San Diego Model Portraits

Downtown San Diego Waterfront :: Model Fashion Creative Portraits by Anna Bader

The day of this shoot was one of those days I felt nervous and unsure. I was overthinking and exhausted, but thankfully, I've learned to SHOW UP. I've learned to trust the process, lean into the unknown and uncomfortable and let it be. 

Boy, am I glad I did.

This turned into one of my favorite shoots to date. 

My model Ellie is gold! She is game for anything and has the most epic hair (obviously!) as well as a laugh and spirit to match! 

San Diego always holds a little bit of magic, this evening did not disappoint - from golden hour to blue hour and all!

Take a gander!


She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and no city.
