Orange County and Los Angeles Debutante Photographer

Gilmore Studios has been photographing debutantes since 2003. Jennifer was a debutante herself from grades 7-12 in Newport Beach so she jumped at the opportunity to photograph the chapter she grew up in! Every year since, we have photographed this chapter’s rainbow luncheon and tea, Mother tribute and fashion show, the Deb Ball, and 30+ senior portrait sessions. Check out the 2016 Newport Beach Debutante Ball recently featured in the Daily Pilot/Los Angeles Times.  The 2015 NCL ball was featured in the Newport Indy. The 2014 ball was featured in the LA Times. Here is the 2013 ball featured in the OC Register.

Las Madrecitas is an auxiliary of the Charitable Children’s Guild of the Orthopædic Institute for Children in Los Angeles. For more info about this amazing charity, please visit their website.
