Madison : Senior Shoot in Ventura

fun senior portraits in southern california in ventura beach with tara rochelle

Today, I’m bringing back one of my really fun shoots with Madison! Madison is a recent graduate from Saugus High School in the Santa Clarita Valley, and currently attends California State University, Channel Islands! She has a crazy, fun personality and is easy to love.

I absolutely loved this shoot because there was so much variety, which is why I love shooting in Ventura! We even got to stop at a few places down the way. The weather was perfect, just like her outfits! I was so in love with the outfits Madison brought because they represented her personality really well. Although they were all very different, they all came together well, and went perfect with her location choice. My favorite outfit was her second one with her adorable jean skirt and her super cute red and white cropped top! I think this outfit in this location was BOMB, although her fifth outfit with the jean jacket and red/orange dress was a close second!!
