Downtown El Paso, San Jancito Plaza, and a High School Senior!
Apr 16, 2020 | By: Chrisinda Treadwell
A beautiful smile and dreams for the future, this was certainly a session to remeber!
Before life changed for us all, let me take you back to a special moment this past February, where a 2020 High School Senior had her "Senior Session" with us! It was a cloudy day, as it seems to go for me when I plan sessions at San Jancito Plaza, and I met this High School Senior for the first time. Why did I say a "special moment" earlier when describing this session? Well, little did we all know that life would change for us all a few short weeks after this session and blogging about this session takes me back to that moment and is a reminder of how precious life is. I photograph many people, blessed for sure to work a job I love, but my business and the challenges it now faces, will test my small business and its endurance, but for now, we wait, we wait to move forward and to once again provide our clients with memorable images. I have a passion to photograph High School Seniors and to give them a true, fun experience while I capture a very important moment in their life. I want them to remember their time with me and my business and to love their images so much that they have a hard time choosing their favorites! This session is not about my gear or any technical terms, which I normally talk about, but just about a young lady who has dreams for the future and a mom who was just happy that she found me.
What can I say about this beautiful young lady, but that she was quietly excited and nervous about her session. That nervousness quickly faded when I showed her the images of her that I had taken on my camera. She followed my direction well and let the bystanders compliment her and watch as the session continued on. Yes, we bring a little attention with us, but I want my clients to feel important and to feel my undivided attention to them no matter who is around. I feel like, or have learned that everyone can be a natural in front of the camera, with the right direction and this High School Senior was just awesome to photograph! Although life is different for this High School Senior now and Graduation for her may not happen, I am so thankful that she had fun and that we had a chance to chat and talk about life and the future during her session. We are excited to see how life will play out for her as she starts on a new path in her life's journey. We certainly appreciate her and her mom for allowing us to be part of this special moment!
