After seventeen years of living in San Diego I still jump for joy when I have beach sessions. When I drive to the beach the smell of the sand and sea hits my face as soon as I open the car door. It’s something I never gotten used to, as if I just arrived to my vacation destination without realizing the beach is only 25 minutes away. When Camryn requested to shoot her senior portraits at the beach I knew it was going to be successful before we even scheduled the date. The beach offers so many colors and textures that are a reflection of my work. Out of all the locations I shoot, the ocean is by far the most emotional.
Camryn is the typical southern California girl, great memories have been made at the beach with her friends and family, so it was important for her to really take in the ocean air and scenery. As I was shooting Camryn I would often say to her, “Look at the ocean and feel it…don’t just see it…feel it. And with her doing that I was able to capture the pureness of her personality. What a kind young lady full dreams and hearing her speak about her future is energizing. Seniors offer so much hope and Camryn will certainly do big things with her life.
Camryn, I wish you much luck and many memories as you head to Grand Canyon University! It truly was a pleasure to work with you and your family.
Hugs and love,
