This young lady is amazing! It is quite normal to feel shy in front of a camera. Chloe certainly did starting out, but warmed right up.
She had EXCELLENT suggestions as well. She was so much fun to be with and work with. I can only hope I'll have some reason to photograph her again one day. One time wasn't enough!
Isn't Chloe just stunning? I took many more photos than necessary, and had a VERY hard time narrowing it down to my normal 30 in a session. Her skin, her hair, her eyes, and her style...
There was something about going back to my hometown (even though I don't live far) and experiencing the atmosphere with the morning regulars. Classic cars parked outside the cafe, old men standing around visiting, and the alligator sleeping were all enough to make me nostalgic. What a wonderful town!
Chloe had major back surgery a year ago. Despite that, she is on the swim team. You wouldn't believe the muscles this girl has! Maybe she should train me. :) Anyhow, she certainly earned the right to rock this letter jacket!
If I have one regret it's that I didn't have senior portraits like this taken of myself. I worked the summer before my senior year, so I certainly could have paid for it. I know my kids would love looking back at me in my youth. I know I'd enjoy looking back and seeing myself right when I was not ready/ready to tackle the world outside of this hometown.
