This might be one of my favorite senior shoots of all time. Mara is like my high school senior soulmate. She gets me :) This girl is gorgeous, intense, amazingly intelligent, confident, and mature. Her initial email to me was so well-worded I really hoped it wasn't spam. She had a million great ideas, and I was excited about each one! Within five minutes of meeting, we cut out the small talk and found ourselves talking about real life. I can't even say that we became friends quickly, because it was really more like we had been friends all along but just hadn't known it yet. I love this girl! Anyway. Enough with the ranting and on with the pictures.
She brought me an old cigar box full of vintage family photos. Love.
I love this one!
Paint brush bouquet!
Mara told me she loves nighttime. We hung out for a little bit, ate some strawberries, set up our lights, and waited for it to get dark.
Yay for this shoot! Thanks, Mara :)
