I love senior portraits. Seriously, they may be my favorite to shoot! When I met Larissa last week at Lair O’ the Bear for her senior portraits, I asked her what kind of music she liked (to get everyone laid back) and the first song that came on was ‘Call Me Maybe’ (which is a guilty pleasure of mine). Larissa immediately stated that this song made her laugh and I knew we were in for an awesome shoot!
Now, I don’t think senior portraits are necessarily scary, but Larissa was totally fearless! Maybe it was the actress in her but if I had told her to bounce up and down, wave her arms in the air and sing ACDC, I think she would have done it. Alas, I didn’t do that, but she was asked to climb a tree, play in a river, pose infront of a restaurant full of people, and flush a medieval toilet. All of which were completed with a huge smile on her face!
I adored learning that Larissa has an incredible love for animals which is leading her to Washington to study Environmental Sciences. We also share a love for Shakespeare which can always strike a conversation leading to anywhere other than Shakespeare.
