Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Clara Bella Photography, located in Dallas, Texas!
“This was a 2015 senior session for the sweet and effortlessly gorgeous, Lauren! Lauren is a Texas senior with a California style, who just so happens to be both stunning AND smart. She is involved in the Honor society and several other clubs at school, and aspires to attend UCLA! This session quickly turned into an adventure when we had a spur-of-the-moment location change. When we arrived at our original location, Lauren had mentioned her hopes to shoot in an open meadow for her last outfit. It was then that we decided to ditch our original plans for location #2 and venture to a nearby lake instead. We chose this location because I was told there was easy access to large open fields across from the lake. The boat dock just happened to be a surprise bonus feature! Luckily we were able to sweet talk our way onto the dock, and the tall sails and sparkling waters made for a fun and unique backdrop for our beautiful subject. Lauren was also able to get those dreamy meadow shots she had imagined, looking like a golden goddess!”
Inspiration: “This session was inspired entirely by Lauren in the efforts to make her visions come to life. We offer each senior up to 5 outfit changes per session, but the look that was most important to Lauren was her vision of the warm and dreamy meadow! Her first two looks were fall inspired, and her last two looks embraced her california girl, “young and free” style. To complement her Dallas roots, she wore her cowgirl boots for a few shots as well!”
Gear: “For this shoot I used my Canon 5D MarkII and my 85mm fixed lens.”

Clara Bella Photography shared: “My name is Morgan Blackburn and I am the Associate photographer for Clara Bella Photography. At Clara Bella Photography, we offer a fun and an all-inclusive experience with professionalism and personal attention. We are a natural light, on-location photography studio based out of Dallas Texas and Palm Beach Florida. I am originally from San Diego California, but in May of 2014 I had the exciting opportunity to join the team at Clara Bella. It took but a split second to ma ke the most exciting and rewarding decision of my life to follow my passion all the way to Dallas! As a photographer, I absolutely LOVE the art of photography and the freedom for creativity. However, I take most pride in how we make our clients feel when they leave our sessions. My favorite thing about specializing in high school seniors is getting the opportunity to build relationships and connect with the girls. Our clients become partners in the creative process and are directly involved in the artistic expression. We create a comfortable environment for the girls to express their individuality and each voice is heard as an artistic contribution to the final piece! Each session is a new chance to empower young women because self-confidence is where REAL beauty truly begins.”
