It’s a great way to start their day!

Meet Brooke, the first of my 2016 model reps for my #2016rbmodel and #reneebowenSEEN modeling team that I’ve shot this summer.   You might remember seeing her mini session pics on my site too — well this is her senior portraits session — as a rep, she gets four sessions with me throughout the course of her senior year!

 

BrookeWEB58

Brooke will be a senior at Valencia High School in Santa Clarita. She enjoys swimming and working as a life guard and she also coaches – this girl is always at the pool – which explains that perfect tan she has! (jealous)

We spent time shooting at the iconic Paramount Ranch, where Brooke totally rocked her country chic style!   Brooke loves country music and  that hat was the perfect accessory for this fabulous lace-trimmed dress…and those shoes? LOVE!

 

And these shoes??  ...okay, this girl knows how to buy shoes!!

BrookeWEB30

 

We also spent time on one of my favorite Malibu beaches!! Brooke was so much fun to shoot!  I even periscoped some of her session from the beach – if you haven’t discovered periscope yet, you gotta check it out — it’s insanely fun.

Isn’t this American flag inspired top awesome? Then she added a wispy blue scarf and took the outfit to a whole new artsy level – there were SO many that I loved from this portion.

A huge shout out to my girl Jami Coxexcellent work on hair and makeup that makes Brooke look just beautiful but still like HER.  (and yes, her eyes are different colors and I’m super freakin jealous about that too)

It’s a great way to start their day!

Just a quick hello and “Happy 4th of July” to you guys — hope you all have a safe and fun one!

Here is a recent favorite from Brooke’s senior session — she is on my 2016 #rbmodel team — the #2016SEENteam and we shot this portion of her session out in Malibu.  It was an overcast “June Gloom” day but we still got some great stuff.   I loved this top Brooke brought and paired it with her blue scarf to make more of an artsy look – and along with this Alien Skin edit, it works great I think!

4th of July 2015

I’m getting pretty booked for the rest of this calendar year for 2016 Seniors …. I can do a couple more dates in August, as well as September and October, but November is pretty full and I don’t shoot at all in December, so if you want to get on the books for your Senior Portraits, please call or email ASAP – I hate having to turn people away!!

See you soon!  xo,  R

It’s a great way to start their day!

Ryann’s senior shoot at the Santa Monica Pier was just amazing! She’s just graduated from Royal High School in Simi Valley, CA. My favorite glam gal, Jami Cox, did a beautiful job  with Ryann’s makeup…beautiful and natural!

RyannWEB20

Ryann loves the theatre! I first met her when she was doing a play with my kids! It was super fun to see her all grown up and a real blast to shoot her senior pics!

RyannWEB24

I think my favorite images of Ryann under the pier with her hat! The sunlight under the pier was amazing, yummy and was just perfect to complement Ryann’s cool boho style!

I had so much fun shooting this beach session with Audrey!! This 2015 senior rocked this shoot! We shot at my favorite hidden gem of a beach in Malibu and out at the stables in Calabassas where Audrey keeps her horses, Bivonia G and PF Russel.

AudreyWEB50Audrey will be attending Oklahoma State University on a full equestrian scholarship in the fall. Her horses are SO beautiful and very easy to shoot, just like Audrey!!

Entourage :: A Day in Los Angeles

It’s a great way to start their day!

Stand Out SEEN APRIL

 

I have been SO excited to share this session, but had to wait until the March Challenge was announced….   I’m a part of a select group of photographers from all over the country who are participating in We Are The SEEN’s monthly photography challenges – they are themed and meant to push us creatively.

The theme for March was Entourage (I loved that show and can’t wait for the movie to come out!)  So I had the idea of taking Alexa (my Senior’s Ignite winner and one of #the12 – and her best friends down to Hollywood for a little fun.

These guys KILLED IT.

Entourage Blog11

 

I didn’t want the session to be too staged… I wanted it to reflect a real day and night of friends out in L.A., so more editorial in nature.  They fell into the session perfectly and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it all turned out…. and as bonus, my submission was chosen as “StandOut SEEN” top image and featured on the site today — super stoked about that!

