Lifestyle senior portraits | UCSB Class of 2015 | Santa Barbara, California

Questa came to me with her own unique vision, which I am always happy to hear. She wanted her session to portray two different sides of her personality: the quiet and the loud. I think the resulting images are lovely, and I loved being a part of making her vision come to life.

El Capitan Canyon & Gaviota State Park

I don't think either of us knew what we were getting into for this shoot. This was the first time I had been to both of these places (the train trestle and the wind caves), and based on some vague research into each, I had certain expectations. One thing I didn't expect was a 60-foot section of nearly vertical climbing to get to the caves. Needless to say, Joré was definitely more in shape than I was. She is involved in theater at UCSB (I love theater people!), and I had a great time working with her.

Knapps Castle Senior Portraits | UCSB Class of 2015 | Santa Barbara, California

Meet Natalie, another lovely UCSB senior! We had a lot of fun on this Free People-inspired shoot – especially with the bathtub! Despite the cold wind we found up in the mountains, I think the shots we got are one-of-a-kind and so warm and golden. Thanks again, Natalie! And congratulations!Natalie-312 00DIP9 Natalie-011 00DIP10 Natalie-068 Natalie-094 Natalie-091 Natalie-108 Natalie-122 00DIP11 Natalie-118 Natalie-100 00DIP1 Natalie-137 Natalie-139 00DIP12 Natalie-156 Natalie-150 00DIP5 Natalie-186 Natalie-199 00DIP4 Natalie-229 Natalie-225 Natalie-245 Natalie-240 00DIP3 Natalie-238 Natalie-269 00DIP6 Natalie-284 Natalie-287 Natalie-294 Natalie-295 Natalie-296 Natalie-353 Natalie-339 Natalie-342 Natalie-328 Natalie-360

I just love working with seniors! For the first (and last) time, I am also a college senior, and it's so fun to be surrounded by so much enthusiasm for UCSB and graduation. Julia and I were able to get some great shots over at the Butterfly Preserve – isn't her smile contagious?

What's not to love about a red polka dot dress, California poppies, green hillsides, and red balloons? Had a great time working with Jessica - she was so enthusiastic and had many wonderful ideas. I love working with people who inspire me in new directions - and help me get through barbed wire fences!

Thanks to Ariella for our '20s soundtrack on the way to Gaviota, for helping me not fall off miniature cliffs, and for entertaining this ridiculous bird-lady dress.

Alex & Mike


Alex & Mike recently got engaged, and we had a great time wandering around the Funk Zone and beach area of Downtown Santa Barbara. They moved here from New Jersey not too long ago, and I'm glad because it meant I got to work with them! I love the industrial feel of the beginning shots, followed by the soft, romantic tones of the ending after the sun had set. Such a sweet, attractive couple. :-)

Krissy & Erik

Goleta, California

The day of this shoot was the 3-year anniversary of when Erik first proposed to Krissy, so I thought it was sweet that we got to incorporate their wedding attire into some of the shots. They are an amazing couple with awesome style. Thanks again, Krissy & Erik!
