Arailym is a Junior at Inderkum High School in Natomas, Sacramento CA. She came to my studio last week for a photo session. It was the very first time Arailym had her pictures taken and I was excited that she wanted to do photos during her junior year of high school. We all change and grow so much during high school and I think it is very important to have photos to look back and to share with our families and friends years down the road.
Arailym is 16 years old and is from Kazakhstan, she is studying at Inderkum as part of an exchange program, her goal is to improve her English and get to know a little of California. While I was doing her makeup she told me she had spent an awesome summer in the Golden State.
Once Arailym was done with makeup and styling we headed to North Natomas Regional Park hoping the sky would clear up after a very cloudy day. In the surroundings of the park I noticed a very nice wall with vines that had just started to turn red, we stopped for a few shots and after that we got a beautiful golden light from the sun, the sky was also starting to turn purple. It was an awesome opportunity for some shots in the grass at the golden hour. The sunset was terrific and I was able to get very cool shots by the water as well. Arailym was very happy during the shoot, I could tell it was an awesome experience for her.
Below are some of my favorite pictures from the session.
