Alright…brace yourself because Caroline is STUNNING. She is a senior at Eastern Wayne High School and is on my 2021 senior spokesmodel team. Caroline is witty, fun, and has a huge heart. She’s a big nature girl and appreciates good style, so we wanted to capture both her love for the mountains and beach AND her fashion. I can’t believe I only have a few more months with her before she heads off to UNC!!
Caroline loves the southern charm of Charleston and Savannah so we wanted to have a mix of greenery with colorful houses and pops of color. Wilmington definitely has it’s own unique style but if you find just the right spot, you may think you’re in either one of those places! I’m thankful for seniors like Caroline who trust me 100% to find new spots, even when I’ve never shot at them before.
So here’s the thing –– I never expect anyone to show up to sessions and know exactly what to do. I’m known for being very directive which helps when you’re uncomfortable in front of the camera and need to know what to do with your hands (lol).
BUT when I get to work with someone who just GETS IT…it’s magic!!!! I told Caroline after our first two poses that I was probably just going to let her do her thing and if I was quiet it’s because I was just trying to keep up with her serving LOOKS. I’m seriously obsessed!!!
Hanging out with her and her mom was such a highlight of my week. I loved hearing about their love of food, the beach, and traveling. They are basically twins and so much fun to hang out!!! (I will definitely be joining for her dad’s famous bloody marys this summer and to play with the baby pup!)
Alright…let me know if you can pick a favorite. It’s going to be TOUGH.
