I had a blast photographing Emily’s high school senior portraits here in Santa Clarita!! A friend of hers has a horse ranch and so we did the pictures there so we could do some with her horse, Badeer (and of course, her dog Bailey had to be in some too). Here is what Miss Emily had to say about herself…

25 things you didn’t know about me!
1. I love to dance. Dancing is one of my all time passions. I danced 12 years. I would say ballet and jazz are my favorite styles of dance.
2. I have an older sister and a twin sister. (My twin are nothing alike) I love them both to death.
3. I’m a pro dirt bike rider…. Just kidding! I like to think I am. I love to go camping in the winter with my family and family friends and ride together.
4. Mammoth Mountain is my serenity. I love to go up there every year and ski and snowboard in the winter and in the summer I love to fish.
5. My goal in life is to be a Producer, Writer, and Director. That dream scares me to death but I can’t picture myself doing anything else.
6. Before becoming a Producer Write or Director I also aspire to be an Actress. (Dream Big lol)
7. I can out eat you and your boyfriend too.
8. I love to cook and bake. I like to think I’m good at it.
9. When I hear a song I like, I can listen to it over and over without tiring of it. I will usually sing along if no one else is around
10. I can wiggle my ears (without touching them)
11. I was a vegetarian for two years. (I missed meat too much)
12. I’m absolutely in love with Elvis Presley and Johnny Depp.
13. I just realized how many times I’ve said “I” in this list.
14. I love the Los Angeles DOGERS!
15. I could never live in the city permanently.
16. I love to Hike.
17. My dog and my horse are my favorite in this whole world.
18. I absolutely love Disney movies.
19. I play guitar. I taught myself basic songs thanks to YouTube and Taylor Swift.
20. I love talking to new people
21. I love Pinterest
22. My twin sister and I named my car Betty White (Granny Car)
23. Hi I’m Emily and I’m a chocoholic…..

This lovely family was referred to me and I am so happy I was able to meet up with them for their Orange County family portrait session. With little kids, you never know what you’re going to get. Could be smiles galore or could be a ton of crying and drama. These little ones were a little hesitant with me at first but they soon opened up and I think we captured some beautiful portraits. I especially love little mans bow-tie!! How incredibly cute!! Here are a few of my favorites!!

I am so glad I got to be Claire’s senior portrait photographer! We had an awesome time photographing in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles! The fabulous Nikki did Claire’s makeup and I love that Claire wanted to try something a little different for her TR Senior Model photoshoot and did the bold lip color! She rocked it! Here is what Miss Claire had to say about herself along with some of my favorite portraits from the day…

25 Things About Me:
1. I’m the only vegetarian in my family, and have been since I was a baby.
2. My pug, Dug, is a little bit Internet-famous.
3. I grew up in Seattle and I still miss the rain sometimes.
4. I don’t just sing in the shower, I perform. Usually I sing Les Miserables ensemble numbers as every member of the cast, so you can imagine I waste a lot of water.
5. When I grow up I want to be a writer, maybe for T.V. (think Liz Lemon on 30 Rock).
6. Speaking of 30 Rock, best show ever.
7. A few years ago I tried to start writing my memoirs, then realized that I might need a bit more life experience before I tackle that project.
8. I’ve been best friends with the same two girls since second grade. We live on opposite sides of the country now, but we still keep in touch.
9. I bake French macarons, and they’re frighteningly addictive.
10. Somehow, I made it to age 17 without ever really learning how to use a blowdryer.
11. I got in trouble a couple of times last year for staying up too late studying.
12. I usually don’t wear makeup (too lazy!), but I love wearing perfume.
13. I’m part of the first ever senior class at my school.
14. For the last two summers, I’ve interned at a production company on the Paramount lot.
16. I played Beethoven in an elementary school play about the composer’s life, and I still remember the lyrics to most of the musical numbers.
17. I can’t listen to Louis C.K.’s standup in public because I laugh like a crazy person without realizing it.
18. If necessary, I could probably live off breakfast cereal. I eat it at all hours of the day.
19. This summer, I rode a camel in Morocco.
20. Lately I’ve been wanting to dye my hair blue, but I think I’m too chicken.
21. Playing piano is really relaxing for me.
22. I was a competitive swimmer for seven years and I have the split ends to show for it.
23. My dream college is either Columbia or Barnard in New York.
24. I’m singing “Defying Gravity” as I type this, and I have a sore throat so it’s not going very well.
25. I have two favorite books. If I’m feeling pretentious, I’ll say “The Awakening” by Kate Chopin. If I’m being perfectly honest, though, it’s “Bossypants” by Tina Fey.

    I am very proud of Claire, my granddaughter. She is a very intelligent. personable and hard working human inside a beautiful body. It has been a joy to watch her grow up. Expect much good to come from her as the years pass.
