Now I haven't pursued senior photography much in my 8 years of portrait photography, and earlier this year I actually decided to remove it completely from my list of services I offer. But life always has a way of changing things up, so this summer when my husband and I decided to move to Cle Elum (rather than Bellingham) I decided to throw it back on the list - and boy am I glad I did!
This amazing young lady does not attend high school in Cle Elum though. She's my little cousin and lives in Arlington where she's the Captain of her Cheer Squad at AHS. She's on the side of my husband's family that we don't see often enough and I am SO happy that her initial photographer didn't work out! (not in a malicious way - but in a way that everything happens for a reason and we weren't meant to kick it for the day at Deception Pass and get to know one another aside from the two times we've met before!) She was my first senior session to get back into the swing of things and she certainly set the bar high from there on out! She showed up with an amazing attitude, adorable outfits, and all the sass that an almost 18 year old badass embodies!
We began the day in Oak Harbor, and Abi was quick to get to posing in an adorable hat from a local boutique! We ventured around the cute and quiet town - visiting indoor strip malls, local community gardens and even snapping a quick shot with a mermaid statue - before we set out to Deception Pass State Park for the rest of her session. My year of scouting the location came in handy and the light was our best friend all day long! My inner girl was just the happiest spending time with Abi in this beautiful location.
The session ended with the sun setting and Abi in a gorgeous dress. I cannot say enough positive things about this girl. Her soul is old, sweet, and wise! It shines through her like beacons of light - through her eyes, her smile, her laugh - it's contagious to be around! I wish I had more time to just hang out with her and explore and take photos all the live long day!!!
Thank you Abi & Jenni for spending the day with me and allowing me to get to know you both better - I am so blessed to be a part of the Glasco family!
