Who are you, and who do you want to be? It’s the question that so many seniors are figuring out as they prepare for graduation and leaving the proverbial ‘nest’. I have found that as they learn the answer to the question, they discover it comes down to their values and the things they hold dear. Usually, that’s their family and friends and the things they have learned that bring them joy. For this beautiful young lady, all of those things are true. She is an absolute gem of a human, and has the most beautiful eyes and smile. Sydney is graduating from East View High School, and is excited about the prospect of attending college soon.
Sydney is a talented basketball player, and her mom requested a photo or two to commemorate that hard work. I love the way her uniform looks in these photos, and hope it always reminds her of the work ethic and determination that she put into the sport. We trekked to a few different locations, in order to capture edgy and editorial style images, and we chased plenty of sunlight to highlight her beauty! I love that yellow dress, because it reminds me of her sunny spirit. The commemorative photos of her grandfather were also particularly special, and made me a little teary. We can always accommodate special props or requests like this one, in order to honor the people who can’t be with us in person, so please let me know if you’d like something similar for your senior’s session.
Congratulations, Sydney! Best wishes on all the amazing things to come!
