I’ve gotten many emails stating how gorgeous she is and about the wonderful scenery in the photos. Every photograph was taken at McKensie’s family’s home. That made the shoot quite smooth and we were able to finish within three hours. The property included horse stables, orange groves, tennis courts, a custom rock pool with many caves and waterfalls and much, much more! We weren’t able to utilize every aspect of this enormous paradise in just 3 hours. I hope I get to work with Mckensie again someday soon. She was a breath of fresh air! Thanks McKensie and Mom Rhonda! It was just too great to describe…I hope you both are loving the preview of our session here on my blog. Photographs are being placed in your gallery on my website as I type!
I have to thank the wonderful Cindy, a local makeup artist who I work with regularly. She not only did McKensie’s gorgeous makeup for this shoot, but she assisted me during it too. I really appreciate your help and hard work Cindy! Cindy has over 20 years experience in makeup , styling and hair. She has a creative eye and is a dream to work with. We always have a fun time when working together. If you’re in need of an experienced makeup artist and are in Southern California send her an email (email@example.com) and she’ll work her magic on you too! Make sure you mention my name to get the best deal possible.
Okay-on with tonight’s edits…I didn’t comment on the others because I didn’t have a chance, but tonight I’m going to let you know my thoughts on these new ones.
This first one is just phenomenal to me. I missed it the first night when quickly looking through and picking what to edit first. I don’t know how that could have happened because this could easily be the very best photograph taken that day. Everything about it amazes me…
her eyes, her lips, the pose and the sheer simplicity of it. When I think of a model…I think of photographs just like this.
You could sense the love between them!
The family’s cactus garden served as the perfect background & setting.
I love that necklace-it so worked for this look.
This is my “I always give you at least One Shot Beyond what you’re expecting” shot of the day!
I added an old world technique to this and some scratches to really give it some spunk.
This is it-for now…maybe I’ll share some more when I get the chance…
thanks again to Mckensie & her family for letting us into her world for a day!
I see a long career ahead for this beautiful young model!
