I've known Jessie since she was a baby, and so getting the opportunity to take senior photos of her was such an honor and pleasure.
Jessie is such a fun-loving, sweet, funny, respectful, musical, and intelligent young woman with a super bright future ahead of her. (Kudos to her parents who have done an amazing job raising her!)
Fun fact: Jessie taught herself to play the ukulele by watching YouTube videos.
Before each senior session, I email a questionnaire to the teen, asking them for input about their session -- everything from location to music preferences to must-have shots. Jessie said that it was really important to her to have a few photos with her dog, Oliver.
And Jessie also requested that I take photos of her wearing her Seattle University shirt.
Jessie's mom brought along a few photos of Jessie as a baby. Isn't this one adorable?!
Old Roseville is such a cool place to take senior photos, especially for those clients who prefer an urban setting. All of the images shown here were taken within a few blocks, and we just walked from place to place.
I was totally digging this blue wall!
I love that Jessie brought matching bow ties for her and Oliver!
Jessie and I both spotted the shadow of the palm tree on this wall at. the. exact. same. time. I thought it was important to photograph her next to this wall, not only because she was born and raised in California, but also because in just a few months, she'll leave the palm trees behind and head to Seattle to study engineering.
A big thanks to Lea Buehler for doing Jessie's makeup!
