Meet the beautiful Natalie. She is a senior at NMHS and is gearing up to graduate June 2015. She’s smart, knows what she wants and works towards her goals.
I allow a senior to bring along a friend to the shoot and take a few pictures together. Natalie is close with her family and instead of a friend, she requested her brother and sister join us. I know her mom LOVES these images of her three beautiful children and I’m sure Natalie will cherish them as she heads off to collage next fall and will be able to take a little piece of her family with her.
We started our session at the beautiful Red Lily Vineyards in the Applegate Valley. The leaves where just starting to change.
I like to ask seniors some of their favorite things, from music to movies, etc. This girl loves The Little Mermaid, which is one of my all time favorite movies as well, and her favorite musician is Drake. That one had me scratching my head as I’d never even heard of him and had to google him. From Disney Princesses to rap music. I think that speaks to Natalie’s personality – a little bit soft and girly, but definitely a go-getter with an opinion all her own.
The vineyard is along the Applegate River and Natalie even braved a few shots in the cold water.
We then headed back to town and stopped in historic Jacksonville, OR.
Natalie, I hope your senior year is amazing and that you’ll back on these images and remember all the special moments of this year. Good luck and congratulations!
