Allow me to introduce you to 2013 Senior Ashleigh Whitsett; so far the only one of my models I’ve had to rescue out of a tree. Also, the only one of my models to get me grumbled at by some old dude in his back yard. Hey, when your model wants to be shot amongst sunflowers, you have to shoot her where the sunflowers are, even if they are behind someone’s house (we weren’t in anyone’s yard btw). Sorry you fell victim to the ridiculous artistic whims of a photographer. We can be dangerous when we get ideas like that.
I really like this shot because, most people don’t know this, but it can be difficult to get teenage girls to stop giggling sometimes. When they do though, there’s a different kind of beauty to be captured; the kind steeped in self-confidence that shows someone is ready to take on the world.
Hope you had a fantastic senior year, and we wish you the best of luck wherever your future takes you (except for trees of course)!
