Senior Portrait // Abigail

Oh, little Abigail. Back in 2013 I asked Abigail to be my practice model so I could perfect my Senior Portrait Photography. We had a blast back then and we had a blast this summer!

 I don’t know Abigail personally but what I do know about her I truly appreciate. She’s stunning but very humble, young but not reckless, she has a gentle little spirit and is very very clumsy … which just might be my favorite thing about her! At some point during our session she managed to trip down the last step of some stairs. She was so use to falling down that it didn’t even phase her or embarrass her. She just dusted off her booty and continued on like nothing happened. Her own mother wasn’t even shocked, it was adorable! I couldn’t help but see me and Iris in the future, we always joke that Iris got my clumsiness. Poor kid. Oh, well. It builds character.

 I love when I get to photograph someone as soft spoken as Abigail. I get to take a beautiful and gentle personality and share it with the world. We both wanted to capture ‘movement’ in her photos and she trusted me as I made her dance and move around infant of the camera. She was a trooper!

After our session ended and we took our final photo we all gave each other big hugs. As we both made for our separate ways I saw Abigail lay eyes on a beautiful vintage that drove right past us and into a near by parking space! Both Abigail and her mom’s face lit up! With that I chased after it to beg the owner to let us take photos. I’m assuming this happens often because before I could even ask he stepped out of his car and said “Yep, go ahead. You can take as many photos as you want.” With that he walked down the hill and let us play dress up in his stunning car. This was just a cherry on top of the cake and made for yet another fun memory as a photographer.
