When Hannah contacted me for her senior session and told me she is a swimmer I was absolutely thrilled. I’ve been wanting to do some water shots and this was a perfect opportunity.
We started her session by doing some traditional shots in her amazing backyard and on her childhood treehouse. Then we headed to her neighborhood pool where she’s been swimming for basically her whole life. There is a moment in every session I do where a client opens up to me through my camera. It’s a moment in which they become vulnerable and I get to see who they really are. I’m not even sure if they realize this happens but for me it does and it’s the moment we get some of the best photos. Sometimes its after we have a good laugh about something, or when Bill does something silly, but with Hannah it was the moment she entered the pool. I could tell that this was her happy place, her peace, her zen if you will. It was so exciting to capture it and an honor as well. Thank you Hannah for sharing that with me, and for being so very willing to try all kinds of things, jump in and out of the pool and teach me a little about swimming.
