Paige’s Senior Session: Peak Fall in the Park

2016-11-26_0001

If you are over 40  like me, you may remember the the “Brek Girl” shampoo ads back in the day in your “Seventeen” Magazines. They were usually beautiful blondes with the sun backlighting their long hair and a wide smile. This is what I kept thinking as I shot this stunning senior, although the antiquated reference was lost on her.

I also know that Paige is much more than a pretty face, since I’ve practically watched her grow up – a fierce competitor on the soccer field and basketball court. I enjoy seeing these girls out of ponytails and their varsity uniforms, and she is just as comfortable in the wedge sandals as in cleats.

Another small world story: her mom, Debra and worked together “BF” (before kids) and although our paths have wandered back and forth throughout the years, it was so fun to have her along on the shoot: to hold a reflector when needed and catch up on the old days.  You can see where this senior gets her looks!

We rescheduled this session back from a September date and managed to land on a warm November morning, and although a little past peak foliage – this park had so many great locations and backdrops that we got some stunning fall color for her session!
