As I’ve said repeatedly, I love shooting seniors and I love shooting senior girls even more. And I love when they bring their friends along because it helps bring out their true personality.
While I love when parents come to the sessions, I pretty much know that the senior will not open up as much or will feel intimidated with a parent around. I mean, do the kids really want to open up about their relationships or the latest weekend drama when mom is around? Yeah, I didn’t think so. (But for the record, I do enjoy when a parent or two come to the session – I can’t imagine how emotional it is for them.)
Anyways, Hailee brought two of her friends, one of whom I’ve had a session with already. As always, it takes a little time to warm up and while Hailee started out shy and giggly, she soon brought out her inner runway model and cranked out some of my favorite images to date. Of course, the girls kept me entertained, as young girls tend to do with their stories.
We started out at Don’s Classic Car Projects between Hayti and Kennett. I really love that place and there’s so much to use out there, as you will see from Hailee’s session. We then made our way back into town and found a really awesome (read: old) gas pump. Hailee’s sparkling blue eyes just put the icing on the cake with her images.
Hailee, thank you for a great session and I enjoyed getting to meet you. Congratulations on your graduation and best wishes on your future!
