Summer Portrait Session at the Salton Sea in Southern California

Fun & Adventure Awaits!

It’s time to get out & explore the wild side of Southern California! The area is full of incredible places to have a Model-like Portrait Experience that Sharon Wallace photography is known for. The Salton Sea area is an incredibly rich visual area to shoot. It is constantly changing due to the biennual artists show where creatives come from all over the world to create & display their art at Bombay Beach.


Black & White or Color?

Creatively speaking the color at Bombay Beach is amazing! Converting a few images to black & white – is always a treat because of the contrast the many colors & signatures & messages the creatives leave. They really pop out of the artwork & I think juxtapose the fashion style. I love how Asha’s dress really pops in this image!

Beach Accessories!

It really wouldn’t be a true Beach Fashion Styled Shoot without a few images with a beach hat! I love how the hat makes her eyes pop as they peek out from under the brim. This area is along the old pilings from a pier at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea in Southern California.

If you want the unexpected in your images, get out & explore!

Adventure on!



Favorite Summer Style!

This is one of my absolute favorite images from the Summer Portrait Session at the Salton Sea in Southern California. The pilings make the perfect backdrop to set off her beautiful image. I love how the back light frames her beautifully & makes her image stand out.

She is a real trooper for hanging in the shoot! I wish you had smell-a-vision! The white sand is not really sand but fish bones….Yes, this is an apocalyptic experience that permeates all of your senses. It’s hard to explain if you have never visited the Salton Sea, but, let’s just say the hotter it gets outside the more pungent the smell.


Color & Texture!

You can find any color or texture imaginable here at Bombay Beach. Just do a little searching & you can find a wall or a scene perfect for any outfit! I love how Asha’s jumper & earrings match the wall in this abandoned building. Thank you to the artist who painted it! The second image is a favorite shooting ground – ‘Bombay Beach Drive-In” Two years ago I was at the beach shooting when the artist was working on this lot. He was wielding the sign which I love!!!!

4 Reasons to do your Senior Portraits in the Summer…

4 Reasons

To D

Your Senior Portrait

In The Summer!

1 – Time!

Wow! Time is a big deal! To have an Epic Senior Portrait Experience with Sharon Wallace Photography, Summer is the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Summers allow you the time to plan for & then style – shop for the perfect outfit to show off your unique style and personality. Have a stress free portrait experience without worrying about those fall year book deadlines. You will have your image ready in plenty of time.

2 – Weather!

Summer time is best time for your Senior Portrait Experience because the weather is more cooperative. No freezing temperatures or snow. The sun will be shining most of the time & if you get a nice summer storm, it will typically blow on through in the summer and leave it nice and cool for a portrait session.

3 – Location!

Your Summer Portrait Session can be held on location in a destination of your dreams in the summer! There is plenty of opportunities to travel or get to the mountains without snow chains, the deserts, or the beaches. Be ready to sport your style in a summer location. Summertime means longer days so plenty of opportunity for the Golden Hour shots!

4 – Be A Trend Setter!

Trend setters are so much fun! Lead your Class in setting the latest fashion trends. Be the first to show off your unique images and leave your friends speechless that you have your Senior year starting off right!

Lyrissa, tell us a little about you!


“I got into makeup by participating in all-star cheer. From the age of 7, I’ve competed with glitter on my eyes, red lips, rosy cheeks and I adored it. Makeup was part of the performance aspect, so I didn’t start wearing heavy makeup, full face, until high school. I believe the purpose of makeup isn’t to change someone’s appearance, but rather enhance it. I love that every face is different; each client is a blank canvas to me. I get to create a look on them, that will compliment skin tone, and eye color but still have the client looking like themselves. 

  Being photographed by Sharon was an amazing experience. The shoot didn’t feel impersonal, I’ve experienced so with other photographers. It wasn’t an atmosphere of being told do this pose, and then this one, it was more natural. I was told to walk, twirl, play with my dress and so forth. I took a pair of converse to switch into from heels not expecting to be photographed in them, and Sharon never suggested I switch back into my heels. I’m the girl who wears converse with dresses, and she captured that. From start to finish the shoot was me. Overall, I had a blast and the pictures came out beautiful”.
