Oh, my last senior session of the year. Bittersweet. This was one of the best seasons I have had, not only because I had the most seniors to photograph but maybe because I got to stretch my creative brain and step out of my comfort zone a little. I'm used to the Mission. That's my go-to place for photography. That's my jam. Ok, that's cheesy, I know. But I'm comfortable there. I know it well but most seniors when I ask where they want their photos taken say, "Not the mission." It is used a lot but I still love it. So when Lulu told me she wanted to have her photos done at the Prison Housing I was a little confused. I wondered, "What the heck is there?" But when I showed up and she explained how much she was connected to this location and loved the trees, I listened. It ended up being so perfect for her session. I honestly didn't even realize the real beauty back there and could completely understand what she meant when she said she loved the trees. I did too! Lulu was a gorgeous senior model and I so enjoyed talking with her and her mom throughout the entire session. Congrats Lulu!
