A few months ago I got an email from Samantha with an interesting request. She was turning 21 and wanted to hire me to shoot photos of her with all her closest friends! This big crew trecked out here to OC to shoot with me last week and we had a blast. They are such a nice group and were all willing to be photographed to celebrate Samantha's birthday.

Besides being adorable, these guys are SMART--Samantha says that when they graduate from college in a few months, most of them are headed to medical school!

Here's some of my faves from our shoot below.

We started out with the gang in casual clotthes strolling down the street

All the girls (8 future Jessica Claire brides?)

You didn't really think I'd leave out the individual shots, did you?
