My senior portrait client Lily is such a beautiful ray of sunshine! This girl is such a fun, kind, sweet and intelligent young woman. I can't remember laughing more with a client during a session! I felt like I've known Lily for years even though we had just met.
Lily is into fashion, decorating, baking, nature and walking/biking at the park where we had her session. She has also spent the last few summers at Camp Orkila on Orcas Island as a counselor in training. I went there for one summer when I was 11 so that was really cool to find out. She is finishing her last year at Ballard High and also getting credits part-time at North Seattle College! WERK GIRL! I can't wait to see where you take yourself in this world!
We had such a great time hanging out at her session at the Olympic Sculpture Park. It was one of the most beautiful, crisp but sunny October evenings and the golden hour glow made for a stunning backdrop. All the warm fall tones mixing with the coolness of the ocean and sky really made Lily's gorgeous pale skin, freckles, and red hair POP. Also, her paisley velvet boots were amaaaaaazing! Loved her silk bomber jacket, too.
It's clients like Lily that truly make me love my job. I feel so insanely lucky to meet such amazing young ladies and their families that I would never have had the chance to know otherwise. I am so honored by all the girls that have chosen me to document this special time in their life. I'm not used to being so backlogged with client sessions in my retouching queue, but I'm so grateful to be busy and feeling like I am really getting my business flourishing. It's been so rewarding and such a good learning experience!
