Abby wanted her senior photos in the redwoods, and paired with her red hair, it was the perfect setting! I drove out there a week ahead of time and realized quickly that while I normally do sessions about 1-2 hours before sunset, the tall trees tend to eat up the sun; we met 2 hours earlier and it really was just perfect!
I met Abby’s Mom back when we were in high school; she was my peer counselor! We re-connected when I started working at Healdsburg Hospital in the lab with her, and we have been good friends ever since! This also means I have known Abby since she was (I believe?) 8 years old. Man, saying “time flies” is so cliche, but its SO TRUE! I loved all the giggling, and how Merwyn was constantly on the lookout for animal poop!
Abby rocks the serious look and also has such a cute little grin! Also, back when we did the senior rep shoot, she had long hair; then over the summer she chopped it…and I LOVE how it looks on her! She is a huge drama buff, as well as a singer. It’s been amazing watching her talent grow! I also had fun with her earlier this year when she decided she wanted to do her junior externship with me, learning about photography.
Thank you for trusting me to photograph your senior session!
