Senior Portrait | Celine {Simi Valley High School}

Simi Valley High, Senior Portrait – Celine

The lovely and beautiful Celine’s senior portrait turned out amazing.  She was so easy to work with.  She looked stunning whether she was dressed up fancy or hanging on her Motorbike.  Loved taking the time with her to nail the perfect look.  Take a look at these few moments from our senior portrait session and see just how beautiful she is.  Celine was such a great senior portrait model and knew how she wanted to look and took direction well.  Luminary Photo enjoys making senior portraits available to all high school seniors in the Simi Valley area.  Celine was able to show off one of her favorite pastimes of motorcycle riding.  I love senior’s who want to show off who they are in pictures.  She was sure to pick out her favorite clothes.  Her Mom and Dad were ecstatic with the results and this was all due to Celine wanting to be her in her photos.

United Santa Barbara 2013

How often do we wish we could pick the brain of our favorite expert in a field?  How often do we get to watch and learn from the best?  With how busy our lives are I can tell you it is almost never.  On a whim I was able to spend 4 days in Santa Barbara with 200 amazing photographers, designers and business experts.

We were there to learn more about our art, business and ourselves (as it turned out).  I met some amazing people and had an amazing time.  I am going to post about the trip and show some photos from this gathering in the coming weeks.

One of my favorite shoots was hosted by Tammy Nguyen Le of Tammy Nguyen Le Photography.  Tammy is an expert at making women feel sexy then photographing that feeling.  She is an expert in posing, creating scenes and settings where women can feel hot and sexy.

I have had several of my brides ask me about this type of photography.  While not an expert I get the draw to these types of photos.  They aren’t about being provocative they are about feeling beautiful.

I joked with many of the photographers at United that the reason why I became a photographer was because I hate having my picture taken.  What better way to not be in pictures than to always be taking the picture that everyone wants.  Tammy brought an amazing set down to the beach took one of the photographers there that day and just let her be sexy.  She wasn’t a model but just someone that Tammy helped to feel her best.

I was able to see how to pose a woman that will make her feel comfortable about her body.  Below are the results of this session.  I think these images speak for themselves but I would love to know what you think.
