Give me any session where I get to photograph beautiful horses AND a gorgeous senior, and I’m beyond happy! Alaina has the sweetest spirit, and is not only accomplished, but SO driven and smart. She is graduating from Hendrickson High School, where she is extremely involved in her schoolwork, as well as mentoring young girls in need (through a program called Girl Advocates). This sweet girl also is involved in hunter/jumper equestrian competitions. She’s been busy creating special, lifelong memories at Hendrickson, and she really treasures her friends. In fact, she says the most important things in her life right now would be her family, her friends, and her horses. Another passion she has is for the environment, and the great outdoors, and she shared, “I am very much an outdoorsy person, so I love anything that involves being outside. I would love to see everyone in the world take better care of the environment”.
One of her biggest role models is Bill Gates, because of his positive contributions to society, and because determination is something she really admires. Alaina is passionate about the healthcare world, and ensuring everyone has access to the care they need, adding “I also plan to attend the University of Texas at Dallas, to earn a degree in Neuroscience. I am very excited to experience the change of college.” For her session, we had gorgeous light in the barn where we took some of these images, and then we moved outside, to highlight her bohemian style and gorgeous makeup! We laughed and learned a lot about each other, and I am so pleased with how her session turned out…she is such a stunning young lady, and I know she will make a big mark on this world.
