Meet Alissa, a 2021 senior at Spring Creek High School who loves her pup Ellie, her family, and shopping with her friends. She stays busy between softball and volleyball but she also loves the coast, so of course we had to go to some of my favorite locations around Wrightsville Beach.
On the day of Alissa’s session, we had a mix of weather situations with a little bit of rain right before her shoot. Things were a little wet to start out but honestly it worked out perfectly because it cooled everything down, the clouds were around just when we needed them, and went away towards the end so we could get some glow on the beach. It was truly the best of both worlds!
She brought along her mom and older sister so they could make her photos a girls day and I loved hanging out with them! It was also the best excuse to get some updated family photos (right in time for Mother’s Day). Alissa also couldn’t leave out Ellie, her adorable goldendoodle who was so well-behaved for her first time in front of the camera!
Alissa had so many cute, bright outfits that I had a hard time choosing my favorite, but I think the winner will have to be her white jeans with the blue top on the beach. Those paired with the water and the sunset was perfection!! Though Alissa is absolutely stunning so it’s hard to even narrow down a favorite.
Alissa, congratulations again girl!! I’m so excited for you and can’t wait to see your adventures at Campbell next year!
