Elizabeth describes herself as "a little quirky." I say she really is just comfortable in her own skin.
We started her session outside our studio at the Historic McKinney Cotton Mill. I was so excited about putting the chair in the middle of these flowers. As we walked out to take the pictures, the lawn service was in the middle of cutting them down. I am so glad we didn't have a video of my running across the field waving my arms like a mad person trying to stop them before they got to my spot. Whew. Now this is a parking lot so Elizabeth got the last session the wildflowers at this location.
We ran over to a nearby lake to capture some images before the sun got too high. Elizabeth really can rock the serious look!
She can also let loose and have fun as well....must be that drama background!
We came back to the Cotton Mill to finish her session. I just love the contrast between her ivory dress and the deep rustic greens and browns of the mill. So beautiful!
Love love love her sense of style. Thank goodness she chose a Glam and Style session so that our stylist was on hand to pull up her hair to match the sophisticated whimsy of her outfit!
I love a senior girl that loves her car. Elizabeth's is named after Shaun's car in her favorite show "Psych" - sadly no longer on the air....
We ended the session playing with some different backgrounds. This was where my photography education and training really came into play. It was almost noon and in full sun. We were able to use additive lighting to light her face in balance with the sun behind her so that nothing was blown out in the image. I think this is one of my favorites!
Love this girl! I am so blessed she was a part of my Class of 2015 Senior Model Team.
