I can not say enough good things about Addison, but I’m going to try! The first thing I noticed about her when we met was how tall she is! Knowing she plays volleyball, I knew she had to be one of the best players out there. She was instantly so personable, sweet, and charming. Her mom tagged along to her session, which I LOVED because I wish every parent could have the time and flexibility to come with their kids to their sessions.
We introduced each other and met Lanae and went right to work. I actually remembered to get a before and after picture and I brought my camera inside so I could snap some pictures too! I’m getting better at remembering some things.. but I did leave Addison’s frozen lemonade I got her from Sonic in the car for 2 hours… so we still have some work to do!
Addison explained to Lanae that she doesn’t usually wear a ton of makeup, and I loved watching Lanae do something more casual and lowkey on her. Even with very simple makeup, Addison’s beautiful blue eyes were the center of attention and Lanae’s work really made them pop!
We traveled a few blocks over and went to work. I really wanted to do some work in front of all the cute shops on Douglas, but the sun was fighting us. It was too bright and caused some shadows, but no one’s spirits dropped! I knew there was lots of flowers and cute things on the other side of the buildings, so we did most of the session there. It was just beyond gorgeous. I loved getting to do something a little more urban, since outdoorsy locations are a lot of people’s favorites. Addison even helped me with an idea I had on some old stairs behind a building.. and it was one of my favorite shots of the day! Actually it was my favorite, and I used it on my sample canvas I ordered for my clients to see!! (Currently, it’s just chilling in my room and I creepily stare at it because it just came in yesterday!)
Addison is the kindest young woman ever. I was so happy to get to know her and her mama, and I can not wait to see where this year takes her! Keep watching my pages to see more from her, she’s my 4th and last senior rep, so there will be much more to come from this beauty!
