I first met Monique at a wedding where she was the maid of honor, and we’ve kept in touch ever since. When she asked me to shoot an anytime portrait session, I was more than happy to! Although it took us a while to finally lock in a date and select a location. We shot this session at the beautiful Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at Cal Stat Long Beach. If you don’t know about the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden, it’s also a very popular wedding spot in Southern California. The place is not really big, but offers a huge variety of places to shoot. Monique was such a good model, and I love how the pictures turn out! Vote for your favorite!!
Monique’s hair & makeup was by my good friend, and the very talented Karen Lee with Makeup By Karen Lee.
