm posting some previous sessions is because I wanted to give you guys a glimpse in to what images from an entire session with WVP are like, and give you an idea of the variety of images you get to choose from when we work together.
But, more about Paige! Honestly, you guys, the camera LOVES this girl! Not only that, in the short time I've gotten to know her, I've seen what an exceptional young lady she is. She is crazy talented and so fun and witty. It was so great to have the opportunity to be her photographer.
If you're interested in booking a session, or learning more about the custom photography experience I offer, give me a call at 209-447-4820 or email me here.
Paige, congrats! I'm excited to see all the amazing things ahead for you!