Alexa, Jenna, Chloe, Kennedy & McCall — thank you guys for spending such a fun day with me and bringing this vision to life!

 

Entourage Blog7

We started at Griffith Observatory (and it was chilly and windy!)

Entourage Blog4

but they were troopers

feel free to pin and share these….

and then we headed down to Hollywood Blvd., where they were just finishing up a premier for Avengers

(we missed Chris Hemsworth by minutes!)

Entourage Blog25

Seriously so much fun!!  They caused quite a scene 😉   These guys just about lost their minds when they saw the girls and asked for a pic lol!

Entourage Blog32

All in all, it was great — and we took lots of selfies 😉

Entourage Blog35

 

I’ll be participating in these monthly challenges all year — my SEEN level models will have the option to hop in on some if they want, but I am also looking for high school underclassmen & also collegiate peeps for these (ages 15-20) so be sure and sign up for my mailing list and I’ll send you the info!

request SENIOR PORTRAIT pricing & get on the list

and make sure you’re following along on snapchat (@purtywun) for all my behind the scenes shenanigans!

And 2016 SENIORS –>

I’m getting booked for SUMMER & FALL so you need to get in touch ASAP if you want to get your #seniorpics done this year!  I have some killer locations and ideas, and as always, I want to hear what YOU want for your session!!   As a founding member of the SEEN magazine, I also have exclusive opportunities for my seniors to be submitted for publication for possible feature in the magazine….as well as the opportunity to WIN the next #the12 modeling contest!

It’s a great way to start their day!

Let me introduce you to Kylee…this girl is AWESOME! She’s finishing up her senior year at West Ranch High School in the Santa Clarita Valley and will be attending Chapman University in the Fall.

KyleeWEB42

KyleeWEB3

Kylee loves a good cup of coffee and spending time at the beach. So, she had this amazing idea of going down to Abbott Kinney in Venice, CA, for her session. I couldn’t have chosen a better location to tell her story. It suited Kylee perfectly…artsy, eclectic, laid back…the picture-perfect Cali place for the quintessential Cali girl!

 

KyleeWEB40

Kylee’s sweatshirt may say “Royal Pain” but this girl was anything but a pain.  Her session was just pure magic. She’s laid back and SO EASY TO PHOTOGRAPH! She brought along loads of clothing choices that suited her personality. Mixed in with the great location…there was no way this shoot was going to end any way other than fabulous!!

KyleeWEB5

 

KyleeWEB10

We finished Kylee’s session at the beach. In spite of the very chilly breeze, Kylee was a trooper and we had a blast! Doesn’t she look enchanting in this boho chic dress from Free People?

KyleeWEB55

Kylee’s session included a “plus one” so Kylee invited her mom to join in on a few shots, which I thought was super cool! Kylee and her mom were simply a dream to work with. Special thanks, as always to Jami Cox, for making Kylee look like a million bucks while keeping her real!

I’m excited to finally show you shots from Sara’s portrait session. We met up last fall here in Santa Clarita! Special thanks goes out to my favorite glam goddess, Jami Cox. As always, she provided absolutely stunning hair and makeup!

Sara is absolutely beautiful, so it was easy for Jami to take that beauty to the next level, while still keeping her looking like her!!

It’s a great way to start their day!

The only thing better than getting to shoot this adorable couple’s engagement session is getting to shoot their wedding in October!   I love working with them – they’re so laid back and in love…..we had a blast shooting these over at Paramount Ranch a couple of weeks ago…. LOVE how nice and green everything is right now!  SoCal really soaks up the rain when we finally get it – just wish it stayed around for summer.

These are just a handful of some of my faves – too many to share, but this gives you a taste!

I’m super stoked about the weddings I have booked for 2015 — I don’t take on too many, since I try and leave my schedule open mostly for my Senior Portraits, but the ones I do accept… I love 😉  Can’t wait to capture Ashtyn and Cody’s amazing day…
