This was my first photoshoot as Persephone Studios way back in January 2017! This was also my very first photoshoot after studying under my mentor for half the year. I implemented a bunch of new techniques for these shots, including using enormous 4’x8’ reflectors to create a natural, dreamy lighting effect. We used only the sun filtering into my home studio for all of these shots.
I’m still so proud of these portraits and I’m very grateful for the time spent creating these. Thank you, Maria!
We even did some cute snaps inspired from some select Pinterest boards.
These artsy ones were inspired by ballet. I had this flower crown for years - it was perfect for these shots!

Contact the studio to learn more about booking your own shoot! Most shoots I do now take place outdoors so that we can take advantage of the beauty that is the California coast.
