Stay Golden: Alexa's Senior Session

If we've adventured together before, you'll know my two favorite times of day to shoot are sunrise + sunset. The light is just so yummy and each time of day has it's own unique vibe to it.  What you may not know is that sunrise is hands down my favorite time of the day to shoot.

Sunset is beautiful in all it's glory, especially when the sun has set just perfectly that it creates that ultra glow — or the golden hour, as we like to call it — but what I love about the sunrise, is that we start in that honey-hued light. It meets us with a huge smile, open arms and total sweetness. This is where Alexa's shoot started and that energy was carried throughout her entire session.

What I loved about Alexa was her openness to meet me at sunrise. Our photo shoot was scheduled for 6 am and Alexa relayed to me that she woke up at 4 am to get ready. Not a hair was out of place and her smile stretched from ear to ear. Here was a senior in high school who had already found the beauty in meeting the day early and that some moments in life are worth the lack of sleep and early alarm clock. I was not only blown away by her old soul but by her ability to model! Girl's got moves!! And of course, I was giddy with excitement when she let me pick a flower and braid it into her hair. That openness to spontaneity + creativity is something I so love about my clients. 

Cheers to the golden girl that met me at sunrise to dance under the sun together. Your glow has only just begun, my dear.
