Sometimes getting the stars to align for your dream senior photo session is a little tricky. It took about 3 months and a dozen emails for us to squeeze in a session date during Jenny’s trip to Orange County for a softball tournament, but we were determined to make it work! And work it did… we were so lucky to have most of the beach all to ourselves. Braving a climb over a few rocks and dodging the surf with perfect timing rewarded us handsomely. Aliso Beach is one of those hidden gems that has surprises around every corner. From surf pounding on the rocks, to stone cliffs, to unique cliffside landscaping, and even a park with a perfect little fence, there are so many gorgeous backdrops to choose from. Not only that, but this beautiful beach is constantly changing thanks to the surf eroding and restoring the sand and rocks throughout the year.

You’d never know this hard working senior spent her day on the softball field, before getting glammed up for our beach session, she looks amazing! Softball tournament, family vacation, or even tagging along on Mom or Dad’s work trip, if you can find your way to the beach, we’ll find a perfect date that works and capture those senior portraits you’re dreaming of!

Ceilidh’s mom and I have been partners in crime, volunteering and having fun together for several years. So when I heard that Ceilidh was heading straight off to an internship with Walt Disney World  after graduation from Cal State Long Beach, I was super excited because we just HAD to take some senior photos at my favorite place in the world – Disneyland! We lucked out and the crowds were light and the rain held off just long enough. Good luck with your internship Ceilidh, I know you will ROCK it!! Also, I might be just a smidgen jealous that you get to live at Disney World. Just a smidge.

Have you booked your Class of 2016 senior photos yet? Be sure to give me a call before the year gets away from you! And Class of 2017 – time to start getting on the schedule!! I get TONS of requests for senior photos at Disneyland, and unfortunately a lot of times it’s just not possible because clients already have solid vacation plans for a date that just won’t work. Here are some quick tips if YOU are dreaming of a Disneyland senior photo session.

1 – Don’t plan on a Saturday, in the summer, right next to a holiday. It’s crazy in the park, and the heat – oy!! Crowds make it very difficult, and I do not usually accept bookings for Disneyland sessions from July 1 through late August, on any major holidays, Thanksgiving week, or the week from Christmas Eve until New Year’s Day for that reason.

2 – Do plan a weekday, during a slower time of year, in the morning. (And be sure to keep in mind when holiday decor will be up if you don’t want Senior Photos – Halloween/Christmas edition!).  I start Disneyland sessions right when the gates open, which gives us better light and the lightest crowds, and I am happy to give you some ideas of the best time of year to book.

3- Don’t plan on bringing your cap and gown (your sash or honors cords are fine), wearing formal wear (no prom dresses), bringing several outfits, anything on a hanger, curling irons, flat irons, or props of any kind (except anything you buy in the park – like Mickey ears :-). Park rules – you’ll be stopped at the gate and told to take it back to you car and that will cut in to our shooting time. *sad face*  Plus, you’ll want to travel light as we’ll be making tracks around the parks. Only bring what you can fit in a backpack that you’ll be ok carrying for 2+ hours.

4 – Do plan to bring mom (or dad). Any seniors under the age of 18 MUST have a parent book their session and have their parent with them during the entire session. No exceptions. Sorry, I know, lame, but it’s necessary.

5 – Do respect the Land and bring lots of patience. I cannot and will not block walkways, break park rules, or affect another guest’s experience in any way. No blowing glitter or throwing confetti, or any other mayhem that makes a mess, and no climbing into planters or other areas where guests are not permitted. And I am not willing to honor any requests otherwise. It’s my happy place… I aim to keep it that way. ❤️

It’s senior season again, and I’ve been back on campus at Cal State Long Beach for senior photos – Go Beach! That big blue pyramid and fancy dandelion fountains make CSULB my favorite college campus to shoot on. Unfortunately the fabulous fountains were off on this day, but we made the best of it! Working with seniors is so much fun, their amazing attitude of excitement and optimism is just contagious. You can’t leave a session with a graduating senior without a huge smile on your face!

I’ve known Sara, and Sara’s awesome mom, for several years. She’s an overachiever in the best way, a girl after my own heart, who conquers everything put before her and has such a kind, gentle, giving spirit. You’ve seen her around here before, she’s also worked as my assistant (and she’s a DARNED good one!). Even the squirrels love her, these little guys photobombed us looking for food and would. not. leave. (Fun fact, they have their own Instagram at @squirrelsofcsulb and Facebook page CSULB Squirrels how cute is that?)

I can’t believe it is already April – this year senior portrait season is flying by! It’s that time of year when seniors start getting SUUUUPER excited about packing up and heading off to college in just a few short months. There are so many little details to take care of, shopping for dorm decor, buying books, saying goodbyes, and rush photos! Did you know that most sororities will request that you submit portraits during rush, often times at least a headshot and full length photo? Of course you want to make the best first impression, and ensure that your photo stands out from the crowd and portrays your personality and style. If you skipped the senior photos, or maybe you’ve changed up your look since then and need an update, now is the time to squeeze in that recruitment portrait session. I try to make the process easy peasy, your gallery will remain online and when you know exactly what you need and are ready to order those gorgeous professional prints, I can pack those up and ship them off directly to you. I’ll be offering a limited number of sorority rush mini-sessions in Orange County this year, so be sure to get in touch and schedule your time today!
