This lovely young lady is proof that it’s never too late to get senior portraits done. When things fell through with another photographer just weeks before graduation, Chelsea’s mom called me hoping I’d be able to fit them in and get them images to use for the screen display during her upcoming graduation ceremony.
We quickly scheduled a session at Reflections Lake and lucked out with decent weather the day after a spring snow storm! Most people would think the muted tones of the season aren’t ideal for photos, but it works for her.
Despite the chilly spring temps, this gal ROCKED her entire session and was up for anything I suggested. Her outfits showcased the different aspects of her personality, from casual and ready for adventure on Alaska’s trails to stylish and modern in a dress and heels. We used several spots around the lake to give her a variety of backgrounds, but each paled in comparison to her bubbly charm and contagious smile.
Her session was a family affair, with both her siblings and mom along for the trek around the lake. I think they enjoyed the experience as much as Chelsea did and they were always ready to help adjust little details or make a silly face to keep things real.
I was able to quickly get her several images to choose from in the week after her session, so she had options for the graduation ceremony display. Then I delivered the rest of her gallery a few days after graduation. Now that all of her images are done she’s got plenty to remember this special moment as she prepares for what comes next on her journey. I wish her the best of luck as she heads out into the next chapter of her life, but something tells me she’s one that creates her own luck!
