I first met her several years ago when I photographed her and her family. She was still a little shy at that time, but even then, I just LOVED her look! So much so, that you may have seen her face all over Facebook as a model for a few of my photographer workshops. She'd probably kill me if I pulled one of those pics from that first session, so I used the above image I snagged at the workshop to show you why I literally GASPED out loud when she showed up for her senior portrait session this summer:
Her HAIR!!! All of that beautiful red hair...GONE!!! But you know what? I totally loved the cut and she really pulls this style off, doesn't she? The asymmetry is super cool and it makes her look oh-so-artsy.
We had an amazing time at her session expressing her creative side. My fav was the paint brush bouquet ;-). Or maybe it was the broken glass that kept catching my eye on the street. I finally had to find some way to photograph her with it...just pulled out my trusty dusty blanket and voila...broken glass bokeh (safely). Here's another snap I took of the glass while she was getting ready:
I'm such a sucker for anything sparkly ;-)
It was a pleasure to get to work with her again and I very much look forward to seeing her show up in one of my Anthropologie catalogs someday! (If you think it, it will happen).
