One of our most popular photography promotions is our Model for a Day sessions. Every year we offer this wonderful photography package that’s perfect for treating yourself or someone special. Over the years, we’ve had so many wonderful shoots and we’ve featured a few of them here on the blog. Here are some of my favorites. Be sure to click through to see the beautiful photos.
First up is stunning Abby!
One of my greatest joys is showing people how amazing they can look in a photograph, especially women. In fact, I really love working with gals of all ages. From the preteen that is just learning how to wear makeup and do their hair to helping create a fresh new look for Moms, I just really love making people feel beautiful.

Dancing Beauty Headshots
We had so much fun at this session working with my longtime clients—the Hulley family—to perfect their daughter’s headshots.
Orange County Modeling Headshots: Teagan and Jade
I cannot believe this session is from all the way back in 2012. It seems like just yesterday, and these beauties look as fresh and gorgeous as ever. View the entire post and the headshots.
Professional Model-type Headshots
Meet my friend Lori. As it goes with most stories, her passion for nutrition (especially for kids) was the result of a scare in her own life. Lori is a beautiful, fit, energetic gal with a wonderful, loving energy. She was working lots of hours and raising her four boys. Out of nowhere, Lori had a stroke. She is not what you would picture in your head as a person at risk for any type of health scare, but it happened. Lori was inspired to change her life, to be there for her family. And Lori knew that the key was good nutrition and that it needed to begin in childhood. So Lori created the website and blog called www.juicebuds.com. There she provides great recipes, life stories that include her four amazing boys and lots of inspiration. She is also now a holistic health coach to help others achieve a healthy lifestyle.
Lori and I got together to do a fun photography session to celebrate her! Here are just a few of my favorite images from the day. View the whole post and her healthy beautiful headshots.
Modeling Headshots Styled Session
In 2016, we decided to do a fun, collaboration styled session with Breathe Autumn Rain jewelry, with makeup by Brittany Norton (brittanynortonartistry) and myself all contributing to a photography session.
We were extremely lucky to get several beautiful girls to volunteer their time to model for us in exchange for providing professional headshots for them. We all consulted together on wardrobe, overall style and also how to best give everyone involved an opportunity to do something a little different and creative.

I hope you enjoyed this little flashback to some of my favorite model shoots.
I know how nerve-wracking it can be to try to figure out which clothes to wear, which accessories, and shoes, let alone what you want your senior photos to look like. When brainstorming senior photo locations, I always keep your personality, interests, and style in mind. Here are just a few of the best Orange County locations I use for high school seniors photography.
Let’s start with a photo at the Balboa Fun Zone in Newport Beach.
1. On a Boat (aka Balboa Fun Zone)
We often take for granted the beautiful waterfronts we live near. Of course there’s always the beach, but if you’re in the mood for something a little more unique, a little more nautical, the harbor at Newport Beach’s Balboa Fun Zone is a great place for modern high school senior photos.
We’ve recently added some great upgrades to our Blue Sky’s Studio “studio,” including a white leather couch/ottoman, clean white brick wall, and even a makeup and hair station where our stylists will make you picture perfect. Clean white backgrounds, props, furniture, and wardrobe options can give your photos a high-end look.
Just a quick walk from our studio is the picturesque nature-meets-art landscape of Laguna College of Art and Design.
4. Balboa Pier
The oceanfront is such an important part of life here in Orange County and if you want that beachy feel with a little more sophistication, Balboa pier and the surrounding area is a great place to take your senior photos.
This gorgeous wilderness area is not just a great escape from busy city life, but is also frequented by hikers and painters. The afternoon light is just wonderful for senior photos.
For a change of pace and old world feel the mission at San Juan Capistrano is a great place for seniors who want more texture and a rustic feel to their senior portraits.
Believe it or not this high school senior photo was taken in the San Juan Open Spaces near an old metal sidewall. There are so many hidden gems at this location, like the field of mustard flowers in the photo after this one.
8. Your Own Home
Sometimes the place you feel most at home, is well, in your own surroundings. And sometimes the best way to show your unique personality is to have your senior photos taken on your own family’s property, like these two were.
9. The LAB
This “anti-mall” in Costa Mesa is a fun place to shoot senior photos because it has a great variety of modern/vintage art everywhere you look, like this fountain.
10. Table Rock Beach
This Laguna Beach location is stunning place for a variety of natural light photography options. The cliffs and surrounding area have a wealth of places to find just the right pose for your senior photos.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this list of just a few of my favorite places to shoot senior photos. If you’d like to learn more about our senior photography packages check out the Blue Sky’s Studio senior photography website or sign up for my email list to get the latest news on promotions and giveaways.
