We’ve literally watched Shelby grow up, so it was so bizarre to take her senior portraits! A few years ago we had the opportunity to take her sweet 16 portraits (See them here!) and we had so much fun, but I have to say this session was even better. Shelby has grown and matured quite a bit even since those sweet 16 portraits not too long ago! She is truly a great, kind young woman. It’s been so crazy and amazing to watch her go from talking about cute little girl things almost 8 years ago when we met her, to hearing her plan our her future in nursing school and beyond!
We went to a couple of different locations for Shelby’s session, but the second to last one was our favorite! We went to the Alhambra Theater downtown for a few shots, and we’re so glad we did! The Alhambra has been such a crucial part of Shelby’s life, as well as ours! We met Shelby all those years ago doing community theater there, and have watched her grow into an incredibly talented actress and singer! So taking some portraits in the downstairs dressing room was definitely nostalgic to say the least! We’ve all grown up there, and so to document the end of this chapter of Shelby’s life and the beginning of the next in a place that has largely shaped who she is was really a great feeling.
Shelby, you’re great! We had such a fun time on your senior session, and have loved getting to watch you grow up into a beautiful, talented young lady! We know you will do so great in college, and wish you all of the best in whatever you do!
