elizabeth + prom

Meet my cousin, Elizabeth.  Besides being gorgeous, she is hilarious, super smart, impressively talented with a tennis racquet, and so many other things.  This past weekend was her Junior year prom, and she so sweetly asked if I could come snap a few photos.  Of course!

There were a few things making this quite the challenging shoot.

  1. crazy harsh sun
  2. shadows everywhere from the large rocks
  3. a group of 15 teens, amped up for prom

Despite the conditions, I had a blast shooting Elizabeth and her friends.  Parents were also there snapping away, so I didn’t order the group around too much.  I just let them do their own thing.

I can’t wait to shoot Elizabeth’s senior photos.  She is going to be so much fun to work with again!  Tons of personality to let shine in front of the camera.

I was able to get a few shots of some of the other couples as well.

Towards the end of the shoot the sun finally ducked behind a few clouds.  Such a difference!

Stunning.
