Amber Fox Photographer » Stylish Portraits for Hip & Happy High School Seniors & Families in Orange County & Los Angeles, CA

Grace just turned 40 and wanted to celebrate her journey thus far by doing a Foxy at Forty photo session. We had a blast shooting at the storefront of Rogers Gardens, in a cute little Corona Del Mar community and then on the beach. Oh what fun!

I have known this wonderful woman for many years now. Grace and used to both live in LA and both went to the same awesome church, Pacific Crossroads. We met in a little woman’s bible study that met before church. We bonded over sharing about our hopes, dreams, and struggles and how God met us in these moments. It has been fun to see how God has used Grace through the years reach the lives of so many students and how God brought her talents all the way to NY, where she currently resides. When coming out here to celebrate her 40th birthday with her West Coast friends and family, we had a photographic celebration of our own. Happy birthday Grace; you are gorgeous!

It was time for an outfit change and the gorgeous walls of a bath that lead down to the beach served as a perfect backdrop for our next location. And doesn’t Grace look stunning in this red dress?!

The beach was calling our name, but I had to get this last shot of Grace. I think it might be my favorite!

One of the most wonderful things about living in Orange County, is that I live close to the beach. And the beach is the perfect backdrop for gorgeous portraits.

I want to introduce you to one of the most amazing young men I have had the honor of working with…Max, Senior Class President of La Serna High School, Class of 2014. He is not only dashing, but he is such a quality guy. Smart, funny, adventuresome, well rounded and a natural leader are just some of the ways to describe him. I have known Max since he was a little boy, so I was so honored to photograph his Senior Portraits and I think they turned out fabulous!

We started our shoot in an alley way in Fullerton. I love the colors and how they perfectly contrast against Max’s cool shirt.

It was time for an outfit change and I just love how laid back he looks in a crisp white shirt and black pants.

We then headed up to the hills in La Habra Heights. I loved the green hills and it almost felt like we were in Ireland.

Max is going to to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the Fall, which is a perfect place for him because it’s close to great surf, amazing hiking trails and it’s a school filled with cool & interesting people. I know he is going to love it!

And of course the perfect way to end Max’s shoot was to wear his letterman jacket. Max was a swimmer and a water polo player all four years and helped lead his Varsity team to State Finals and win!

Amanda is the sweetest young woman. I loved photographing this Senior Portrait session along the trails of Fullerton. As a 2014 graduate of Sonora High School, Amanda is about to embark on an exciting journey into adulthood. I couldn’t be more excited for her as she heads off to Biola University to study communication with a dream of becoming a Speech Pathologist. Seriously, this girl has a bright future ahead of her and I couldn’t be more proud of this awesome group of beautiful images.

Along the Fullerton Loop, there is a really cool chicken coop and the light inside it was amazingly beautiful.

As the light began to set, we headed to another part of the trail and Amanda changed into an adorable romper.

Amanda, thanks so much for giving me the honor of photographing your Senior Portraits. You are such a beautiful young woman, inside and out. I know you are going to LOVE Biola! I can really see you walking the campus and falling more in love with Jesus because of the amazing teaching there and the awesome community it fosters. May God bless your future endeavors. Lots of love and smiles. Blessings!
   

I LOVED everything about this Senior portrait session. Sabrina and I had a blast together and this gorgeous collection of Senior Portraits is probably one of my favorite sessions of the season. Not only is Sabrina STUNNING, but she is also one of my most favorite people in the world. I have had the pleasure of mentoring Sabrina for the past six months and had her at my side for most of my Winter and Spring sessions. Sabrina is super beautiful, obviously, but she is also super intelligent, a great conversationalist, wicked funny and such a well rounded young woman. It was a true pleasure photographing this session!!! So with that, I present to you the adorable Sabrina Im, Class of 2014 from La Serna High School.

Sabrina wanted to do an Urban session, which was awesome! I normally know Sabrina as dressing super casual, so when she busted out the heels a fashionista was born. And she rocked it!

We then headed to a fun alleyway around the corner and found some beautiful light. You can really see what an amazing job my ladies at Salon Lujon did with her makeup and hair in this shot. Thanks Deanna & Heather.

To end off our session, we wanted to capture the softer side of Sabrina. So the hair was braided and accompanied by a floral shawl to create the perfect ending to an amazing Senior Portrait session.

Sabrina is off to UC Davis this Fall to study Viniculture, which is the study of winemaking. I think is SO AWESOME! First, what sort of kids are into that sort of stuff – only super cool ones like Sabrina! Sabrina, I pray for much success in your future. I hope you love what you study, and of course you will, and I hope one day you open a vineyard and I get to go wine tasting there with the hubs. I already miss you and our weekly adventures with my camera. You were the best ever assistant and you will be surely missed.
   

Danielle is a sweet heart. I absolutely love this girl! She is the type of person that when she walks into the room, she is smiling and is so full of life and energy that it’s contagious. Having this much spirit, makes her the most perfect cheerleader, which she was on La Serna’s Song team for all four years of high school and is now on the dance team at Mount Sac University. So with that here is the beautiful and lovely Danielle Cordova.

We got to so lucky with this field of wildflowers, because they are stunning beautiful just like Danielle!

We then headed up to a beautiful spot in La Habra Heights that overlooks LA on one side and OC on the other. I love the rolling green hills, as it makes me feel like I’m in Northern CA.

Danielle, thank you for giving me the honor of capturing your Senior Portraits. I hope it was as fun for you as it was for me, but I think we both know that we had a blast together. I will forever remember your mom holding the reflector behind me…good times. I am excited for your future and all the adventures that await you. Be courageous and take risks to follow your dreams and really go after them!
