Maya: Class of 2014

I had a blast photographing Maya at a local park! Maya is a free spirit who loves to laugh. I may have slacked off senior year, but Maya didn’t. Her schedule was packed and it was actually difficult finding a day that worked for the both of us.  The day of the shoot started off gloomy and on the verge of raining. I was literally checking the whether every 30 minutes to make sure it doesn’t down pour during our session. Of course it started raining but luckily it cleared up. The sun came out and I couldn’t have been more trilled.

The park was a local place that was sentimental to Maya and we even ran into several of her class mates. When I arrived and waiting for Maya, I was reminiscing about my high school years. There were several games going on and it brought back fond memories of being at school and cheering my teams on. Although I haven’t been out of high school for that long, it still feels like it went by way too fast. One of the reasons I love shooting HS senior portraits so much is because I get to experience and soak in all of that youthful joy.

Maya and I had so much fun shooting together. The fall foliage was a great backdrop to capture Maya’s vibrant personality. I cracked lame jokes about school that made both of laugh. I sometimes sacrifice looking cool in order make people smile for the camera :)

I couldn’t have asked for a more fun photoshoot. Maya’s off to college next year to study environmental science and I wish her the best of luck in her endeavors. I know she will go far and lift many spirits with her contagious smile.

Here are a few shots from our session today, enjoy!
