Susanna // Hillsborough, NC

 

Adventure is worthwhile in itself. ~Amelia Earhart

Susanna. I’ve known this girl since she was very young. I’ve watched her grow up in the public eye. (The youngest member of a well-known pastoral family, people are always paying attention.) Whatever pressures that may have presented, she’s all grown up now into an incredibly strong, wondering, adventurous, gorgeous woman.

She is HILARIOUS and makes me feel like I’m basically a comedian, because she laughs at all my jokes. Her sense of style is amazing; I was never this cool at her age. In fact, I’m still not this cool. She’s an incredibly talented actress, writer; her sense of comedic timing is exquisite. I love her untamed spirit,and her sense of adventure. She’s a dear love of mine and I was honored to have had the chance to capture her senior session.

When I asked her about her ideas, she said, “can we do something with an adventure look?” Yes please. I dragged this girl up a mountain, had her climbing all over rocks, back down the mountain (which in all honesty, was a pretty small “mountain”.) She was totally up for shooting part of her session in a parking deck, shopping carts included. So much fun! She was down for everything I suggested. She was such a good sport and a GORGEOUS subject. She’s an amazing person. Truly one of the dearest I know.Susana30Susanna31Susanna21Susanna22Susanna24Susanna27Susanna26Susanna25Susanna23Susanna28Susanna29The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.
