. I met Shana WAAAYYYY back in last summer for her senior photo session. I actually thought was in September, but looking back, it was August! Yikes I am even more behind than I thought!
Anyway - Shana and I went back and forth about locations. She is an Oil City senior, so I suggested the usual local parks and urban locations. However, I also threw into the mix that I would love to do a session on the beaches of Presque Isle State Park up in Erie. I am actually in Erie quite frequently as that is my hometown and all my family lives there. And I spent many many days basking in the sun on those beaches so it is definitely one of my favorite places. So, when Shana thought the beach was a great idea I was just thrilled!!!
I met Shana and her mom in the late afternoon. I scouted out a bunch of locations throughout Presque Isle so we had lots of options - from the bayfront, to the monument, to a dock, to - of course - the beach!
The weather was a bit iffy and we even had some drizzling rain, but the colors and the backdrops were just stunning. Shana was sweet and beautiful and I really enjoyed meeting her and her mom.
So, onto the photos!!!!
And this is definitely the artist's fave!!! This perfect piece of driftwood was just sitting there waiting for us. I wanted to just take it home so I can use it again and again. I just loved it!!!!! Too back I was driving a tiny Civic.
Thank you all so much!!! Thank you for traveling to Erie and being such great sports in spite of the weather. I wish great success in all you do!!
And I would love an opportunity for more "beach inspired" shoots this year!!! (HINT HINT!!!) Anyone??
Until next time!!!!
