Abby : High School Senior Shoot in Ventura

in studio shoot with funky outfit pieces by tara rochelle in southern california

Today, I am bringing back Miss Abby! She was one of my 2019 models from Saugus High School!! At Saugus, she was a four year member of the Saugus Girls Volleyball team as a middle blocker and opposite. She is currently a freshman at Arizona State University and is majoring in health science. She ALWAYS looks like she’s having a blast whether she’s at a Sun Devil football game or hanging out with her sorority sisters, or both!!

Abby’s high school senior shoot in Ventura was sooo much fun! After hair and makeup, we started off with an in-studio shoot where I dressed her up in some fun and funky pieces!! She pulled off everything so well! We eventually made our way out to Ventura where there was a variety of nature, city, and beach locations. My personal favorite was by the railroad tracks with her cute dress and booties because I think this outfit and location complimented her personality perfectly! Enjoy Abby’s stunning portraits!
