Articulate, clever, and full of charm... a real firecracker, I dare say. One of the most fulfilling aspects of being a photographer in a small town is witnessing the growth of my clients from childhood to young adulthood. It's a bittersweet experience to see them transform into remarkable young men and women. Avery is no exception; she exuded confidence throughout her session and landed every pose, and even when it didn't quite land, it still looked like it landed. Mattei's Tavern in Los Olivos is a gem of a backdrop for photos. It was my first time photographing there, and I hope to do it again. I was delighted when she asked me to capture her senior portraits, allowing me to play a small role in this milestone in her life. Congratulations Avery!
