Emma's Senior Session: Books, Coffee, Cactus

January 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

When Emma and her mom talked about her senior portrait session, she said she wanted books, coffee, and some cactus.

These things are totally in my wheelhouse.

Earlier this year, I met Emma's mom through our homeschool co-op and we hit it off immediately. So I was thrilled to get to spend the afternoon with her and Emma to document her senior year.  We started off with a super fun stop at hair and makeup with Charlene Melissa at Palette Collective. Emma and Charlene collaborated to decide on a neutral look with a bit of pop. I love when a plan comes together! Then we headed to Sidewalk Coffee and Bagel Co. in Queen Creek to keep it local and enjoy some beautiful natural light and a latte from their coffee artist after closing. Many thanks to their owner for permitting us time in the space! After a wardrobe change, we used the local area and WAIT, DOES THAT DRESS HAVE POCKETS! Pockets make everything fun. We wrapped up our time out in the desert. Remote, but not too remote! We did see some exciting "extras" and managed to embrace some pretty light (but no cactus--no hugs allowed) before calling it a day. I loved getting to work with this thoughtful, mature, beautiful young lady.  She's got the future ahead of her, and the possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing the day with me!
