This is my sweet cousin, Makenna. And yes, I am totally loving doing all these shoots of people close to me. She is from Southern California and visits us in NC every summer. She is going to be a senior this fall and I thought this would be a perfect time to do her senior portraits! We met up with Carla to get all dolled up and started shooting right as the sun was going down. Perfect!
Doesn't she look fantastic?! The makeup perfectly complemented her outfits and her hair looked gorgeous!
I love all the little shops downtown! They make great backdrops :)
This is my favorite image. It was taken in the window of the Elsewhere Museum on Elm Street. The museum used to be an overcrowded thrift shop and is now open as a "working museum". You can look, touch, and play with everything! Believe me, it's a one-of-a-kind place and you need to check it out :)
I mean, seriously. How cool is this place?
Check out the back of Makenna's hair! Carla did an amazing job, as always.
I love that Makenna can totally work this outfit. Gorgeous!
In LOVE with this wall. It has so much character!
After a quick change, we stopped at a field for a more country look.
Makenna, you are so beautiful!
This always makes me want to go take a nap in the grass. Until I actually go outside and it's a hundred degrees and humid. Thankfully, it wasn't too hot during our session and Makenna was such a trooper!
LOVE seeing this smile :)
Makenna, you are so stinkin' beautiful. I totally loved hanging out with you in NC and I'm hoping to come visit you all on the West coast soon! xoxo
