Edgy, boho, whimsical… those are just a few words I would use to describe this high school seniors portrait session. I have said it once, but I will say it again.. Since when did high school seniors start looking older than me…? I am 25 and I still look 12… But it seems every senior I document, they all look 26?!! Guess theres something in the water now a days…
This portrait session was refreshing. And it was so “Gracie”. And I am so proud of these images. It’s crazy how I met Gracie the moment we started taking these photos and by the end I felt like I really got her — her style, her vibe, what she was about. That’s the rewarding part of photography that isn’t talked about a lot. People show me their soul… and they show me fast… and I get to document that… what kind of trickery is that? You can go years having a friend or acquaintance and never know their soul, yet I get that in a matter of minutes. Thats reward right there. And I treasure having that access to each and every human I get to document.
Thank you all for trusting me, showing me your soul, and being free enough to have that documented.
