Dear friends, this is Sam.
I know, I know, gorgeous right?!
As soon as Josh and I (Kelley) met up with her for her senior session, I asked her if she was nervous to be in front of the camera. “A little”, was her response.
Well, apparently she was good at hiding the little bit of nerves she had, because she did amazing and looks completely confident in all of the shots!
After talking about locations for the shoot, Sam decided that she’d like to take her senior photos in downtown Phoenix. What a wonderful decision that was!
At first we were all a bit worried about the semi-heavy wind we were experiencing that day. You see, a blustery day can make for some awesome shots like this one:
However, with just one more click of the shutter, that shot can turn into this:
(Strangely enough, I (Kelley) actually really like this shot!)
Luckily, when you’re downtown, all of the tall buildings do a great job of blocking the wind, so we were able to forget all about the breezy day and get some awesome photos.
During the session, Josh and I talked with Sam and learned that she’s going to be a fellow Sun Devil soon! In other words, she’s about to start attending the best school ever! (We can’t help it, Josh and I LOVED our time at ASU).
However, it seems that Sam’s home is a house divided. You see, her father has a mantra that goes something like this, “Sparky is bad. Wilbur is good.” Yup, he’s a die hard U of A fan.
Lucky for Sam she’s not the first one in her family to dip her toes into the enemy waters of ASU. Her older sister is already attending ASU, so hopefully her dad has had time to warm up to the idea of having Sun Devils in the family.
Sparky and Wilbur aside, I’m sure your parents are beyond proud of you Sam. After talking to you during your session, Josh and I could both tell that you’ve got a good head on her shoulders, and you’re going to do great things in the future.
Congratulations on your graduation, and good luck with your future at ASU!
