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

I was SO excited to photograph Chad, an about to be graduate from Fullerton High School. If you have been following me for awhile you probably noticed that I traditionally don’t photograph guys. So when I booked this shoot, I was elated that I had the challenge of photographing a subject that I wasn’t used to working with. I have taught photography for 13 years and have taught how to pose guys that entire time, but even still, I was a little nervous. Oh my goodness, I nailed it! And I had SO MUCH FUN doing it!

Chad was like a breath of fresh air. Confident, easy going and a natural in front of the camera…he was the perfect model. After getting to know Chad a bit, I knew he didn’t want flowers and rolling green hills to be his location for his Senior Portraits. Also after hearing all about his outfit choices, I knew that urban backdrops would be the perfect place to do our shoot, so the back alleys in Fullerton were the perfect spot to start out shoot.

With a camera in hand, I had new eyes and BOOM, it served as a great background for Chad to stand in front of.

    Great job Amber! I knew you’d be perfect for this shoot. Awesome pictures of such a handsome young man!

Kendall is a graduating senior from Sonora High School and is seriously the sweetest girl ever! I had so much fun photographing her in the hills of Fullerton. From her beautiful eyes to her long curly hair, Kendall is GORGEOUS!

And I knew just the spot.  Amber Fox Photographer, Kendall Rubeshaw, Class of 2014, Orange County Senior Portraits 4I am so happy with all the recent rains in So Cal, as that means lots and lots of green! Yay! Amber Fox Photographer, Kendall Rubeshaw, Class of 2014, Orange County Senior Portraits 1I practically jumped up and down when we came upon these stairs.

One of the things that I love about photographing high school seniors, is to be able to have the opportunity to make young woman feel beautiful. Caitie is such a pretty girl, so she got lots and lots of compliments on the day of our photo shoot. Caitie is the Senior Class President at Rosary High School and one of Foxy Senior Models, so this girl is used to be in front of people and knows how to put on the charm. I have loved getting to know her through the past year and have been privileged to photograph her three times now, so we of course had a  blast on our shoot that was just her.

We started our shoot in Uptown Whittier, which is a place I used to shoot at all the time. My own photo students are photographing portraits right now, so I wanted to shoot in the area that my students are taking pictures, so they could see how I utilize the same locations and I discover light and natural frames in their hometown. Plus, this gave Caitie a super unique and fun look to her Senior Portraits, since I typically don’t shoot there.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I am so excited to show you all my beautiful Foxy Senior Models for this super fun concept shoot.

One of the reasons I love having a team of beautiful Foxy Senior Models, is that when I have a fun idea for a shoot, I know they are all game. About six weeks ago, I wanted a fun excuse to get all my girls together and I knew Valentine’s Day was coming up. So my assistant created a super fun Anthropologie inspired backdrop and I had all my girls wear a similar color scheme of black, red and white and viola, our shoot was born!

Lauren is looking STUNNING in this shot! Oh my!

Life happens so quickly. You have a baby, take lots of pictures when they are little and then all of sudden, your baby is graduating from high school and you haven’t taken a picture of them in what feels like years. The cliche is true, that our children grow up so fast. This is why I LOVE photographing adult siblings, because they too need great pictures. As a mom, I hope to photograph my boys all the time, even when they are in high school, but something tells me that my high schooler will be pushing my camera away.

The Hartnett family is a darling family of two handsome brothers and two beautiful sisters. All very smart and super talented, Madeline, Liz, Chris and Ryan were super fun to photograph. I grew up with only one brother, so I don’t know what it’s like to have a big family. On the flip side, my husband grew up with four other siblings. Just as it is at the home my husband grew up in, I am sure the Hartnett household is filled with lots of laughter.

We did our shoot in two stages. We started in my favorite Fullerton nature spot and took advantage of some beautiful light. We had so much fun taking some beautiful head shots and some great family and sibling portraits.

And with a  new location, it was time for an outfit change. Yeah! Amber-Fox-Photographer,-Hartnett-Family_-44I love the way the ladies at Salon Lujon do all of my client’s hair and makeup. Liz, you are stunning in this shot!!! Amber-Fox-Photographer,-Hartnett-Family_-38 Amber-Fox-Photographer,-Hartnett-Family_-34
