Tulle, heels, florals…I am in love with every aspect of this beautiful session! Makayla is a graceful dancer, and I loved incorporating hints of her passion into her session and styling. She has a friendly personality, and says, “I am sometimes a reserved person, but my friends know I am also sociable! I really hope my classmates will remember me as someone who was very nice”. I love that her sweet spirit radiates in all of these images, and I feel lucky that I got to be her senior photographer. Of course, dance is a big part of her life, and she was also a gymnast for an impressive twelve years. Her favorite memories from her time in high school include performing in various dance shows, and also working hard choreographing and working on new dances. We did her session along the Tahoe shoreline, and in Aspen Grove, which was so beautiful and ideal for this beautiful girl.
When it comes to personal style, she is just as adept with shopping as she is on the dance floor! Makayla says she enjoys dressing for the summer months more than any other season, and her vision for what her shoot wardrobe included things that were grown-up and glamorous. I think the full tulle skirt fit the bill! She enjoys scoping out the latest trends at Fashionnova online, and calls her personal style something along the lines of “urban hipster”. After her graduation, she plans to study psychology and dance at college. I wish her all the best as she continues her big dreams, and I know someday I’ll be able to look back and say I knew her when!
Makayla found my photography through her friend Kaylee, and I’m super grateful for referrals like that…word of mouth is something so important, and is the reason I want all my clients to walk away confident and thrilled with their images! Please contact me HERE for more info.
