Denna’s mom contacted me not long ago because she wanted to schedule a senior session for her daughter. She was put into my private group for women and “something” caused her to stick around and I’m so very glad that she did. We planned the session, they planned the wardrobe… and we PRAYED the weather would work out. Spring time in Texas… doesn’t always cooperate. However, the sun was beautifully shining and even though it was a little chilly… we rocked it out.
Denna had several ideas going into this session. One thing that her mom noted to me was that she just wanted to feel grown up. I get that, what senior girl doesn’t?? So, we brought in Lori to do hair and makeup. We traipsed around the Botanical Gardens and captured some beautiful images.
Sidenote: As we roll up to the Botanical Gardens, I hear VERY loud music as we get out of the car. I mean REALLY REALLY LOUD. I walk over to where our first location is going to be… and there is a wedding. I don’t mean, “oh isn’t that pretty a sweet little wedding”… I mean a full blown Indian wedding that took up the entire garden we planned to use. I begged and pleaded with the security person that I really just needed that one little corner… over there, behind everyone, not in the way… just.right.over.there. Nope! So, new plan! On to other areas.
OK – back to Denna. She had several things planned and one of them was this beautiful flower crown. It was beautiful and Denna made it herself. LOVE that.
Her mom joked that Denna has several tiaras… I looked at Denna and we both smiled, EVERY girl is a princess and should have tiaras.
While we may have frozen during her session – I’m so thankful to have been the person that Denna and her mom chose as her senior photographer. Every session that I shoot, my goal is to make sure each senior feels incredible when they leave and that they love their images. Denna, you are headed off to Dallas Baptist University in the fall. I can’t wait to see all the things that you accomplish. You are a beautiful girl
