Santa Barbara Senior Portraits on the beach

Santa Barbara Dreaming

Personal

A couple weeks ago, I flew out to Santa Barbara, California for United, an awesome photography conference. I love that the Shoot and Share community is truly a community, where everyone is open and willing to freely share ideas, tips, advice, so that we can all get better as photographers, business owners, and as people. I love that this community serves each other and that I could walk away with having learned new things to improve my photography and business, but also with new friends.

On the last morning of the conference, I attended a sunrise shoot. And if you know me, I rarely see the sun rise. However, this shoot was totally worth dragging my sleepy self out of bed and onto the beach. I mean it was the beach in Santa Barbara after all.

On this shoot, I learned how to work with ten yards of fabric to produce images like these. I can’t wait to try this with my current senior portrait clients. It will be so fun…now to just find a beach in Dallas. I’m so thankful for Rochelle Wilhelms for sharing this technique with us! sunrise senior portraits in santa barbara by catie ronquillo photography

Amanda, our model, did an amazing job modeling in the chilly morning hours. I just love her curly red hair!

So, who has a long dress and wants to try this out?

Or, the more pressing question, who wants to have their senior portraits in California??
