Senior Session, Part One

This was such a great photo shoot, with a four-fold purpose:

-Senior pics for Katie
-Sister pics for Katie and Sarah
-Senior pics for Samantha
-Friend pics for Katie & Samantha

-Got that? :)

These girls were so organized, willing, happy and completely, ridiculously photogenic! I remembered again why I really enjoy senior sessions. Both Katie and Samantha were so courteous and respectful, helpful and kind. And Sarah was patient enough to help out with the reflector probably more often than she expected... :) Plus, they all trusted me when I pulled into the ugliest parking lot in Rockville and said that the pictures would be awesome there. :) They were!

Girls, I had a lovely time with you, and though this was supposed to be a post of '2 or 3 pictures' I couldn't resist putting up a couple more to tide you over until your full post in a few days...

Enjoy! You all did beautifully!

Samantha- and her beautiful eyes:

This is Katie- 'love the light in this one:

Sisters- Katie and Sarah:

No, she doesn't model for J. Crew-

All of the girls had beautiful eyes. They photographed so vividly:

Umm, I love this one. Because I love lens flare... (and because Samantha knew what she was doing!)

A little black and white for the girls:

Whoa. Speaking of beautiful eyes...

This was a wonderfully refreshing spot. It was rather warm out, and it was not difficult to stand in the middle of a cool stream to get this friends' shot:

And just one more at my grubby spot-- with random Queen Anne's lace growing in the parking lot...) (Thanks for believing me, Pam and Sandy, too! :)

Best wishes as you begin your senior year, Katie & Samantha! Thanks for trusting me with the memories for such an important time in your lives!

"That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me. But, it is the same with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day."

-Charles Dickens
