Bay Area Senior photographer/ Olivia’s boho beach shoot

Beautiful Olivia was simply AMAZING to work with on this Gypsylovinlight inspired photoshoot at Dillan Beach. In case you’re not familiar with Helen Janneson Bense a.k.a. Gypsylovinlight, she’s an Australian beach goddess that rules Instagram with her beachy style and layers of gorgeous jewelry and flash tattoos. Olivia owned this shoot with her stunning natural beauty and easy California vibe! Wardrobe and flash tattoos for this shoot are from the lovelies at OOH LA LOFT. Makeup by MAC. Jewelry by GRACE BIJOU and Spell Design Australia. Olivia is a Senior model  for me representing the Class of 2016 and is a Senior at St.Vincent’s Petaluma! This blog post is part 1 of 2. Coming up…… the sky blue gown on the beach. Olivia in this dress , on the beach, needs a post all to itself


Sonoma county senior portrait photographer/ Marissa’s california beach shoot

On the most amazing beach day ….. that means sunshine and no wind, Marissa, Cindy ( Marissa’s Mom) and yours truly set out for Dillan Beach. We had been planning our shoot for several weeks and I had been busy making some props like the Indian Headdress and the teepee just for our shoot! We loaded up my mint green beach cruiser and tons of adorable clothes and accessories and headed out. Marissa seemed like she had been modeling forever and was a delight to work with! We styled quite a few different looks from Vintage with the beach cruiser, American Indian (super fun), Marissa in her bathing suit running down the beach (she runs track at school) and simply Marissa (her own style).
