amara // portraits

These past two weeks have been the busiest, photography-wise, than they have ever been in my life. I crammed three senior sessions, a sister shoot, and an engagement shoot almost back-to-back--add that to CLEP test prep and Cross Country practice, and you've got one tired girl. 

But photo shoots are one thing I can never run out of energy for, no matter how often I do them. And I thought it was about time I shared some of my recent work with my blog readers--because I really have been unintentionally neglecting you. That said, meet Amara.

Amara and I really have only "officially" known each other for about a week and a half; she is a friend of one of my friends, and asked me via Facebook if I could do her senior pictures (has anyone noticed that Facebook is a rad free advertising campaign? I have done zero advertising whatsoever, and still they come!). Needless to say, we hit it off right away and I hope to see more of her in the near future!

Amara has such a natural, untouched beauty--just like her name (which I adore, by the way). She's also an amazing soccer player, and though I haven't known her very long, comes across as someone who appreciates the little things. And so, without further adieu--Amara. 



I hope everyone is having a lovely "last-of-summer." I am trying to appreciate even the melty popsicles and chlorine and sunburns while I can.

xo,
Lucia
