I am so excited to have been Alaina’s Saratoga senior photographer. She has such an infectious smile, and an easy going personality. It’s always such a pleasure to work with people who take things in stride and go with the flow. It really helps my creativity flow and encourages me to try to new things with a willing and eager model.
Alaina has such a cool sense of style that she’s really adapted as her own. I’m always amazed by young women who have already embraced fashion and found their style. It reflects maturity, creativity, and a certain joie de vivre. As a Saratoga senior photographer, I always encourage clients to own their style and show off who they are right now. Things will change in one way or another down the road so embrace the here and now. Wear your favorite shirt, hat or shoes. Use your clothes not as props, but as elements of self-expression. You’re a teenager now, but when you’re 30, I want you to look back at these photos and say, “Yes! I loved that outfit!” I want who you are to be as evident in your photos as memories of songs that played at your prom, or the smell of the ocean when you took a senior trip with your best friends.
She was so natural in front of the camera, and we really lucked out with our setting. It had recently rained so the location had gorgeous light with beautiful shades of green reflecting in the sun. I cannot emphasize how stunning it was as the sun was peeking out of the clouds. Beautiful days make for beautiful photographs.
Alaina is a nationally ranked tennis player now studying at UCLA. The best of luck to you in everything you do, Alaina!
