Amanda is a Piedra Vista High School Senior, Class of 2012, and a dancer. She is friends with one of our past model/senior clients (Katelin Mitchell) who was also a PVHS student and dancer. I loved working with Katelin so much and I knew that working with anyone connected with her would be wonderful. So, of course, Amanda’s session was a blast! She and her mom drove up to Durango (really early in the morning on Amanda’s spring break) so that we could photograph her session in the morning and she could be done in time to get back for dance practice (they had state this past weekend). Amanda is so beautiful and so much fun to photograph. She has a beautiful smile and a great “serious” face too. We started in the studio, because it really was so early in the morning that it was still freezing outside. We used the “new” set of doors we got from Appaloosa Trading Company and a few of my other favorite backdrops. Then we headed out into the cold and Amanda was so tough! I was impressed! We used a couple of my favorite downtown spots that we hadn’t used in a while and then we noticed the train coming by. I thought it would be fun to have Amanda standing on the tracks with the oncoming train in the background – crazy, I know! Like I always say – it’s always an adventure! I hope you love these few of my faves from the day!
