Might get a little emotional writing this, so I reached out to the best graduation gift I got (Yes, way back in 2003!!) for the words... So, mama, thank you for giving me the coolest gift ~ Dr. Seuss :)Read More
Senior, Claiborne Academy Class of 2016
After a month of planning to blog about my shoots, I'm finally getting it together! Working an 8-5 as well as photographing, I was trying to prioritize the shoots themselves and editing above blogging and social media, but I love sharing my clients sessions, so here I go! I struggled with what shoot to start blogging with, and timing has hit perfect for me to start with Miss Hannah White.
This one is going to be hard, because I've known Hannah for a very long time and it's crazy to think she is going to be a Senior!! It makes me feel old :O I can remember when I was starting my senior year and the excitement I felt like it was yesterday! I'm so excited for Hannah and this year she has ahead of her! I'm so proud of her and the woman she is becoming; it's becoming more rare to come across girls who have hearts like hers :)
My favorite thing about this session was that Hannah was up for anything! She knew I was wanting to head to Shreveport and just play, and she was down! I love that she trusted me to give her a location, while allowing her to be unique and herself!All she requested was a shot with a big red balloon! As we were driving into Downtown Shreveport, the bottom fell out! Where the rain came from, we had no clue, but we were ready for anything!
We got a break in the rain and took advantage! I can't get over these colors and how they just make her pop!
And of course, it started raining again, so we took cover (or she did, anyways) ~ it might have turned into my favorite shot!
Realizing it was NOT going to let up for a while, we decided to get creative...
Once it finally stopped, we went for our main shot! I love the childlike feel that this photo exudes ~ coming from a small town, the structure and tone of it really exhibits the reluctance, fear and excitement of stepping out in this great big world.
I am so proud of Hannah and who she has become. I can't wait to see what God has in store for her :) Congratulations girl! Love you!!
