When I first met Erin what struck me most was her beautiful strawberry blond hair and her laid back nature. She mentioned that one of her besties, Sara Nastasi had referred her to me and that they were very close friends. I immediately knew that we would be a great match because I had enjoyed working with Sara so much so knew that if they were friends we would hit it off great too. I asked Erin some questions to get to know her better before her shoot and she said that her favorite ways to spend an afternoon are to hang out with her friends, to sit outside in the sun or to go to the beach. She played softball in high school and is a total nature girl, who loves being outside so I knew that the Howard County Conservancy would be the perfect fit for her shoot since it’s so relaxing and beautiful there much like her.
Erin said that what she learned in high school was that it’s ok to be yourself everywhere you go. “You don’t need to change who you are for anyone,” she explained. I love that she has learned this lesson so early in life and believe it’s something that will take her far. Her favorite subject in school is Anatomy and she plans to study nursing at York College in the fall.
During Erin’s senior portrait session she seemed so relaxed and at ease and it was the perfect shoot. She had her friend, Sara do her makeup for her which looked beautiful and her first outfit was a blue romper that looked amazing with the greenery behind her. Her second outfit was a bright yellow top which was my favorite because it complimented her hair so well and stood out in front of the flowers in the background.
Her mom served as our assistant for the shoot fixing her hair and framing her with branches to get some different shots. We were later joined by her dad and brother and even took a few sibling photos so they would have both of them in the photos to remember this special time as Erin gets ready to head off for college.
Overall it was the perfect evening and I’m so happy that her family chose me to capture this important time in her life. I wish Erin all the best as she starts out on her own and know that she’s going to be an incredible nurse one day!
