I’ve gotta say, I was a little overwhelmed when I saw the van full of clothing and instruments Ashley arrived with on the day of her senior session.
She had her mom and boyfriend in tow to help unload it all and we rolled up our sleeves and got right to work! Or fun, I should say!
I was glad I have accumulated so many backgrounds over the years because I needed quite a few for the thirteen, yes, I said THIRTEEN outfits! 🙂
I guess it’s unlimited, after all! LOL!
I can’t say that I regret offering an unlimited session, because it’s girls like Ashley that are really invested in making their senior portraits special that drive me into that creative zone.
I just love playing around with portraits of guitarists. Ashley had some beautiful guitars and I love the studio shots we created, but the country girl in me adores this one with her acoustic guitar out in the flowers.
Funny story with these shots… Ashley is wearing a butterfly necklace, butterfly earrings, and a butterfly ring… and you wouldn’t guess, but a tiny lavender butterfly landed on her finger while we were shooting this. It didn’t want to leave either. It landed on her guitar strings and everything! Pretty awesome senior portrait experience if I do say so myself! 🙂
Check out all the awesome pictures in the slideshow! There’s more musical ones… the banjo with the speeding train is another one of my absolute faves… and the ones of her on point in her ballet shoes are rockin’ too!
Such a talented and beautiful girl!
Unique. That’s definitely the word I would use to describe the lovely and talented Julia. At first I thought she was going to move in, when she arrived with all her bags of clothes, accessories and other fun items!
I got to know quite a bit about her as we had the photo session. For example, she plays flute and piccolo, but prefers the latter. She also has an obsession with penguins and loves to collect them… and last year her prom dress was this show-stopping purple number.
Gotta love a girl with a unique personality that’s not afraid to be herself!
