Clare! She’s a senior at Bellarmine Prep High School in the Class of 2017!There are not many times that I can think of that I was a little nervous when it came to shooting a senior….but, I had a moment of a twinge of nervousness as I was getting ready to meet Clare! She doesn’t look intimidating, does she? Well..that’s because she isn’t! But, she is a very talented photographer who has been part of the Made To Create PNW community! I met her a couple years back when she came to one of our retreats and have loved getting to know her as she continued to take classes from us and she comes to our coffee nights! So…because I know she is also a talented young photographer, I got a little nervous that I wouldn’t meet her vision for her own senior photos! But, we had so much fun and we had WAY TOO MANY gorgeous shots of her by the end of our time!Clare wanted a mix of Tacoma…so we started urban down at the Glass Museum!We had beautiful light…but, even if it had been overcast..her smiles lights up the room anyway!Love those brown eyes!Then we high tailed it to Chambers Bay to grab that lovely golden hour!WOW! It’s fun to shoot other photographers! I will say that a few times I had to remind myself that I was working cause Clare and I get to talking about gear and shooting and we didn’t want to waste the light!Cutie!Don’t we live in the most beautiful place?Sunny smiles!She has a little bit of mischief in her eyes, I think! haha!Last outfit…last rays of golden sun!Gorgeous!This is one of my favorites..and I always giggle cause she never even questioned me when I said, “Ok, I want you to lay all the way down in the itchy grass …in a dress!” Such a good sport!THANKS, Clare! I have loved getting to know you and will be so sad if you go off to college and don’t come back to visit us! Happy Senior Year!!!!!
