My sister, Molly, who has been a model for me to practice on so many times, is finally a senior! When we found out we were going to Santa Barbara for Thanksgiving, I KNEW we had to do her pictures there. Being by the ocean brings out so much joy in her and it is the most beautiful thing to see someone so happy. Waist deep in water, even in shorts? Yes please!
Makeup by Molly herself (she did a dang good job!)
Shot at Fisherman’s Wharf and Arroyo Burro beach in Santa Barbara, California.
