Each year I am fortunate to have a few seniors make the long journey from Alturas, CA to Redding, CA for their senior portraits!  Haley, Kim, and Charlie thank you so much for making the trip!  Also, thank you for letting us do the shoot on Friday instead of Sunday as we had originally planned.  It worked really well, considering I was up with friends all night for my good friend, CJ’s 40th birthday party. lol.

Anyhow, Haley…you remind me so much of my sister, must be the hair and hippie vibe you had going on.  Loved your look and your super sweet personality.  Kya and I both enjoyed our time out in the fields with your girlies!

Love the pink lace romper you picked up the day of the shoot over at PacSun!  So stinking cute!  I want it! lol!  Also, loved that you had several outfits to choose from!  Something I am noticing too, thought I would point out if anybody is reading this!  People who book for meadow shoots don’t really need to worry too much about shoes.  Most of the time your feet are hidden by the tall weeds.  Best bet would be to bring a pair of boots for the dry grasses!  However, a cute pair of shoes could be brought and we can shoot in a flattened spot of weeds.

Oh, last shot was shot by Kya Solorio!  I through her into shooting after the shoot had ended.  Just set the exposure for her and asked her to create a image.  She did great, one of my faves of the day.

Wish you the very best during your last year of high school!

Jamie

This was a fun senior friends shoot, even though it was like 110 degrees or something absolutely crazy!  We were all a bit dewy, to say the least!  Thank you so much Pavel, might have your name incorrect…sorry…of the Stardust Motel for allowing us to use your historic motel of Redding, Ca as our backdrop!  The girls did a great job with outfit changes and being up for the challenge of modeling in the heat!  I do wish I would of taken one picture of the girls in Peyton’s mini cooper in the parking lot of the Stardust, it would of been perfect!  Maybe in the future!

The rest of our shoot we drove to a few places in Redding, that lent that urban feel!  We did have a DAD with us to make sure we were nice and safe!  So thank you for the bronze protection!  Got to do that these days, it is getting rough out there people!  I am an advocate for taking OUR town back, kinda over these tweaker zombies walking around making it dangerous for the citizens of Redding to enjoy our city.  Okay, off my soapbox, but it is becoming a real issue!  More fun downtown shoots have been shot, and not blogged yet!  I am excited to share!  Especially Nikki’s Gold Street Liquors editorial featuring Dark Pony Designs!

Enjoy the rest of your summer girlies!  I know all of you will be very successful!

What a flawless subject, seriously…flawless.  Not many are lucky enough to have this type of beauty.  Thank you Kara for allowing me to take your senior portraits!  It was really fun getting to meet you and your family, also your beautiful horse.  The pasture near your grandmother’s home, so beautiful and so glad we started your senior session there.  Speaking of your grandmother, uh..stunning!  I see where you and your mom get it…good genes being passed down generation to generation!

Thank you Crystal for helping and being so supportive during the shoot!  Tell you man he did a good job on your guys quick family portraits!!!!  I really liked them, decided not to post here since this blog post is all about Kara and her senior portraits! 🙂

Kara, I wish you the very best in life!  Sounds like you have your future all planned out and will be very successful!

Thanks so much you guys for letting me take Kyle’s senior portraits downtown Redding.  Super glad we had dad with us, just because downtown is getting a bit rougher…well, ALL of Redding is to tell you the truth.  Anyhow, it was a super great way to spend the evening with you guys.

Love the white T-shirt shots, gotta say…he was right!  Very Alex Turner like!  Let me know if you ever want to try a shoot similar to that link, I would be so excited!  Thanks to the blue hotel on the side for allowing us to use their parking lot for a few shots too!

Hope you have a great rest of your senior year!

It is absolutly crazy how quickly time passes!  I met Sara when she was in the 8th grade, I think.  She was actually one of the very first people I got to practice my photography with, outside of my family.  Thank you so much Renee and Sara for supporting me through this crazy journey! I always love the time we spend together during our shoots each year!

Sara, holy cow…can’t believe you are graduating and planning on becoming a dentist!  That is so amazing!  I hope you enjoy this last little bit of your senior year in high school!  As you know, you are stunning!  Also, a super great model!  Thank you for choosing me to take your senior portraits!

Colby, had a lot of fun with you and your mom for your senior portraits downtown Redding, CA.  We were crazy fortunate to get to walk around Pro-Trans with permission from Stephen, owner and fellow photographer.  Thank you Stephen for allowing this!  Also, love the new sculpture in your office!  So cool!

Also, props to you Colby, driving around your Grandfather’s gorgeous blue vintage Mack Truck!  That truck is an absolute monster, I could never drive it! 🙂  I would be too freaked out! Thanks for all the special efforts to create a really interesting senior portrait shoot.  We were able to go to several locations and the truck was so rad!  Thanks Kimberly for working so hard to help create Colby’s images.  I love it when parents get involved, the images are always better!

Hayden, you are so great in front of the camera.  My faves are you just being serious, which I am almost thinking you might be a lot of the time.  Hopefully I will be in contact soon for a weekly test for my other site and you still be interested.

Thanks for letting me take your senior portraits downtown Redding, California.  I really enjoyed getting to play with some off camera light after the downtown parking structure cleared out a bit.  It was neat to get to show both natural light and off camera light for your shoot.  Something that I plan on doing more in 2017 thanks to this experience, so thank you very much for being so willing!

Brigette, thank you so much for picking me for your son’s senior pictures.  You were such a trooper walking all around in your wedges!  Great job with the styling too!  Love it when the extra effort is made for senior portrait sessions.  Things like vintage cars and cool clothes are such a plus to add interest to his photographs.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your senior year Hayden, and I look forward to getting you in front of my camera again soon!

xoxo,

Jamie

Oh my goodness…such a gorgeous person!  Thank you so much Brianna for allowing me to take your senior portraits the other day!  Loved your outfits, your hair, and your makeup was spot on!  Thank you Brittany Bear of The Gild for doing such a fantastic job on makeup and Razors Edge for her hair.  Tammy, you were so helpful and I really enjoyed our time together!  All except the possible mine we discovered! lol!

Enjoy the rest of our senior year Brianna!

xoxo,
