Speedwell Forge Lake Senior Session
From an intense thunderstorm to an extremely humid day, this Speedwell Forge Lake
senior session had a little rain delay!
A few weeks ago Alyssa reached out to me about wanting to schedule her senior session with me. We figured out a date, location, and number of outfits, and we were all set to go. Until Mother Nature decided to change things up on us. Unfortunately, we had to reschedule the session because a pretty strong thunderstorm rolled through our area the evening of the session.
For a moment, we almost thought about pushing through, but I’m so glad we didn’t.
There were strong winds, and deep puddles everywhere! It definitely would have been a session to remember…but not in the best way. So it was back to the drawing board for a new date. Luckily, we were able to squeeze another one in before her senior year started up! It may not have been filled with rain, but the humidity was definitely on high!
I was soaked by the end of the session.
Which if you have been following along for a while, may not be too surprising for me to say. It was still a hot one, none-the-less. But with Alyssa heading off to Florida for college, this is perfect prep for her! Heat or no heat, Alyssa was on fire during her session. What started out as a nervous hand over her face being in front of the camera, ended with a girl that I referred to as a model!
I don’t say that very often!
Typically, I have to walk seniors or couples through different poses the whole way through the session. Which to be honest, I love! But when someone just starts moving their head to different spots and changing it up from a smile to a soft look, without me saying a word means they have truly nailed the session. Alyssa just started changing things up, and by the end, I was just letting her be her! I loved the personality that came through as she started to get more and more comfortable!
It was truly her senior session!
I love getting the chance to meet new people through this job I love so much! Alyssa heard of me through one of my Senior Spokesmodels and reached out for a session! Instantly, I felt like we connected and loved hearing about her plans for the future! She is going to do great things. So, watch out world! Alyssa, I wish you all the best in your final year of high school and beyond! Continue to always let your personality shine through! (Even when you have an unexpected audience watching 😉 )! You are so fun and personable, and I hope you love these favorites from your Speedwell Forge Lake Senior session!
XOXO ~ Heather Marie
