We definitely saved the most extensive senior model session for someone special. We met Kristen through the yearbook program at Buford High School and she immediately made an impression. She is clearly gorgeous, but she is also crazy intelligent and poised beyond her years. As a dancer, she has a very graceful, lovely way about her that made her a real joy to photograph. We started at LMP, and then traveled down Atlanta's iconic Piedmont Park to capture the greenery and skyline - and even met some policemen on horseback that we kind enough to take a picture with us! We finished up the session at The Goat Farms Arts Center to take advantage of the unique feel of urban decay and history. Kristen simply shined.
As we progressed through our session, it really struck us how Kristen comes from a tight-knit, supportive family and how this provided such a firm foundation from which she can catapult herself to a bright future. Her mother sung her praises throughout the session, joked around with us, shared memories from Kristen's family. Our favorite detail from this session was the ring that Kristen wore - a custom piece made from her grandmother's wedding band.
