Tip to Seniors--bring a hat! Allaina brought one for her mini session at Secrest Arboretum and I'm so glad she did. There is just something really fun about posing with a hat. It is an easy way to change up a look and it highlights and brings attention to the eyes. And speaking of eyes--how big and sparkly and brown are Allaina's? Wow. Just wow. Her eyes are simply amazing! I'm in awe of them.
Allaina is a competitive figure skater and she brings a lot of sassy attitude with her when she takes the ice to perform. And she sure brought that attitude with her on this warm and golden August day for the benefit of the camera. I loved capturing this spunky senior. I've known Allaina since she was a little thing. An ornery tomboy with a short bob haircut that would go flying around the rink. What a joy it has been to watch her grow into the gorgeous young woman that she is today!
I'm looking forward to photographing Allaina again soon. A full session with outfit changes, a picturesque farm setting, and her 4-H steer. Can't wait!
