Micaela is a talented, beautiful young woman, but the thing that stands out most about her is her kindness. She is one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever met. She is genuine in her desire to put others before herself…I’ve seen it over and over again with her friends, four sisters, and parents. Micaela isn’t perfect, no one is, but her faith motivates and empowers her to live for something other than herself. And it’s beautiful.
Micaela is an amazingly talented artist; she gained entrance to the Savannah College of Art and Design, which is unbelievably hard, but opted to continue her education next year at Virginia Tech. (This WaHoo will refrain from commentary at this point.) =)
For Micaela’s senior session, there was no debating that Norfolk was the spot for her. She loves the cobblestone streets near Freemason and the quaint architecture of the old homes that populate the streets near Pagoda Gardens.
Micaela is a true southern girl so, of course, she included a glass of sweet tea in her pictures compliments of Cure Coffeehouse. The result…fun, cute, and original…just like Micaela.
Our session ended where every artist’s session should…the Chrysler Museum of Art. We rambled through the big rooms of the Chrysler enjoying art, each other’s company, and the quiet, inspiring ambiance. The natural lighting was gorgeous and captured the feel of this 1970’s built small but wonderful museum.
Last, but not least, we wrapped up with my complimentary mother-daughter shot. What a sweet friendship Molly and Micaela have. And what a joy to be their photographer-friend.
What’s your favorite spot from Micaela’s session? Freemason, sweet tea, or museum? I’d love to hear.
