I love these next photographs so much!
This parking garage is one of my very favorite spots to shoot in for urban photographs in Fayetteville – it feels so grungy but textured and classy at the same time – and Alissa’s senior photographs are some of my favorite photographs that I’ve ever taken at this location. Her velvet dress + that necklace + all the cement = heart eyes for days on months on years.
Don’t you love how different Alissa’s outfits all are? This girl has serious style! And also? She has a really, really funny story to tell you about how her photographer took her to the worst-thought-out location ever for her Senior Photographs but I’m not going to write it down here – you’ll have to ask her (or me!) instead! I will say this, though! At Alissa’s Senior Session, we got kicked out of a location which means I’m turning into a thirty year old rebel. I’ve been kicked out of locations twice in my entire shooting career (and life!) and they both happened in the same week.
Meaning: We got the boot at Alissa’s session in a rebellious location (ha!) and I also got kicked out of Pike Place Market in Seattle during Click Away. I mean, you win some and you lose some, right?
And last but not least! We ended Alissa’s session in her mom’s homecoming dress! I love this dress in and of itself but I so love that Alissa’s amazing mom – Wendy! – wore this to her high school homecoming dance. I’m all about sentimental everything (so much so that I wear a ring my dad gave my mom for their tenth anniversary for my own wedding band) and, because I’m a total mom, these photographs just touch my heart. Thanks so much for such a fun session, y’all!
