Sophia | {Franklin High School Senior-Class of 2017}

Tacoma Senior Photos0001 This is Sophia!  She lives in Franklin, Tennessee, but came out here to her childhood home to have her senior photos taken!  She is graduating here soon with the Class of 2017!Tacoma Senior Photos0002I think it can be a little bit unfair that one person get such amazing eyes, long legs, and gorgeous hair….but, when you meet Sophia and see that her outward beauty only shines so bright because of her inward beauty…it makes it easier to be ok with it!Tacoma Senior Photos0003I have known Sophia since she was born…and I have loved her mother as a sister to me for even longer, so it was such an honor to get to see her again and photograph her for this special time in their lives!Tacoma Senior Photos0004I had the privilege of photographing her sister’s senior session a couple of years ago, but the whole family wasn’t able to be there for that…so, having Sophia, and her sister, and my friend, Lisa, all there was super fun! I don’t get to see Lisa very often and when I do, there’s never enough time!Tacoma Senior Photos0005Sophia is a bright and warm young woman!  She has a confidence about her that makes her seem more mature than her years.Tacoma Senior Photos0006And, she laughs big!  Which, of course, I love!Tacoma Senior Photos0007Tacoma Senior Photos0008We wanted to capture some PNW spots for her since she doesn’t get back home to Washington very often!Tacoma Senior Photos0009We were so lucky to have a beautiful evening..even though it was quite chilly!Tacoma Senior Photos0010LOVE!Tacoma Senior Photos0011You would never believe that this golden light popped through in the middle of winter…but, when I get it, I cherish it!!!Tacoma Senior Photos0012Sophia has done some modeling and thought about pursuing it for a career…which she obviously could, but I loved that she has a different dream for herself and laughed when she admitted, too, that “she loves to eat too much!”  Tacoma Senior Photos0013Beautiful!Tacoma Senior Photos0014We ended our session on the beach…the perfect shout out to what’s beautiful here in Tacoma!Tacoma Senior Photos0015After, Sophia graduates she will be heading off to do a Discipleship Training Course (DTS) with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) for a year…it’s an intensive time that really helps you to focus on God and on serving others.  I think it’s a perfect thing for a young person to do before they dive in to the pursuit of a career!  Tacoma Senior Photos0016But, then after that she has goals of attending possibly Pepperdine or UW Seattle to start her education!Tacoma Senior Photos0017I would love it if she came to UW cause then I think I would see her mom more!!!  Ulterior motives!Tacoma Senior Photos0018WOW!Tacoma Senior Photos0019Tacoma Senior Photos0020The sun was heading behind the trees…and we were all starting to shiver, so we grabbed a few more shots…Tacoma Senior Photos0021…and had a few more laughs….Tacoma Senior Photos0022Tacoma Senior Photos0023…before sadly it was time to be done!  That’s always the sad moment for me….I do love my job!
Tacoma Senior Photos0024Sophia!  Thanks so much for planning your session while you were here!  I loved seeing you and your family again!  I just know you are going to have quite the adventure next year!  Soak it all in!!!!  Happy Graduation!Tacoma Senior Photos0025
