I was so excited when Allison contacted me in response to last month's tween campaign. It had been years since they had any professional photos taken of their only daughter, Cari, and recognized the season of change and transition was worth capturing! We all met for coffee to get to know one another and it was such a great chance for me to break the ice with Cari, especially. While shy at first, I learned that Cari is a goofball at heart (yay!) and is a girl of many budding talents!
She loves reading and writing in her journal, but is also experimenting with sports like volleyball, track and field. She's in chorus at school and loves hanging out with her family, cooking, and is a huge UVA fan! A future Wahoo perhaps!? She said she'd much rather spend a day strolling along shops in a city than hiking in the woods, so we opted for an urban shoot that could showcase her bright personality. I also learned that her favorite color is teal (another yay!) so we obviously had to incorporate my favorite teal door downtown!
This girl totally opened up as our shoot progressed and we ended up having so much fun playing and posing along the mall on a sunny, Sunday afternoon. She's all geared up for middle school and is going to rock her next big adventure :-)
