Allaina suggested The College of Wooster for her fall photo session. I had never shot there, so I was game to try something new. It ended up being perfect! The trees were brilliant in oranges, yellows, and reds and the ground was beginning to accumulate a carpet of leaves that had fallen. There were interesting architectural details on campus and we found a playful yellow Adirondack chair that added a great pop of color as well. We also had the added bonus of live music as Allaina was posing--The College of Wooster marching band was rehearsing a Queen song for much of the session! That just added to the fun:)
I have taken photos of Allaina since the summer before her junior year, when she agreed to be a practice model for me as I started my photography business. I was then her official senior photographer this past year, taking photos of her in a variety of settings, including a farm shoot with her 4-H animals. Allaina is my most photographed senior and, oh, how I will miss having her gorgeous face and big brown eyes in front of my camera! I even joked to her mom to please have her wait another year to graduate. It makes me a bit sad to have our senior photoshoots coming to an end. But I think Allaina is ready for the next stage of her life and I'm excited for all the wonderful things in store for her as she begins college life. So thank you, Allaina, for choosing me to be the one clicking my camera to capture your senior portraits. I've loved every single moment with you and it has been a true honor. And at least I have one more session of you at the rink with your skates on to look forward to!
