I have to say this...I didn't know Anna going into this shoot, and I'm sure we were both a little nervous to jump into and start the session without knowing barely anything about each other. but dang, this was one of my all time favorite senior shoots!! She completely warmed up halfway through and said "I'm down for anything!" I felt like I was able to get much more creative behind the camera knowing she was receptive to that, and we had a total blast. I didn't want it to end!!
I think what I love most about this shoot was that, even going in as strangers, when my clients trust me (and tell me that!) I come alive behind the lens and in turn, so do my clients. Senior shoots can feel awkward for the client, because you're totally on the spot and it's not normal to be in front of the camera like that...I get it. But as soon as you embrace it for what it is and have FUN, everything changes- expressions, personality, and the freedom to just be yourself and let me capture that. I couldn't WAIT to go home and edit this shoot, so I hope you enjoy these shots as much as I did! Thanks, Annaleigh, for an incredible evening and allowing me to capture this special time in your life! (Also, shout out to her sweet boyfriend who came along and made her smile and laugh way more than I could've!!)
