I talk all the time about how much I love my seniors – these sessions pretty much consist of getting all glammed up (for free! courtesy of Krista Delvalle of Avenue 42), and hanging out shooting some super fun fashion forward photos. I love the sense of style seniors bring too the table, but most of all the way we manage to transform it into something that really showcases their personalities. It’s amazing when you can have two completely different seniors on the same day and the photos come out completely different because they are different people! For Sequoia, it was about capturing the essence of a casual, fun-loving spirit, but this girl also knows how to work her model face when asked!
Sequoia came in on a day for her session when we were having the Maleficent shoot, so she got to see our actual Maleficent model Melanie come in (post coming this week) and probably got so nervous about our makeup plans for her!! Luckily, she and Krista are actually from the same hometown and knew each other, so any uncomfortable hellos were no issue for us.
Some of the things I adore about Sequoia are her sense of confidence and easy-going nature. She was so wonderful to get to know during this shoot and to hang out with. And check out those gorgeous natural curls! Her soft smokey eye look crafted by Krista really emphasized her gorgeous natural beauty and with those curls – oh my gosh, swoon. She’s such a wonderful person – congrats on your college plans Sequoia!
