I met up with Lavisha and her dad at the Arnold Arboretum on a beautiful but scorching summer day. She was graduating from high school, it’s always interesting to meet young people as their gaining independence. A senior portrait shoot is a great way for them to feel validated, boost their confidence, and get excited about their next steps! Lavisha is so glamorous, and had all sorts of fun ideas for poses saved on her phone. We met up by the Rhododendron path at the Arnold Arboretum, it’s stunningly beautiful in the summer. My favorite shots are in the shade with a shaft of light highlighting her hair and gorgeous dress. She was definitely nervous, but she came out of her shell and did a great job! We got a quick shot with her dad just for fun. It was a great shoot!
