Another day, another sunset, another hour of golden light down at my favorite photographer's beach—El Matador State Beach.
On a beautiful cloudy morning in October, I walked onto Pepperdine's grassy Alumni Park with the pom squad for a team photo shoot. We were planning to just do a group photo and an individual for everyone, but once the girls' energy and personalities started showing through, it quickly turned into so much more.
Part location scouting opportunity, part portfolio builder, part networking time. A styled shoot is the photographer's version of a professional development day. Enjoy these images from a recent styled shoot with a bunch of camera-ready models, mind-blowing golden light, and crunchy fall leaves and grasses in Palo Comado Canyon.
I had a great time shooting October product photography for the launch of Honey & Oak, a women-owned artist collective that offers a monthly rotation of handmade, found, curated objects that fit a soulful, nature-guided theme.
