Ana Schofeild’s senior shoot was such a fun adventure.
We started out getting used to each other as you can tell that the ideas of pictures were an unknown. Ana started warming up about the time I fell into the stream at Spokane’s Japanese gardens. Although I wouldn’t have loved falling in, she thought, and I believe appreciated my dedication to making her shoot great and different than any other shoots.
We started warming up to each other, we moved from spot to spot. Grabbing light out of the sky, finding nooks, and enjoying the smiles. Ana’s Aunt was my daughters daycare teacher and so my daughter was there, counting flowers pushing the stroller and at two years old yelling out at me “good job mommy!” This was endearing to me and everyone around, more smiles, maybe because they all heard jiberish and my smile was because she was able to cheer me on. She brings out my light, so Ana had me and I had
my daughter. Some people say bringing kids to shoots is a down fall in my case its an encouragement
. We kept finding more and more great shots, and lights. We moved from the Japanese gardens to the rose garden where we took advantage of all the beautiful colors, which complimented Ana perfectly.
Flowers, trees, fountains, a glimpse, a smile a piggy back ride no where else could you have this much fun. At this point not only was Ana having fun but she was modeling, striking poses and having what I could only assume was the time of her life. We kept going and going light was almost gone, and I didn’t want it to be over, neither did she. But the light was gone, and well a girl that barely wanted photos, gave me a hug and thanked me. What a great feeling it is when someone can get that opportunity to know that they are more beautiful then they could ever know. I know, you know why? My lens never lies. Just look, the lens didn’t lie.
