Jennifer was a debutante herself from grades 7-12 in Newport Beach so we were honored to become the main photographer in the chapter she grew up in. Every year since 2004, we have photographed this chapter’s Rainbow Luncheon and Tea, Fashion Show, Father/Daughter Tribute, the Debutante Ball, and 30+ senior portrait sessions each year. Here is the 2018 Newport Beach Debutante Ball featured in the LA Times/Daily Pilot. 2016 also was published 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.
We have also been honored to photograph many other chapters of National Charity League as well as Assistance League and Las Madrecitas (Las Ninas).
2016 was our first year with the Las Madrecitas (Las Ninas) charity group. This event was featured in the Daily Breeze and the Palos Verdes Peninsula News. We just photographed this year’s Nas Ninas rose ceremony and fashion show and can’t wait for the next Evergreen Ball! 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.
The Newport-Mesa chapter started back in 1940! They are the 3rd largest chapter in the country. We have worked with the Newport-Mesa chapter for a few years now. Here is an article about the 2015 ball featured in the Newport Beach Indy. For more info about this great organization, visit the Newport Mesa Assistance League.

We are also able to go to other locations. If you want to be photographed with your horse, we will come to you. If you want to go to the beach, no problem! Let us know what you are thinking.
Yes. If your chapter is not local to Newport Beach, we can come to a location of your choice on one designated day to photograph all the seniors. We can bring a backdrop or use the location scenery of your choice.
