Zip zip! That was Elly! I honestly have never had a client who wanted to be finished with photos as quickly as Elly wanted to be finished with photos ~ I used to say that every client has fun, even the guys ~ but now I may have an exception! Maybe she had fun... oh I dunno, maybe not! But ... SHE DID IT :) She did it for her Mum :) She did it for her yearbook :) She just wanted to get it behind her as fast as possible ! I have photographed Elly once before, and she was fine... maybe because it was an ENTIRE FAMILY shoot, and she could be part of the crowd instead of being the end-all-be-all-center-of-attention! Anyway, she had LOVED her hair at that shoot, done by the experts at Larissa Sofia Salon, in Klahanie :) So we went there again for her senior portraits ! And her hair was styled just the way she likes it, yippeee!!
Elly's first choice for location is Beaver Lake Park, in Sammamish :) Sunlight filtered through the canopy for us, it was a gorgeous place for portraits!
Patented Elly smile, love it :)
Next, the cutest little flower farm... gorgeous :)
And Snoqualmie has a fantastic steak house, Woodman Lodge ... it was closed for COVID, but the exterior is still fun, and had gorgeous flowers...
I so love the colors in this one ^ :D
Next, for sunset drama, Elly really wanted Mount Si !
The mountain turns rosy red if we have clear skies at sunset.
We took in the view from the visitor center at Meadowbrook Farm :
A successful senior portrait shoot for Miss Elly!!
She likes her portraits, she loves them, so the way I tortured her was WORTH IT!!
I am glad I know you, Elly! I'm glad I have known you since you were LITTLE!
I appreciate how the Lord made you just the way you are ~
your quick sense of humor,
your ability to build tight long-lasting friendships,
your humility & attention focused on others instead of yourself,
your love of the outdoors,
your strong relationships with your family :)
2 months until graduation!!!
