I'm thrilled to have Sophie, a 2017 senior from CAC as a Senior Rep this year! She's a beautiful girl with a sweet spirit and personality.
Sophie's session was planned for outdoors near sunset. Out of the blue came a huge downpour and thunderstorm. We quickly had to change plans, so we decided to meet at Mylo Coffee Shop in the Heights. It turned out to be a perfect spot for a casual session. I typically prefer to shoot outdoors with natural light, but Sophie had gorgeous hair and makeup and we didn't want to reschedule the shoot.
I love the simple black dress Sophie chose for the session. She also made the smart choice of having professional hair and makeup done, which helps complete the look (and made her feel a little pampered for the day).
The rain let up, and we were able to step outside for few beautiful shots. I bet if I had asked Sophie if she wanted part of her senior session to be in a coffee shop during a rainstorm, she would have said "no!" But I'm happy with how the first part of her impromptu session turned out!
It's good to plan the details of your senior portrait session, but it's always important to be ready to embrace the unexpected.
