To say that Chelsea and I had fun wandering the colorful streets of Tacoma would be an understatement. She brought just the right amount of sass with her outgoing personality and mixed it in with that sweet dimpled smile and we created some of my favorite images to date! She's graduating high school this year amid an unprecidented pandemic year, but this incredibly intelligent and future-focused young lady had nothing but positive things to say about how this experience has shaped her.

We definitely made the most of being out in the beautiful weather and played around with her props and outfits, and wow this girl has style. I won't lie, I may have asked once or twice where she got that awesome jacket.

One thing I always recommend to my senior clients is don't be afraid to be a little extra during their session. Bring some fun props (sunglasses, hats, extra skirts, a musical instrument--whatever it is that helps bring out your personality). We'll crank some music and play around with them and have fun. What usually ends up happening is that my clients loosen up, relax, and movements become a lot more natural. The smiles are genuine, and these cute props are just added fun to an awesome session!
