We started planning Hannah’s freshman session when I launched my Ultimate High School Experience plan in August. AUGUST, you guys… We have scheduled and rescheduled this session at least 5 times because of weather and the day we shot it was *incredibly* windy, but we went ahead and rolled with it because the thought of putting it off again was just annoying for all of us!
I am so glad we rolled with it because the end result was so good, you guys. I love how her hair is blowing in the wind and there’s so much movement in every shot. It wasn’t the easiest thing – shooting in the crazy wind, but it was fun. My assistant may have almost been blown away like a kite with the reflector… There were lots of laughs to say the least!
Hannah wanted something a little more urban for her portrait session, so we found some cool alleys and just hung out around Springfield — one of my favorite things to do. I love having a plan that involves not actually having a plan.
For Hannah’s session, she brought two outfits and I grabbed the final look from the style closet in the studio. I love the flow of her outfit changes and the overall vibe she brought to the camera. I can’t wait to take this girl’s photos for the next 3 years, y’all!
For those of you who don’t know, I have a portrait plan that actually starts freshman year and runs all the way through high school. This is called my “Ultimate High School Experience” and space for these spots is limited, as I only take a handful of these clients each year. The goal is to capture their changes from year to year and different sides of their personality. I also pull from these kiddos when I need extra models for different things! We really become like family and that’s what I love so much.
Thanks for picking me to document your high school experience, Hannah!! I can’t wait to make more magic with you!
PS: I’m glad Emma hung out for a little while too! I love sweet sister pics!
