julissa’s prom photos sans lazers and stars

High School senior prom pictures in San Diego by Ohana Photographers

we first met julissa years ago when she tagged along for her big sister serina’s pre-prom photo session in balboa park. she was adorable then, and she’s even more beautiful now. the only difference is now she’s all growns up and going to her own prom.

julissa’s mom and dad (monica and ruben) told us that their girls are really good so that’s why they wanted to go all out for them. we were thrilled to once again be included in the “all out” package, along with julissa’s beautiful black mermaid style dress (that looked amazing on her btw), and the sweet executive escalade from black onyx limos.

before i continue, i just want to say that there is a time and a place for backdrops with stars and/or lazers on them.

that time is never, and that place is not in front of my lens.

we headed out to the place where the surf hits the sand for some backdrop free photos of julissa and her long time friend / handsome date for the evening, gabriel.¬†they’re both awesome. one minute they’d be all vogue meets gq, and the next minute someone would crack a smile or make a face and everyone would start laughing. so fun! then there was that one rogue wave. apparently we didn’t get the memo that there are still some of those tsunami waves floating around out there, but in true ohana fashion, julissa shrugged off the salt water and sand and said our 7 favorite words…

“i’m never going to wear it again.”

did i mention that we love this girl? WE LOVE THIS GIRL!!!

i’m sure she smiled a little smile every time someone at the prom told her there was sand on her dress. speaking of her smile, it’s pure amazingness! every time she smiled during our session my trigger finger suddenly got heavy and made my shutter rattle off shots like a machine gun.

you are gorgeous julissa!

we hope you had loads of fun at your prom. congratulations!
