Lizzie is a beautiful girl from Arizona, shy, but totally fun! She and her mom flew into Orange County to have me take her senior portraits and I was excited to meet her! We had a special photo planned. In it she would sit on a rocky area as the sun sunk below the horizon line.

When I got to the beach, the tide was higher than I wanted it to be and I knew it was coming in, not going out, but I also knew I could still take the photo at sunset, the rocks were still well above the water. First I wanted to take some fun shots of her walking along the beach and so forth while we waited for the sun to get low. All went well and Lizzie was proving to be a lot of fun to photograph, she’s got a really cute personality.

Nearing the end of our wait, I asked her to sit on the rock I was planning to photograph her on later. Her hair was perfect and she was smiling beautifully, when out of nowhere a huge wave hit the rock and splashed water all over Lizzie! Talk about shocked!!! It literally took my breath away! Her hair was soaking wet and her outfit was pretty damp, too! Naturally, we laughed our heads off! I waited a bit and it happened again! Which meant I had to quickly find another spot for our photo finale. So we scrambled over the rocks (picture me scampering over the rocks camera in hand with a much younger wet Lizzie right behind me) and found a dryer spot just in the nick of time. Whew! A photo session to remember!

When Lexi’s mom called to book a session for her daughter’s senior portrait, she told me she had talked to my neighbor and friend Stacy about me because she had seen Stacy’s daughter’s photos on my website. Stacy lives across the street and I’ve taken many photos for her over the years. So I called Stacy and told her that her friend had booked a session. Her first words were, “Wait ’til you see her daughter, she is GORGEOUS!” and, as you can see, she was right.

Gorgeous, smart, and sweet as can be. What a privilege and pleasure to photograph her! Lexi is heading to the University of Alabama to study fashion merchandising and I know she’ll be a huge success! She could easily do modeling, too!

I love a girl with a sense of her own style and her own place in the world and Tessa is that girl. Getting to know her was one of the highlights of 2014 so far. As you can clearly see in her photos, she’s animated, she’s fun, and she has loads of self confidence. She’s beautiful. She has taken the starring role in her own life. I wish everyone could be so fortunate.

The temptation is to say she’s going places, but I’m compelled to say she has already arrived.
