Oh, that light! That dress! That Mona Lisa smile!!! Savannah has been so important to me for many years now. I have photographed her from 8th grade till now, her Senior year. I have watched her grow and mature. From a very sweet and shy 13 year old to a confident, clever and incredibly beautiful young woman. Savannah is a faithful and beautiful Christian soul with a sensitive and COURAGEOUS heart. She is a good friend, a wonderful daughter and just one of those incredible human beings we should all be so lucky to have in our lives.
We did two Senior sessions for Savannah (stay tuned for our next session on the blog which took place at Hunkapi Farm in Scottsdale). Savannah has such dimension we couldn't possible capture her spirit in just one location. She is able to fit in beautifully whether in a horse barn or at the beach. One minute she is draped in fatigues with her Dad on a hunting trip and the next she is teaching me how to apply the most flawless makeup and styling her hair with those perfectly messy wave that makes me wonder why I end up with "Mom" hair whenever I try to do the same.
Savannah has the heart (and face) of an angel mixed with so much spirt and drive. She has the world spread out ahead of her and would most certainly succeed at anything she puts her mind to. What has captured her attention and passion? Teaching. Savannah has always dreamed of being a high school teacher and that is what she will pursue. I can't imagine a better role model to young adults than Savannah.
Savannah, thank you for being part of my life over the past 5 years. I can't WAIT to see the path you forge for yourself. The world is better for having you in it.
