I was so excited when Pia, a graduating Senior from OCSA, aka the Orange County School of the Arts, contacted me to do her senior portraits. Pia is an exceptional young lady. She is especially brilliant and articulate, which when coming up with ideas for her shoot, we had so much fun dreaming up something together.
Pia is a part of the Creative Writing Conservatory, so she spends her days immersed in the land of words and she LOVES it. Spending much of her days reading the literary greats to writing elequent prose, Pia is on her way to a top league university to study creative writing. So we wanted to make the shoot all about her love for the written word, but with a nod towards the nostalgic.
After getting all dolled up by my girls at Salon Lujon, we met up at the adorable restaurant Rialto Cafe.
Just outside this vintage inspired cafe, is a great wall of ivy that just screams to be photographed upon.
And I just couldn’t stop at the adorable locations nestled in downtown Fullerton. Pia knew how to work the camera and I loved making her feel beautiful.
Then we ventured onto the Fullerton Train Station and continued to get some adorable pics. Isn’t Pia, just GORGEOUS!!!
We then headed to my favorite woodsy location for some adorable shots with a Fall fashion look.
And since we were laying in leaves, Pia loved the idea of playing with the leaves! What fun we had!
The following shots are some of my all time favorites! Pia loves reading and writing, so I knew this fun desk was perfect for our shoot!
One of my favorite things about Pia, is that she is such a ham!
We had to get some with the black rimmed glasses.
This is one of my favorite images from the shoot. I am so excited that it’s going to be made into a canvas to go above their piano. It’s so dreamy and whimsical.
We ended our shoot with some fun in the grass. Pia was such a joy to photograph and had a blast together!
Pia, I wish you the best in your future endeavors. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to celebrate you!
