Class of 2019 College Park High School
When I receive a request for a senior portrait session, I always get excited. It’s such a pleasure to meet these young people, the next generation. They’re about to make one of the biggest transitions of their lives, and they have the entire world at their fingertips. After high school, each one of them has an infinite number of paths to take with nothing holding them back. It’s the perfect moment to chase after their dreams, and each one of the seniors I capture holds so much potential! These are the next group of world changers!
About the session
So, when Makena and her mother booked a session with me, I couldn’t wait to meet her. Sure enough, Makena is an amazing young lady. She beams with compassion, kindness, and confidence. She has the most welcoming smile, and this girl is an absolute beauty. She didn’t even need much directing since she was so natural in front of the lens, moving with such grace! There wasn’t one bad photo in Makena’s entire gallery. She made my job super easy and fun.
For the first part of the shoot, we went for a natural, outdoor look. The sunlight gave us some warm lighting as it reflected on the golden grasses in the field. Beautiful! These photos really fit her warm personality. And, as you can see, ballet is her passion! So for Part II, we headed to a more urban location to showcase her amazing ballet skills. We had a slight parking issue, but she just went with the flow, not letting the bump get in the way of capturing these amazing photos. I was mesmerized by her art. She looked lighter than air as she floated on her toes—although I know these positions take incredible strength and flexibility. Stunning.
I know Makena has many great adventures ahead of her, and I feel so blessed to have met this incredible young woman. I wish her the very best in her bright future ahead!
