What a difference a few years makes! I've known Taylor's mom for longer than I care to share! We worked together shortly after I moved to Houston and we hit it off immediately. We always kept in touch and she's one of those friends that regardless of how much times has passed between chats or visits, we always pick up right where we left off.
I had the pleasure of photographing Taylor when she graduated high school a few years ago, and now I'm so honored to have been able to photograph her again as she graduates college with her RN! I drove to Beaumont so we could do the session there on the Lamar University campus. Home base is Navasota, but as a South Texas Photographer, I serve a large region of the state and am happy to travel to various locations! I'm so glad we did because the image of her sitting on the Lamar sign is one of my faves! I love capturing my client's true spirit and watching their personality shine through my lens. Taylor certainly didn't disappoint! I added a couple of shots from her high school session and then a few of my faves from last week's session. It was so hard to pick only a few, she totally rocked the #FiercelyFeminine vibe at her shoot! Taylor has grown into a beautiful, strong, lovely woman - she takes after her mom... even if mom couldn't find the sun. LOL
At both of Taylor's sessions, mom, Anette, played the part of my 'assistant' and held my reflector for me. I would set up the shot, get Taylor in place, get ME in place, and then tell mom to "light her up"! To which mom would inevitably reply, "Wait, I can't find the sun"! "Um... big, yellow orb in the sky, Anette." LOL I knew what she meant, when you're not used to redirecting the sun's rays, it can be hard to get it to point right where you want it, but we've been friends long enough that I had to tease her about it a little. It was all in good fun and we had a great time.
I love that I got to be a part of Taylor celebrating her success at completing her RN. What an amazing accomplishment! I created custom designed Graduation Party invitations for them as part of the full service Ms. Studios provides. Next up we're going to be doing a 'Fashion/Glamour' shoot for Taylor, so watch the blog!
