I'm blown away, really! When I was 18, I felt awkward and was so unaware of myself as I headed off to University. Oh, and my senior portraits were comical for sure!!! They were taken in a studio where I sat on a bench in front of a faux stone wall. I also posed in a fake doorways and even sat on a terrible rope swing with cheap fake flowers. Oh and there were those "senior formal drape photos" too! The photographer put me in awkward leaning positions with one shoulder forward or had me looking over my shoulder. OH how times have changed!
I really and truly adored working alongside with Nikki. Empowering young women, through photography, is so incredibly rewarding and fun! I thank Nikki for her trust in me to provide her with images that are uniquely her own! Her comfortable, cool, and confident attitude will take her far when she heads to Auburn in the fall.
"She has been feeling it for awhile - that sense of awaking. There is a gentle rage simmering inside her, and it is getting stronger by the day. She will hold it close to her - she will nurture it and let it grow. She won't let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel and finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her very core - this is her time. She will not only climb mountains - she will move them too." -- Lang Leav
Best of luck to you, Nikki! WAR EAGLE!!!!
