Mikala’s beach portrait session was a bit like dress up for me! So unlike other typical sessions, Mikala is a part of my close family and on our trip to Destin, I was able to do some hair, makeup, and outfit styling 😉 While Mikala is no stranger to being dressed up for recitals in various outfits and full on stage makeup, she isn’t quite the one to dress up on a regular occasion. Typically you can find Mikala in t-shirts, jeans, and boots somewhere at the barn with our horses – which was absolutely my standard attire during summers at our farm!

But for this session, I wanted to get her dressed up a bit 🙂 – not in her typical dancer attire but a little bite more like a night out on the town! I also wanted to dress her in cool color tones that would look really great photographed against the Destin white sands and that beautiful beach sunset sky. We topped off the look with a light pink gloss that would pair well with her dress.

Just look at this gorgeous model of a girl! She is STUNNING!

Notice that horseshoe necklace? This is a little tradition between Ranna (not pictured), Mikala, & myself. We all have the same James Avery horseshoe necklace engraved with our names – something that we cherish together as a sister like token.

Instead of photographing right up next to the water, we stepped back into the shade of the dunes where we got a beautiful soft glow

Her smile is absolutely gorgeous. And she Effortlessly poses like the graceful dancer she is
