Fun Beach Senior Portraits in Southern California with Emma

For Emma’s senior session, she wanted some urban and some fun beach senior portraits in Southern California. Emma is a Class of 2017 senior from Hart High School and we had a wonderful time spending the day together! For several of her looks, we did them with an urban city feel. Soft and natural was the look we did for a few of her more feminine outfits. Her amazing dad also brought along his second prized possession (his rad Corvette) for Emma to shoot with. Here are some of my favorite looks along with some great tips from Emma herself. I think she has some great advice for helping those that are also planning fun beach senior portraits in Southern California!
