Molly Barnes came in for her Durango High School Class of 2013 Senior Model Session pictures over spring break. Molly’s older sister, Lynsey, came in for her senior portraits as a Class of 2011 Senior a few years ago. Click to see her senior picture sneak preview. When I realized Molly was going to be a senior next year, I was so excited about her being a model for Allison Ragsdale Photography and about photographing her. I think I told Molly’s mom about our model party the day before it happened, and Molly was able to attend, and we were photographing her a week later! Molly met us at the studio so we could go to Hair Fusion together and it was hailing! I felt awful about the weather – but by the time we were done with hair and make up, the sun was shining. It did rain later, but at least it wasn’t hailing anymore. Molly has incredible blue eyes and we happened upon a blue wall that made them stand out even more. Molly plays basketball also, so she brought a ball and her letter jacket. The cherry blossom trees (or crab apple trees perhaps – I’m not sure what they actually are) had just started to blossom and I love those trees so much that we had to use them! The ones up at Fort Lewis College hadn’t bloomed yet, but I still love the trees up there, so we used those too. We did find some downtown that were blooming. Which also means that for the next couple of weeks, you’ll be seeing a lot of crab apple tree blossom pictures. Just a heads up. We finished the session in the studio as the wind and rain were starting to win and I was ready to feel my fingers again. I hope you love these few of my favorites and I’ll be adding the music video shortly – so check back to see that!
