The UC Davis arboretum is always a lovely place to take portraits. Here are a few favorites from a summer high school senior portrait shoot with twin sisters.

Senior portraits are such a fun experience and a great time to dress up and celebrate your graduation. For this shoot we had two class of 2013 and one class of 2014 senior join us. First the girls got professional makeup done by the artist team from Dolce Vita beauty: Veronica Marshall and Mariela Medina. Then they were styled with wardrobe by Jesse and Shania Larrosa. For the finishing touches, they are wearing jewelry from Stella&dot, provided by independent consultant, Kim Campinelli, and handmade flower accessories from Celia Rose Inc.

The look and feel of this shoot was really magical thanks to the amazing staff out at the Historic Oakdale Ranch in Esparto, CA. Their beautiful venue is a new hot spot wedding venue in Yolo County! Brides looking for an outdoor location should check it out!

Special thanks also goes out to my assistant on this shoot, Kelli Stoffregen!

Dance Senior Portraits by Sacramento, CA Photographer

Posted on: April 24th, 2013

Last weekend we had a very special shoot in the studio at Amy Shuman Photography.  High school junior, Kennedy, and high school senior, Tate, joined us for a unique day.  Let’s just say this wasn’t your standard “senior portrait” session…  Of course, the fact that both of these girls are immensely talented dancers added to the fun.  They arrived at the studio in downtown Davis, CA for hair by Amanda Walker (of Salon Jewel), and makeup by Veronica Marshall (Dolce Vita Beauty).  Next, it was time for a custom outfit, built live “on the set” by Jesse Larrosa, costume desginer.  We started with a few portraits, and then it was time to head back to hair and makeup to add some dramatic flair for the dancing shots.  And then, the jumping began!  I loved watching the way the fabric moved with each jump and leap.  I was so happy with the end result, and the beautiful art that the team was able to create.  Enjoy!

A fun behind the scenes image of the two girls together.  These dresses were pretty heavy, and its impressive they were able to move in them.

More behind the scenes of the team hard at work.  I was working, too, but from behind the camera, of course.

And here we are, the creative team, trying to jump just like these awesome models…  “trying” is the key word…  To our credit, its really hard to know when the automatic camera timer is going to go off, so we were really just guessing with our jumps…
