Walking on Sunshine…..that song came to mind when I was shooting and editing Grace’s Senior Pictures.
Any guesses what her favorite color is?
Grace loves to play the ukulele so she brought it along for the session. Sadly when we were done with these photos, the ukulele broke! I hope you got a new one Grace!
Funny connection here. Grace and my nephew Josiah went to preschool and elementary school together. She even came to one of his birthday parties (which my son and I were there too), so you can say that even though we didn’t know it….we go way back! I love how small the world is. Who knew 12+ years ago (when I wasn’t even doing photography) that I would meet a young girl who I would later photograph for senior pictures.
As if that isn’t enough of a connection, Grace goes to the same school as my son. They know of each other but I don’t think they have ever had any classes or anything together. Again, small world.
Grace is a beautiful combination of being adventurous and spontaneous but also really grounded, down to earth and practical. That is such a rare combination and should be celebrated!
She is a NATURAL in front of the camera and I barely had to give her any direction. Grace, you nailed it!
Bring on the props!! It always adds such a fun element to the session. Aren’t these photos with the balloons so cute?
Thankfully overalls are making a comeback and I am HERE.FOR.IT.
Here is another addition of “Lisa sticks someone in a bush and makes photo magic”. See how I made the picture on the left look like she is in the middle of a forest, when in reality you can see her on the right on a bridge. Magic, right?
Each outfit Grace pulled out was full of yellow and I loved every minute of it.
She also had the most variety of jewelry and was highly organized when it came to changing it out for each outfit.
Love that twinkle in her eyes and you know I am a sucker for freckles.
We timed the session perfectly and were rewarded with the most delicious golden hour lighting at the end.
She wears glasses most of the time, but we had to get a few shots without glasses and honestly, I think she looks adorable both ways, right?!
I was swooning when she pulled out the Doc Martin combat boots and had cute boot socks to match.
This is why I always tell seniors to save their favorite outfit for the end! They are more comfortable and the light is amazing.
You know what else I love about Grace. She knows what she wants and goes for it. Most of the time I am contacted by mom or dad to do senior sessions. But Grace took charge and contacted me and took care of all the details, planning and communication with me. It was amazing! Of course her mom was 100% on board but I love that she let Grace take the wheel and make it her own. I always try to get a picture of mom (or dad) with the senior, but Grace’s cousin tagged along too. Aren’t they all so cute?
Grace you and your session were full of sunshine and I loved it. I hope your senior year has been good despite the global pandemic!
