It’s a great way to start their day!

Wow! What a busy summer I’ve had!! I’d like to introduce you to Alannah, another #2016rbmodel and #reneebowenSEEN models! Are these girls amazing or what? I love what I do! As a Los Angeles senior portrait photographer, I have the opportunity to take pictures of some amazing people! When do I get to take yours? Anyway, back to Alannah…

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

This Valencia High 2016 senior is a SERIOUSLY amazing girl! She’s SO smart…wise beyond her years! I had the pleasure of shooting her head shots a few years ago, so I knew ahead of time how awesome she is in front of my camera , but OMG, she brought her A-game to this session!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

This girl has amazing curly hair! Jami, the greatest HMUA in the world, and I embraced it and went big with it. By the end of the shoot, it had softened beautifully into these gorgeous beachy waves.

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Alannah was SO prepared and had everything planned and organized. She knew exactly what she wanted – she had even shared a Pinterest board with me so I would know ahead of time what kind of shots she was looking for.

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

We started the shoot out in Malibu at a great natural location. In spite of our lack of rain here in California, we were able to find some great color in this area.

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

I love all of Alannah’s choices for her clothes – she’s very much a Free People kind of girl. My favorite was this leather fringe jacket – love that 70s vibe!!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Later we headed down to El Matador beach. It was quite treacherous getting down the hill, but it was so worth it! It’s obviously a great location ’cause there were no less than 20 other photographers down there with us!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

I just love Alannah, her mom and her sister! We all bonded after the endangerment of climbing down that hill to get to the beach – LOL! Jami hates me for making her do it all the time, but everyone is always glad we take these risks, because we end up with amazing shots like these!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

I love the earthy crown I made for her. I wanted to incorporate more greenery than flowers to go with her authentic, natural vibe.

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

As you can tell, Alannah was a dream to photograph. She’s super comfy in front of the camera. She literally shines from within – SO full of life! We ended up staying out on the beach until sunset, but we were having such a fantastic time that I couldn’t go home just yet. So I drug out my handy-dandy ice lights and kept right on shooting.

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Be sure to check out Alannah’s mobile app! Don’t forget you can have one too!!

Rachel #2016rbmodel | Los Angeles Senior Portraits

It’s a great way to start their day!

I’d like you to meet Rachel, another of my amazing 2016 model reps for my #2016rbmodel and #reneebowenSEEN modeling team that I’ve shot this summer. This shoot was one of four that Rachel and I will be doing over the course of her senior year…man, I love my job!! It’s so easy being a senior portrait photographer in LA when you have such amazing talent to shoot!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

I’ve known Rachel and her family for years – I shot both her and her older sister’s (Allison) bat mitzvahs, and now both of their senior pics too!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

This girl definitely marches to the beat of her own drum.

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

In her very “Rachel” style, she asked for something VERY different for her senior photos – a waterfall! UMMMM, Cali in the middle of a drought? OK! After a bit of research, I found a place in Malibu that still had a trickle of a waterfall left, but it would be a FOUR mile round trip hike! She and her mom, Stacy, were totally up for it!! Lexie (my intern), Jami, and I packed up our gear and we were off!!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

We found lots of cool places along the way to shoot as well! We got a hell of a workout in and definitely earned our Chipotle dinner that day!

My good friend & expert MUA, Jami, did a great job on Rachel’s hair and makeup. It held up the whole time we were hiking!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Her makeup still looked amazing after hiking all that way!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Rachel LOVES to rollerskate!! I just had to grab some shots of her in her brand new white skates, and how cute is this Brandy Melville top?

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Rachel’s sense of style is absolutely fabulous!! This jumper from Brandy Melville is just too cute!

I just love this colorful dress from Free People{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

By the time we got back down to the parking lot, it was starting to get dark. That didn’t stop us from getting some more great shots!!
I pulled out my Westcott Ice lights and kept on going!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

We shot the last of these in the parking lot. There was this really cool rock wall – it was cool until we figured out it was full of BLACK WIDOW SPIDERS!! Isn’t Rachel is stunning in this Free People romper?

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

A park ranger finally shooed us away…I’ve got a permit that allows me to shoot in the national parks, but apparently shooting after sunset is a no-no! That’s OK though, it was a great day and I had gotten loads and loads of great shots!!

Check out Rachel’s mobile app!

It’s a great way to start their day!

I’m so pleased to introduce Eva, another of my fabulous 2016 model reps for my #2016rbmodel and #reneebowenSEEN modeling team that I’ve shot this summer.   This is her senior portrait session — as a rep, she gets four sessions with me throughout the course of her senior year! I just love taking senior portraits in Los Angeles – we always have so much fun!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

We had a blast shooting this West Ranch High 2016 senior – and would you believe this lovely lady is a rugby player?  Yeah!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Eva is incredibly down to earth and kind…such a pleasure to be around – she was such a trooper and was up for whatever I threw her way.. including laying on the ground 😉
Her mom came along for the session – she’s a doll! And, she shares the same name as me, so you know she’s awesome!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Eva’s hair is insanely amazing!  Like… I can’t even put into words…. I know Jami had so much fun doing her hair and makeup – although it took quite awhile to curl these locks, which stayed beautiful and lasted throughout the entire session, falling into perfect beachy waves at the very end.

I love the colors in this flower crown – it really brings out her eyes and is the perfect color for her skin/hair and clothing choices….. I made the flower crown while Jami was busy making Eva look smashing!

(Just ask, I’ll make one for you too!)

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]

Eva brought along some great options for her shoot and man, was she super organized!!  (Her Mom may have helped with this! LOL)

I just love this sweater from Free People!!

{Senior Portraits by Renee Bowen http://www.reneebowen.com} [post_title]Her other outfits were amazing too!!

We shot in and around one of my favorite beaches in Malibu.

We ended up staying until after dark, and saw an amazing full moon! Fortunately, I always carry my Wescott ice Lights in my backpack, so we were able to keep shooting even when we had lost the light. I always have these lights with me for shoots; they’re lightweight and are super easy to transport.

Check out Eva’s mobile app!!

Kayla loves the beach SO much! She had no problem whatsoever getting in the water or rolling around in the sand!!
We shot at one of my favorite places in Malibu!

Kayla did a great job finding outfits that fit her style; I just loved her boho hats and her hand jewelry.

I made it while Jami did her hair and makeup.

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.

 

BrookeWEB72

BrookeWEB66

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

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!
