Anyone who survived the teenage years can testify that it’s a roller coaster, even for those who seem to enjoy terrible drops and twists. That’s why I love senior portraits. It’s a stop in time to capture the beauty of teen girls, who often wrestle with their purpose and whether they meet a certain (unrealistic) standard. For a few fleeting hours, a senior portrait session gives them permission step away from the pressures of their lives and feel like a supermodel.
I loved Ellen’s serious expressions as much as her sweet smile (did you notice those amazing dimples??). These are a few photos from our time together at Wade Oval.
