Senior Portrait OutdoorsCalifornia Countryside

 

It’s beautiful in the local parks right now. :-) It won’t be as the weather gets warmer. Most Orange County residents are so busy they never find time to hike in our local wilderness parks, but photographers do. Our parks get very dry and brown once the rainy season is over.
This is the PERFECT time for senior portrait photos.

Mahina is a native Hawaiian girl (currently living in Costa Mesa) with that beautiful glow Hawaiians all seem to have. Is it the warm sunshine, the sandy beaches, or the blessings of Pele that bring out this beauty in Hawaiians? Or is it simply the Aloha Spirit? Whatever it is, Mahina glows with it. She is confident, poised, and gorgeous. She has already overcome many hurdles in life and received many blessings and I know she has nothing but success ahead.

I enjoyed photographing her so much as we wandered through one of Orange County’s wilderness parks taking in the beautiful light and spring green. Next year she is headed to New York for college, a big change from Hawaii and Southern California. They’ll be so lucky on those cold winter days to have her warmth and charm!

Lizzie is a beautiful girl from Arizona, shy, but totally fun! She and her mom flew into Orange County to have me take her senior portraits and I was excited to meet her! We had a special photo planned. In it she would sit on a rocky area as the sun sunk below the horizon line.

When I got to the beach, the tide was higher than I wanted it to be and I knew it was coming in, not going out, but I also knew I could still take the photo at sunset, the rocks were still well above the water. First I wanted to take some fun shots of her walking along the beach and so forth while we waited for the sun to get low. All went well and Lizzie was proving to be a lot of fun to photograph, she’s got a really cute personality.

Nearing the end of our wait, I asked her to sit on the rock I was planning to photograph her on later. Her hair was perfect and she was smiling beautifully, when out of nowhere a huge wave hit the rock and splashed water all over Lizzie! Talk about shocked!!! It literally took my breath away! Her hair was soaking wet and her outfit was pretty damp, too! Naturally, we laughed our heads off! I waited a bit and it happened again! Which meant I had to quickly find another spot for our photo finale. So we scrambled over the rocks (picture me scampering over the rocks camera in hand with a much younger wet Lizzie right behind me) and found a dryer spot just in the nick of time. Whew! A photo session to remember!
