Marisa is a very sweet High School student from Vancouver WA. We spent an amazing afternoon with her this Fall taking her senior pictures! Starting in our back yard because we have access to a beautiful forest and that was one of her bucket list items for her photo backdrops. Afterwards we headed to one of Woodland's beautiful lakes and it ended up being just perfect for a moody session. If anyone here thinks that it has to be sunny in order to get good pictures outside - oh how wrong you are! It actually sprinkled on us during this session and even though we were ready with our umbrellas we didn't end up using them. Cloudy skies and fog over a body of water make the most breathtaking and unique pictures.
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr. Seuss. I'm just borrowing Marisa's favorite quote here because it is so true! Marisa shared a couple of her favorite memories with me which by the way speak to how much she values her family and her parents specifically; but we don't always realize how much a moment can impact us until after its over.
I love the way Marisa describes her ideal day. It starts out with coffee and watching the sunrise, includes shopping at vintage stores, drawing, playing guitar, enjoying meals with her family, laughing with people she loves, and ends with a cup of tea. How perfect is that!
Enjoy our favorites from Marisa's senior session!
