Simple. Natural. Classic.
Those were the words Alli used to describe what she wanted for her portrait session, along with a more modern look overall. Thankfully, Arizona State University's beautiful campus is a mix of old buildings and new architecture, with plenty of worn concrete and lush greenery. It was the perfect location for what we were trying to achieve for this lovely college senior.
Alli and I have known each other for quite some time, and I have adored her since the day we met - but sadly, I don't get to see her too often. Her older sister, Jessica however, is one of my closest friends and also one of my favorite stylists. So of course, I was over-the-moon-excited when Alli asked me to shoot her senior portraits! And then naturally, Jess came along with us to style Alli from head-to-toe. We had SO much fun! Jess was also our resident Instagrammer, documenting everything going on behind the scenes, while taking all the best selfies. ;)
I loved spending the afternoon with these two beautiful sisters, watching them interact, crack jokes and seeing how much they love and care for each other. They have quite the bond. One day, I hope to do an entire portrait session with BOTH of these beauties! They look so much alike, don't they?!
These portraits of Alli have become some of my most favorite images. She not only brought her classic beauty, but she has the most natural elegance that shined through her the entire session. It didn't matter if people were watching…which, on a college campus, can be a lot at times. Like when a lecture hall lets out. Haha, right Alli?! But no matter what, you always stayed calm and confident. I was SO impressed! You are a gorgeous human. Inside and out.
Congratulations again! I wish you all the best where ever this next season of your life takes you!
Big hugs & lots of love! :)
