Here’s an exclusive inside look at this year’s Class of 2018 Senior Model Destination Shoot!

The incredible Alana, Allison, Maddie, Sydney, Taimani, Taylor, and Vanessa were a part of it this year – and they freaking SLAAAYED!

With a completely stylized wardrobe and conceptualized hair and makeup by the super talented Jess and Stephanie from Drago Salon in Minden, the girls were ready to hit the graffiti laden Donner Tunnels for a day of shooting, fashion, and fun!

Just like all the destination shoots that I offer, it was an all day event! We started bright and early at my studio where the girls got to relax and feel like a celebrity while getting their hair and makeup done and have a first look at their stylized wardrobe. We had lunch together then headed out for a two hour drive through the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains to one of the coolest locations I’ve ever been to, the Donner Tunnels!

Full of graffiti, history, (and even some snow!), we ventured into the tunnels! The girls were given direction for the shoot that the mood for their photos was going to be edgy, moody, and raw. There were lots of smiles between shots, but it was all about the SASS for this shoot!

After we had walked our butts (heels!) off and explored the incredible historic area around us, it was time to grab a little dinner together in Truckee (and ice cream in Lake Tahoe!) before heading back home for a good night’s sleep! They all earned it!

Go ahead and watch the behind-the-scenes video that the uber-talented Ethan Craik created of the shoot, and then scroll down to see some of the best images these girls helped create that day!


BTW: Do you want your dream photo session too?  You know, this kind of fun isn’t just exclusive to my model team, ANYONE can have a fabulous stylized session like this one! If you’re interested in more information about doing a Senior Portrait Session, Contact me here!
