Covergirl California Dairy Princess by David Noceti

Got some pretty cool news the other day. Not only did one of our Class of 2015 seniors, current District 6 Dairy Princess, Makayla Toste, get featured in the 2017 August issue of California Dairy Magazine, and got the cover, BUT they also used our photos from her senior portrait session at the family dairy in Gustine California, both inside and for the cover!

How cool is that?

Dairy Princess California Makayla Toste

A closer look at the highlights from the section of the shoot that was featured throughout California Dairy Magazine, featuring Makayla Toste, current District 6 Dairy Princess.

Since I wasn’t doing a very good job about keeping up with the blog back in 2015, I never posted about this on our Melody and David Photography blog, so I thought I’d put together a little something here so that you can see more images from this first half of her senior portrait shoot. Being an all-around Ag girl, Makayla wanted photos in time for the yearbook and with the almond blossoms, so we did two shoots with her, one in fall, the second in spring.

Below you can see some of my favorites from the fall shoot, highlighting the dairy she grew up on, her commitment to FFA, and how you can go from country girl to belle of the ball in no time at all.

Congratulations Makayla! Keep up the good work!
