Aniyah needed a quick turnaround on her senior pics since she's in her last semester and had just a week or so to turn in her yearbook photo! We were able to easily accommodate each other's schedules since she has a chunk of time in the middle of the day with no classes. It was COLD the day of her session, so I chose a few places where I knew we could duck in and out of the cold as needed, but still have some awesome light and variety -- thank goodness the sun was shining!! We started out at a parking garage, then headed to Hammerhead Coffee where we warmed up with some hot chocolate and hot tea. After that we ventured to the downtown Champaign area for the "city feel" and then finished up at the mall so we had some skylights and bright white walls to compliment her purple Judah cheerleading uniform!
I think it's always fun to see the progression from the beginning of the session to the end. I don't know if you can see, but I definitely see Aniyah loosening up and relaxing a bit in front of my camera as the session goes on. That's when we start to see real, genuine smiles and true personalities. I loved this session and wish you the best with your future endeavors, Aniyah!
