Beautiful California beach & sunset senior portraits with Mikayla

Todays blog post features a beautiful California beach & sunset senior portraits! Meet Mikayla from Valencia High School! Mikayla is a Class of 2018 senior and is also on my model team! One of the things I really loved about Mikayla’s senior portraits was that all of the looks and outfits coordinated but still had a ton of variety. You’ll notice she wore a formal prom dress, overall skirt, skirt with a crop top, overalls, and an amazing crochet dress from Free People! All of the outfits were so unique and fun in their own way! Here’s a peek at some of my favorite images (which there is ton!) and what Mikayla had to say about planning for her shoot. But first, let’s hear a little bit more about Mikayla….
