This high school senior session was a very special shoot for me. Brianne is the daughter of a dear friend of mine and I have watched her grow over the last 13 years while we have lived near this incredible family. From Barbies and easter egg hunts, snowboarding in Tahoe and soccer championships, trips to the beach, new puppies, boys and shopping for formal dances... I have watched her whiz by as she has changed from that little cutie pie with the beautiful lashes and skinned soccer knees to this amazingly gorgeous woman... with her signature lashes and still skinned up soccer knees! And all along the way I have so greatly admired this awesome kid with her head so square on her shoulders, sincere kindness to share with all she meets, and a coolness about her that makes you just know she is going places in this world. Brianne, I look at you with tears in my eyes as you are about to start this next chapter in your life... knowing that my daughters will soon be right there behind you... and if they end up possessing half the grace and greatness you own, I am sure to be one happy mama.
We had such fun on her shoot, hitting many spots that reflect her funkiness... it was hard to stop when the sun went down!
So, here's to you, Brianne... I can't wait to see what you do with the rest of your life. Continue to enjoy all of your special moments... and think about coming back this direction and becoming a real LOCAL one day! Ha...
