Happy Throwback Thursday! Today, we are throwing it back to one of my beautiful models from the Class of 2019, Lilly! She recently graduated from Valencia High School in 2019. She was a part of the Valencia Dance Team throughout high school and says she holds a special place in her heart for dance! Lilly loves sushi, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, shopping, and even reggae music!!
Lilly’s bohemian style senior portraits came out absolutely stunning!! She has an amazing smile, but I also love her killer serious looks, wow! Lilly’s session took place in Venice, California, a popular and unique stop here down in Southern California. So many vibrant colors that went perfectly with Lilly’s outfits! I loved capturing these moments so I hope you’ll enjoy seeing them!
