Alaina's Pepperdine senior portraits were a meaningful opportunity to commemorate her four years studying, living, growing, and playing in this beautiful beachside town. Though the coronavirus pandemic cut her time on campus short, she (wisely) made sure to schedule some portraits in Malibu before the beaches and trails closed. The simple backdrop of a canyon trail in springtime allows Alaina's natural and youthful beauty to glow.
Congratulations Alaina, to you and your 2020 classmates on all you have worked for an accomplished!!
What an exciting summer Chrissy had! She got to visit Malibu to attend tennis camp and Pepperdine and while she was here, we snapped these beautiful senior portraits to commemorate her last summer before the end of high school.
We started out at Westlake Village Inn, exploring the beautiful gardens and pathways (perfect for when the sun is high in the sky) and finished up at my all-time fave, El Matador State Beach. Thanks Chrissy for coming all the way out to California just to shoot your Malibu senior portraits with me ;-)
(PS come to Pepperdine)
I love shooting senior photos at the Adamson House in Malibu because there are so many fun textures, colors, and backdrops to explore. From a sea foam painted greenhouse to vintage California tile work to endless blue ocean vistas, this place has it all.
With its acres of gardens, outbuildings, and prime beachfront setting, the Adamson House is the perfect setting for snapping a set of timeless portraits. Summer (with Mama and doggo in tow!) and I explored every nook and cranny of old Malibu estate and came out the other side with these gems.
Disclaimer: Summer snapped these during her freshman year of college, buuuuuut I'm still counting them in the senior portraits category.
Eric is a Malibu kid, born and raised, so what better spot to snap his senior portraits than at one of Malibu's many surf breaks. A little rock-hopping, a little wave-spotting, and a little smiling led to a beautiful set of photos that show Eric in his natural habitat.
Location: Point Dume Cove, Malibu, CA
El Matador Beach is always great for a fun senior session. Lots of rocks to sit, stand, lean on. And it's always my favorite when Mom jumps into a few!!
Congratulations on graduating from Pepperdine University, Sharon!
Braelyn is graduating from high school and what better way to memorialize that than a fun, beachy photo shoot!? We headed down to El Matador State Beach (my favorite photographer's beach) for some golden light and low tide shenanigans. Take a look!
Like these? I shoot lots of senior portraits! Malibu is full is incredible locations, from parks to beaches, to hidden fields full of ready-to-photograph natural landscaping (i.e. weeds). Shoot me an email and let's schedule an hour or so to make some great images together that you'll treasure for years to come.
I live in Malibu, Calif.,
