Sophia!

I have hit the highest highs as a FAN of Sophia's...

As I rabidly cheered on The White Sharks! Lake Washington Premier FC!

Photo memory at the bottom of this post :) 

I LOVED spending a day together a few months ago, getting to know (a little bit of) WHO SOPHIA IS NOW!

Her favorite part of our shoot was the beach, which was our sunset finale :)

We started at U Village.

This was to make perhaps a professional headshot and to honor her leanings toward the world of Business.

You know how public speaking is (for most people) one of the most stressful events of life??

Not Sophia ;)

She rather enjoys it!

Sophia enjoyed debating and speaking and later mentoring in Model UN (Model United Nations).

while achieving her Associates in Arts through Running Start.

She has two commencement ceremonies this June!

Eastlake High School and Bellevue College.

She has enjoyed the studious vibe at the College,

Sophia comes across as a person who is classy, efficient, and likes to get things done :)

Her parents, Mike & Heidi, joined us. We had some stops where we couldn't really park for any length of time, and some outfits and equipment to carry, so our chauffeur and porter were part of the crew!!

Mike & Heidi were also with me for their son Daniel's senior portraits back in 2020 ~ we had memorable moments in the International District of Seattle, with so many windows boarded up and really fun graffiti ~ and a particular fun comment from a little old lady walking by with a twinkle in her eye :)

Our second location was the broad south-facing open field at Discovery Park in Seattle.

Josée Clermont assisted! I love spending time with Josée and she loves making photographs like I do ~ this was a particularly bright moment in the day, and Josée's job of reflecting that sunshine back into shadows in our portraits was pretty essential!

I feel like our weather ran the gamut from near-rain to bright sun ~ Seattle weather :)

One variable I love on portrait day is... wind!

And I think it helps show off Sophia's dreamy spontaneous artsy side :)

I also loved the texture of Sophia's beachy clothes with the sand, waves & wind ^

The lighthouse and driftwood logs are fun, and Sophia's white & off-white & beige beachy clothes were beautiful in the scene.

I learned within my first couple years of photography that I don't... really... mesh... with people who need their hair to be perfect in their portraits... 

So I'm glad Sophia is that way too :)

Sooooo appreciative for all that "Sofia" did for us at Gene Juarez, I know that after the curls were given a natural beach blowout the volume persisted and still kept Sophia's hair extra fun and full!!

... And the sun went down...

In 2024, Jo James & I offered complimentary cap & gown mini sessions 

for students who hired me for their senior shoots ~

for me, it was SUPER fun to see everyone again!

Sophia went with her Eastlake High School regalia :)

So I promised a young Sophia soccer pic :)

I so enjoyed practicing photography with Sophia's White Sharks :) My Zoe played with her!

Here is... young-Sophia defender of the goal :)

Happy Graduation soon, Sophia!!
