My top Five Reasons to book your urban senior pics at the Orange County Anti-mall

1. Lots of Modern Textures for your portrait background

If you are looking for a lot of variety in backgrounds for your senior portrait session, this is the perfect location. This spot features The Lab on one side of the street and The Camp on the other side. The Lab charges $100 to photograph on the property. The price is reasonable as you can use two locations.

The Lab Anti-Mall has vibrant colors, urban fields, and alleys for picture-taking. On the other side of the street you have The Camp which has a lighter and brighter aesthetic.
