Gabi’s End of an Era Senior Session (by Scott & Breanna)

When you see Gabi’s senior pictures, you will probably notice the same thing that Scottie and I (Breanna) noticed…gabi0031…this girl should be a model!gabi0024gabi0059gabi0047I’m not sure if that’s what her parents want to hear or not, but it’s true.gabi0049She’s not only tall and gorgeous but she was a complete natural in front of the camera!gabi0073gabi0038gabi0056gabi0088I asked her over and over again if she’d ever done modeling before because she just seemed to know what she was doing. Every time I asked, the answer was still no, but I still had a hard time believing it!gabi0058Maybe it’s just because Gabi’s grown up watching how her older brothers and sisters do it, since this will be the fourth and final senior photo session we’ve done for her family! We’ve figured out that Gabi was probably only nine years old when Scottie and I started photography, and likely still pretty close to that age when her oldest brother’s senior photos were taken! It feels like the end of an era!gabi0021I’m sure Gabi’s parents feel that way even more so as they get ready to watch their baby girl don her cap and gown for her graduation ceremony!gabi0028gabi0039I guess that’s why senior photos are so special in the first place, they mark both endings and new beginnings. They commemorate a major stage in life that’s about to transform into a new exciting and equally terrifying (maybe more so for the parents than the kids!) time in life.gabi0083gabi0080gabi0052It’s a very special thing and we’re so happy that we got to be a part of it not only for Gabi, but for all of her family!gabi0012gabi0037gabi0090Congrats, Gabi! We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you! A modeling career perhaps???gabi0089gabi0081Click to see the rest of Gabi’s End of an Era Senior Photos.gabi0076

Kelsey and Steven’s Busy Beach Engagement Session (by Scott & Breanna)

Ah the sound of the ocean, the feeling of sand under your feet, and the sounds of children laughing…kelsey_steve0061kelsey_steve0079kelsey_steve0087… or is that thousands of adults laughing, screaming, and talking? Yep, it’s the second one!kelsey_steve0026When we arrived at the Santa Monica Pier for Kelsey and Steven’s engagement session, we definitely expected to find more of the first and ended up with a lot more of the second!kelsey_steve0008kelsey_steve0029Unbeknownst to us, it was the night of the free concert on the pier, and there were thousands of people there along with their millions of bottles of wine. At first, I was a little worried that all these people might take a toll on our photo session, but happily found out that instead, they actually added to it!kelsey_steve0053I mean, what’s a completely empty and quiet beach? The answer is it’s a sad beach! It’s way more fun if there are tons of people wading in the water, building sand castles, or you know, getting drunk on a Thursday night perhaps!;-)kelsey_steve0076kelsey_steve0108kelsey_steve0039kelsey_steve0009In the end, the people really added to the whole energy of the session and gave it a fun hustle and bustle feel… or rather, gave it a more intimate feel with Kelsey and Steven being lost in their own world while people all around them were in a hurry to get in line for a corn dog or to get in the front row of the stage!kelsey_steve0056When you have a couple this perfect for each other and this in love, you can put them anywhere, including in a group of hundreds of people, and they will always catch your eye!kelsey_steve0054So overall, it was a very fantastic and fun session! We had a great time with Kelsey and Steven, got some amazing pictures, saw several intense public displays of affection, dodged some gnarly seagull poop, and are now looking forward to your wedding day even more than we were before!kelsey_steve0074kelsey_steve0058
