Meet Danielle senior class of 2015. Danielle is a just a straight awesome senior. Laid back, Cool, and just straight easy going. Danielle wanted to do a trio of locations ranging from urban to beach. We spent the majority of a Saturday afternoon with her and her mom Patrica. We could not have had a better time. Laughing and joking from the very start.
For her first location she wanted to do a high fashion urban theme, and boy did she come dressed for it. Her skirt and shirt just screamed high fashion, and did we mention the shoes? Yeah cheetah print heels for sure. We wandered the back alleys and city streets looking for the perfect spots to shoot. Let me say boy did we find some good spots. We even ended up on the city hall steps. She stole all the attention of passing cars as well. As I stood across the sreet waiting for the clearing to get that one shot.
From the city we headed deep into the country to an old historic castle to shoot in the vineyards. The light and setting were absolutely perfect for this session. Add a little fill flash, and BAM gorgeous. We joked constantly and got so many unposed laughs and smiles out of her. Just to show the true personality of Danielle. The vineyards proved to be my favorite of the whole session. Just look at the gorgeous images we got.
We could not have asked for a better location for the casual part of her session. The grass fading into winter dormancy, the vines yielding grapes and fading to yellow, and don’t forget the historic house in the back.
Even the bridge leading us back to the car was so perfect we just had to stop. Simply put her on a bench, and put my lights up. The rest we just talked and laughed while I constantly took shots. Even got a duck face in there somewhere ( no worries we wont show that one ). Overall just an absolute great time here.
Lastly Danielle wanted a beach session. PERFECT because we loooovvvvveeeee beach sessions. She went with a straight up casual jeans and shirt. Well it was perfect until we arrived……….we got out the car, and BAM 30+ mph winds were coming straight off the water. So not only was it a bit chilly, but we got straight sandblasted in the process.
Danielle was still a trooper, and put on a very cute outfit matching sweater. She marched on through the wind and sand like there was no problem. Regardless of the weather we got some gorgeous images. We even pulled out some sunset shots. My lights….wellll……they didn’t work on a stand so had to be hand held by my daughter. Coming through like a hero to save the lighting day.
Danielle as we learned is a very intelligent, and level headed girl. My favorite quote from her is going to be this “ I am actually most proud of finding myself and learning to be my own person, to do what makes me happy. Although I’m only 17 I feel over the years I have made a lot of improvements in my life thanks to my close friends and family.” Spoken like a true philosopher even adding this ” I have a very small amount of close friends, I mostly keep to myself, I would rather have 2 best friends than a million acquaintances!” For this Danielle we truly admire you, and you will go far in life ahead of you.
Congratulations Danielle Class of 2015.
