As much as I love to meet new clients, I truly love when I have friends that ask me to do their photographs. Knowing about a client's personality prior to a shoot always gets me excited! I am so happy when the end results are portraits that I feel truly reflect the personality of the subject. This is Olivia. She'll be 13 very soon and her mom wanted to have some photos done of Olivia at the cusp of this next new stage in Olivia's life. Olivia is such a sweet girl. She has a loving spirit, a laugh that comes easy and she's just REAL - all of which make her fun to be around! I honestly think I laugh every time I'm with Olivia (and her parents are pretty funny, too). I truly enjoyed getting Olivia in front of the camera to let her sweet smile be seen. I'm happy to call Olivia a pal. I hope my girls are something like her at 13.
