Smart, Stylish and Sophisticated | Sonoma County Senior Portrait Photographer

Meet Lauren F. A gorgeous, impressive young woman who braved the cold and the wind at Dillon Beach, in Northern California, for her senior picture photo session.  I knew as we drove up that it was going to be tricky…but with hair, makeup and wardrobe prepared for the evening shoot, we had to press forward! Lauren was SUCH a trooper! She was a natural model and super easy to shoot–the wind and flying sand caused actual beach photos pretty near impossible, but we found a sheltered little area that worked for pictures, while her freezing mom and little brother waited patiently in the car. Lauren was such a pleasure to work with and we came away with some great shots!

    Wonderful photographs. You captured some great expressions!

  2. Jenn says:

    Wow, these are gorgeous photographs. This girl must be so happy with them! You can’t tell it was cold at all. In fact, I love how her hair is blowing a bit in the wind.

  3. Lori says:

    Love the colors and variety! The wind in her hair give the photos a dynamic look. My favorite is the 2nd to last photo of her close up and smiling.

  4. Christina says:
