If there’s anything y’all know about me from this blog, it’s most likely that my favorite peeps to photograph are teens. I really do love each & every one of my sessions, but there’s an extra zig to my zag for teen sessions.
I met Hannah at my Heather Photography booth during Oktoberfest a few months ago. She recognized a few schoolmates’ images that I had on display, and she was super-friendly to stop by and say a happy hello! I remember her putting her name into the drawing for my Teen Session Giveaway and her remarking “I really want to win… but I never win these things” as she dropped her name into the vase. Well, there’s a funny little story here… After the event, I drew names but Hannah’s was not picked. I contacted the winner of the contest, and long story short – no reply back for days! I was wondering what to do when Hannah happened to IM me Facebook & told me she was bummed to not win the session with me. I immediately offered her the giveaway, and she was psyched & ready to roll! It was definitely a win-win.
Our session was super laid back & definitely a go-with-the-flow vibe. We picked a beautiful warmish weekday afternoon (high temps for autumn!), and met Hannah after school to start our session! As soon as I started chatting with Hannah, I immediately got that she’s a well rounded & down to earth kind of soul. She’s fun, athletic, loves to smile & laugh, a natural beauty, and has much love for her family and friends… an awesome mix of the good stuff.
Without further ado, the awesome Miss Hannah…
Now this is called NATURAL BEAUTY, for sure!
Can I say it again? You define it here: Hannah being herself = natural beauty!!!
We decided to check out the other side of banks, where the sun was setting directly over the water & mountains. I love these of Hannah backlit with the warm sun from behind…
One last photo… this was the yummy sunset during our session… what a beautiful day!
Hannah ~ Thanks for hanging with me that afternoon!! So much fun Thanks for being so patient while waiting for your images & cannot wait to see which you pick for your 16×24 canvas!!
