After speaking to Brianne and her mom, Sonya, on the phone last week I knew this was going be an awesome senior session. Not only was Sonya a good sport about traveling with her daughter after having surgery the day before, but both ladies stopped by the studio on the way in to meet me. I enjoyed visiting with them and it really helped lend me insight into Brianne’s true character….a fun and sassy young lady! Despite Hurricane Claudette’s coming ashore she was dead set on sunset portraits so we hit my favorite spot on the beach near Pier Park. We climbed, jumped, ran and drew in the sand; Brianne was up for it all. We had a surprise visit from two dolphins, mid-shoot, which added some excitement to our evening.
Sonya was so sweet and I enjoyed having her there as acting wardrobe/assistant/cheerleader. I look forward to speaking to Sonya and Brianne again in the spring about graduation announcements.
