My first five minutes on the phone with Savannah was like having a conversation with myself.. “Oh, you’re a Gator?” “You love books?” “You love photography?” How exciting! Seriously, Savannah was nothing short of fabulous to work with! It’s very possible because we seemed to be in sync from the first click of my camera! She was smart, whitty, beautiful and adventurous!
This was also a super fab shoot because mom and dad joined us and they were just as much fun as Savannah! We all made a great team.
We first started at The Oxford Exchange. Since we could only take iPhone pics, it was my first iPhone session (I will be posting pics here soon!) I’d never really been before..what a funky cool place! Savannah shared it was one of her favorite places to visit in town. So it was exciting to check out the unique setting and fun back drop posing up on a beautiful staircase and cool chairs. When we finished up, we headed to University of Tampa where we followed the wind and shot away. I LOVE that Savannah brought some of her favorite reads… Check out Savannah’s favorite books ❤
So many of my personal faves too! I still tear up talking about the Fault in Our Stars!! Gaahh! Augustus Waters! And all those classics… LOVE HER!
Then check out this beautiful backdrop.. Really, the city of Tampa is just gorgeous with Savannah’s beautiful smile in the forefront! Doesn’t her spirit shine through that beautiful smile!?!
This shoot felt like a quote from Augustus Waters “I’m on a roller coaster that only goes up!” 😉
With her love of books represented, we had to bring in her love of photography and I was excited to show her my new film camera gifted to me this past Christmas from a lovely and super thoughtful family member!
When a shoot is this fabulous it’s hard to believe it could be even better, but when the roosters and chickens decided to hang with us I was just over the moon! Seriously..the roosters. the chickens. hanging. with. us. ( Mom and Dad totally helped us with this one)
And we used up the last of our daylight on the top of the city..over looking the beautiful buildings of Downtown Tampa.
Lastly, because we just could not get enough and since we just so happened to be parked at the library, we decided to take a few shots in the best setting ever..a library, surrounded by books!
And I’ll close with a quote by Jane Austen “but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”
That’s totally how I felt about our session, well written and too short! Thank you Savannah, Sharla and Lindell for choosing me to be your Senior photographer, it really was a great experience!
