So, I could be wrong, but when I was in high school, I don’t remember the girls being knockouts like this. I seem to remember them being sorta squirrely and nerd-like…oh, wait. Yep. That was probably just me. Anyway, I had the pleasure of taking this lovely lady’s senior portraits this past weekend at Mercer Botanic Gardens. They have a small patch of bluebonnets right now that are beautiful. It was crowded and hot, but you’d never be able to tell, because my model is clearly a pro at this.
Are you believing this beauty? This one is my favorite of the shoot. It was late afternoon and we were at the start of the “golden hour.” A little bit of sun flare, a little bit of greenery, gorgeous catchlights in her lovely eyes…LOVE. I wanted to show this one on the preview, because this ring is her mother’s senior ring. How sweet is that? You know I’m a sucker for sentimental stuff like this. I just don’t think you are allowed to call yourself a true Texan until you have a picture of yourself in rockin’ cowgirl boots in the bluebonnets. I may have to borrow those boots….:) I had to include one of this cutie pie in her cheer uniform, since it’s senior portraits. But, I thought black and white might be fun and a little unexpected. Sweet girl, thank you for a great shoot. I hope you love these and can’t wait to show you the rest.
Babies are born, and then suddenly they are high school seniors….that’s how raising this girl has felt to me. I never thought that the little munchkin we know and love as “sissy” would ever grow up into the young lady “Alyssa”. Words are not enough to express the way these photos have touched me Andrea. Because of your gift to capture moments in time, I will enjoy these photos for life…thank you from the Gamble family.
Whew. That might be the best compliment ever. Thank you.
