El Mirage Lake Desert Portrait Session - Los Angeles Portrait Photogrpaher


When Savannah reached out and told me she was interested in a photoshoot while she was visiting LA to finish her album by way of Manhattan, I was thrilled! Then, to take my excitement to the next level - she had high hopes for shooting at El Mirage Lake, which is a dried out lakebed in the desert of Southern California, about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles. The area is used for a lot for OHV enthusiasts and though none of those enthusiasts were in sight this day, I could only imagine the fun you can have out there! The wind was whipping around fiercely (especially at the start of the shoot), giving us some incredible movement with hair and the sun was giving us the most dreamy light during golden hour. Both of these things together gave us the opportunity to create beautiful images from our time together. Thanks Savannah for the opportunity to go on this adventure!
