Madison | Valley Christian High School Beach Editorial Style Senior Portraits

I had the pleasure of knowing Madison for over a year before we captured her senior portraits. It’s such a joy to watch her grow in just the year we’ve known each other and to capture the fun and upbeat personality of this cheer captain with enough school spirit to make anyone smile. Madison and mom had been excitedly planning her beach side photo shoot for a while and a unexpected wet Winter lead a fantastic day at the Santa Cruz beaches! Although we were weary of the gusty winds and possible rain forecasted for the day, it turned out mother nature smiled upon us because as it was raining back in San Jose where we came from, we had a dreaming day at the beach!

Are you dreaming of a senior portrait session that’s styled to your liking and designed with your personality and style in mind? Seeing yourself as how those who love you see you, that’s priceless. It doesn’t hurt either to have a dedicated makeup and hair artist that will keep you looking flawless for anything but generic pics (leave those behind in the yearbook). Contact us and find out why this is one of the most sought after Senior year experiences and one of the most valuable gifts families can invest for themselves.

Q: What influenced your choice of college (UC San Diego)?
