I had the most wonderful time photographing eight gorgeous and energetic teenage girls in Redondo Beach recently. A sorority sister from CSULB tracked me down on Facebook and my name popped up as she was discussing a unique sixteenth birthday party with her daughter. Her daughter planned the whole evening with seven of her closest girlfriends and a professional portrait session was the first thing on the agenda.
We stopped off at Lotus Yogurt Bar first thing to get the girls fueled and then headed down to an amazing beach with a stunning panoramic view of the South Bay. The hardest shot of the day was getting one where all the girls were serious at the same time. Giggles were contagious and would constantly take over the session.
I can’t think of a better way to spend a sixteenth birthday.
