“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
― Mae West
After all of our chats, emails, and photo session I would say this quote effectively sums up Bailey. Her mom, Dena joined us for her session. Dena is so proud of her daughter and I can see why. Bailey is on the honor roll, a cheerleader, and on the diving team. Not to mention incredibly sweet, full of personality, and absolutely beautiful. I adored her. So easy to talk to and game for anything during our session. I am in awe of her diving skills. I was never one to muster up the courage to dive off of the high dive. Jump yes, dive no. Suffice to say bravery is another one of awesome personality traits.
Because cheer is such an important part of Bailey’s life we definitely had to incorporate that in some of her portraits. Dena wanted a photo of Bailey with the valley in the background, a representation of where they both grew up. This story telling process is why I encourage clients to get involved in the portrait process. Photographs last a lifetime and should be a reflection of your life, your story. Photos are important because our lives change and evolve, and they are a snippet of your life, your history.
Bailey, I am so excited for what the future has in store for you. Congratulations on senior year and your pending graduation. I have no doubt that your life will be so full of accomplishments and adventures that you will indeed, as Mae West said, “do it right.”
