This Littleton Senior Pictures session was bittersweet for me. I have done all of the Stevens’ girls senior pictures and Maya is the last one!
Maya and my oldest son have gone to school together since Kindergarten! Although I don’t think they have had many classes together the last 5-6 years. Funny how they go to the same school and yet hardly see each other.
In addition to that, her mom was my middle son’s Kindergarten teacher and she is simply the best. You can’t ask for a more kind and caring woman to teach your children how to be a Kindergartener. Maya has so many of those great qualities from her mama. Such a kind soul!
Beautiful on the inside and out! She could be a model with those big brown eyes!
Sometimes brown eyes get a bad rap and they are the step child of the “coveted” blue eyes. But I am a brown-eyed girl and therefore want to give brown eyes the appreciation they deserve!
Maya chose Lair O’ The Bear for her senior session and I loved it. It is often too crowded in the summertime (or anytime actually) but on this beautiful summer morning, we had the area to ourselves.
She even dipped her toes into the chilly water. And yes, even in the middle of the summer this water is ice cold.
Don’t look too closely or you will see the goosebumps. 😂
Oh Colorado…how we love you in the beginning of summer when you are green and lush.
This is yet another “magic” photo. One thing you have to learn as a photographer is to block out things that are distracting and make the photo look distraction free. Behind Maya’s head is a parking lot full of cars. By positioning her head in the right place, I was able to block all of that and make this photo look fantastic. You would never know that lurking behind this tree is an ugly parking lot full of cars.
Another perk of taking pictures in the mountains is the wildlife. We saw a prancing deer just after taking this picture.
Maya is on the tennis team at D’Evelyn and therefore we had to incorporate that into her pictures.
I love it when seniors bring props that are important to their high school career.
Thanks Stevens family for being so loyal to me and for letting me be a part of your family for the last 6+ years!! I am sad that I won’t see you for senior pictures in the future!
