Nature Senior Session | Santiago Oaks Regional Park | Orange, CA

Share It On Your Social Media!

I usually don’t have a blog post live on Monday’s, but I will be taking Tuesday and Wednesday off this week to be with friends for one of my good friend’s bachelorette. 🙂

I photographed this beautiful Canyon High School Senior, Rachel, before I left for Paris, France last month and just now blogging her session. Although it’s late, I am still so excited to be sharing it today.

Her and her mother picked Santiago Oaks Regional Park because Rachel wanted something full of trees and nature-like. With all the rain we had this winter, Rachel got so lucky to have picked a park full of green and flowers! It was making her happy and making my photographer heart happy! haha!

When Rachel and her mom Renee showed up to their location of choice, I was blown away. Rachel (and her mom) are so beautiful! Between the combination of Rachel’s long gorgeous brown hair and pretty smile, I couldn’t help but continue capture smiling photos and showing off her locks! They ended up picking lots of photographs for their package and I am so happy they did. It has been so hard to narrow it down to share here on the blog

While we explored the trails of one of the Orange County Parks, I found out that Rachel has an interest and joy in photography as well. Her and her mom were also mentioning that they were in the process of packing up their home. Rachel is the last child and will be going to Colorado for college. They both didn’t tell each other before Rachel committed to Colorado, but her parents also decided to sell the house to move back to Colorado.

Although Rachel will be going away for college, her parents won’t be very far from her… Just in case she every gets “home” sick! 😛

Rachel, congrats on your upcoming graduation next month and good luck in college! It was so great having the chance to capture your beauty and this exciting time in your life! 🙂
