Every senior comes to me for different reasons, and with different inspiration behind what they want for their milestone portrait sessions. Some want to stretch their creative wings with an edgy experience and location, some want something very natural in the great outdoors. I love meeting the seniors for the first time so I can hear from them. After all, I believe the biggest part of photography is not only my own vision of how I’d love the shoot to go, but also incorporating what they want to have as a finished product. Chloe is a stunning young woman, who is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside. She has high ambitions and takes every obstacle in stride, which makes her a pretty amazing force to be reckoned with. She’s graduating in June of 2019, and she really is excited to move on to a four year university to earn her bachelor’s degree (and later, her master’s degree). Chloe is very passionate about sports medicine, and dreams of one day studying that in college.
“Now that I am a senior, I wish I had known as a freshman, to just be myself. Everyone is always focused on themselves in high school, and I wish I had known not to waste time trying to impress people who didn’t matter”, she explained, “These days, I look up to people like my mom, who is my best friend. She always manages to balance her busy schedule and finds time to still hang out with me. She is the one person who is always there for me, and always knows what to say”. Such wisdom! I think we can all learn from her intellect and words. I always learn so much from these amazing seniors! When it came time to book senior portraits, Chloe says, “I chose LWP because I had many friends who had used you last year, and all of their pictures were amazing.” I was thrilled to work with her, although she made it pretty easy! We chose these stunning locations together, and her outfits were a perfect match. Her personal style is something she describes as “casual”, so we made sure that everything reflected the styles she was wearing.
Thank you, Chloe, for sharing your wit and wisdom with me, and for allowing me to do your senior photos! If you need someone to capture your senior year, please contact me!
