Senior photos provide an opportunity to glow

Senior photos provide an opportunity to glow

One aspect of taking portraits that I treasure is the opportunity to connect with people. I love being able to coax out that smile, encourage a laugh, show off their best. I had the distinct privilege of taking Noor’s senior portrait this past weekend at Bothell Landing. We strolled around the park for an hour taking…

Chasing Butterflies at The Herbfarm
