Now Showing: California Ballerina Senior Session! the senior scoop

For Photographers

This time of year is typically a slow season for photographers but every once in a while I have a senior session in the middle of winter. This is one of those!! It was not the weather we were expecting in sunny, warm California for Megan’s senior session, but it still turned out SO beautifully.

P.S. Did I mention she’s a ballerina… and that you can watch the whole thing?!

During Megan’s Ballerina Senior Session, I climbed crazy cliffs in Laguna Beach while shooting during less than ideal winter weather and:

  • Photographed a dancer in locations that looked different than they did when I first scouted them out
  • Created flattering poses for a petite client when it was cold and grey
  • Pivoted when certain poses just weren’t working
  • And still delivered a client gallery that we BOTH loved!

So how can YOU can do all of this in your own senior sessions? Come along with me to watch this entire, uncut senior session TODAY inside The Senior Scoop, my monthly membership community for senior photographers. Every month hundreds of photographers get access to real senior sessions just like this one as my virtual second shooter. Plus, they get access to live coaching calls with me, private access to our members-only community, and so much more – and you can too!
