Oh my goodness, WHERE do I BEGIN with the little gal!!! When I received a call from her Mom a couple months back, she told me that Mary was dreading Senior photos because they are all so canned and cheesy. Her Mom was considering flying her to LA to be photographed by someone who had done head-shots for Mary’s sister (who is out there living her acting dreams). When Mary saw the blog of her friend Holly that I did back in July, she knew she wanted to work with us! What an absolute honor!! Maybe a tinnnnny bit of pressure, but when I heard about what she was into, I was so excited.
Mary was a doll and a half to work with. We had so much fun on her shoot, and she had some amazing ideas/locations/outfits…OH MY GOODNESS!!! Editing these has been like a treat. She loves fashion and is inspired by anything vintage, so she was right up my alley. She is almost as big of an Audrey Hepburn fan as I am. Almost. She also loves photography! Not to mention she is super happy and sweet as could be.
We began her session in one of her favorite shoe stores Morrison & Me, and big thanks to the owners for allowing us freedom to shoot around their store. It was beautiful.
Getting glammed up…
How crazy adorable is this girl??!!
Before leaving she found a new pair of shoes. It was love at first sight. (In the end she opted for this pair in black and they were AMAZING on her!)
Did I mention I had a blast editing these photos? Vintage. Yes ma’am.
Audrey? Audrey is that you??!
Mary has the most adorable smile and laugh that is completely uncontainable. I would try to get her to give me a serious look, and this is what she would do.
Oh precious light, how I love you.
FAVORITE. Like, I am screaming in my chair right now FAVORITE.
Wowzas. She is smokin.
A couple Fred Egan inspired shots. I love how playful and natural she could be right after being so glamorous.
She had to have her chucks shots.
No prompting….this girl knew how and where to go.
I LOVED this dress she put on last. Her eyes and hair just looked great with it.
This was a new location, and I arrived 5 minutes early to scope it out. We had so many fun things to work with.
Ummm, you need to consider following your sister to LA. You are AMAZING!!
Mary, I had such fun with you!!! Thanks so so much for having me do your Senior photos. All the best to you and your AMAZING future, whatever you choose to do!
