Oh such joy for me to photograph Alexis :)
Her sparkling dark eyes &
her spontaneous mind searching out fun spots & angles with me :)
We were fitting in our photography session between dramatic bouts of rain &
Lexi's busy high school BASKETBALL season!!
& thank you to Kris, Lexi's mum, for corralling Cooper in the back yard & standing over my shoulder to get Coop to smile :)
We used locations between home & city hall & we found fun surprises along the way
like these gorgeous fall leaves :)
and the neighborhood basketball court worked well for us!
The sun is especially welcome when it pops out during a rainy week!
Lexi is the daughter of my high school friend / college roommate, Kris.
Kris has always been so faithful to me! She has always seen the good in me & loved me & encouraged me to be strong & to be confident & to be kind, even when I was going through years where I was quite selfish and nearly-narcissistic & not the best me. She saw ugly sides and still loved me. We have seen each other through :) We both really came to know God / solidified our trust in God around the same time :) Kris is more than just a longtime friend, she's my solid & prayerful friend, and she is so much fun :)
I see so many of the best of Kris' qualities shining in this beautiful soul, her daughter, Alexis!
What a thrill for me to make senior portraits with Lexi!
Class of '22!!!
