Meet Alexa, a girl who is near and dear to my heart even if I don't get to see her and her mom as often as I used to. Alexa is a true beauty, inside and out. She has a heart of gold and an ornery streak that she has inherited from the rest of her family. I love so many things about this girl, but what I admire more than anything about her is the fact that she is true to herself and has such a caring heart. She spent her senior year mentoring special needs students at her school and absolutely loved it. I can not wait to see what the future holds for her!
Alexa and I were tossing ideas back and forth about ideas for her senior shoot, and she already knew she wanted pictures taken with her 1983 Crown Victoria. Other than that, she really wasn't too sure. I told her I would so some thinking on it, and would get with her in a few days.
After a few days of thinking, a light bulb went off in my head. I just knew we had to get some pictures of Alexa with her Mom's Jeep, but this Jeep is not just "any" Jeep. It belonged to her mom's sister, before she unexpectedly passed away at way too young of an age, and it was her prized possession. I contacted Alexa and asked her if she would like to have pictures done with her Aunt's old Jeep, and she loved the idea. The only catch..we needed to keep it a secret from her mom and grandma so we could surprise them with them when they came to view and pick out their pictures. I left it up to her and her sneaky sister, Chelsi, to figure out how to get the Jeep past her mom. It wasn't too hard, from what I understand!
In true teenage fashion, Alexa called to let me know she was running just a little late and would be at the studio about a half hour later. Personally, I have to tell you that I 100% fully believe that God fully planned it that way, so that we would be able to capture this gorgeous sunset right as we were leaving the location we were shooting at.
