Senior Portrait:  Lara

Last month, I did a senior portrait session with Lara – who has been one of my favorite models since she was little! We did a lot of traditional senior portraits, then decided to work on something a little more artistic.   We went with much more dramatic lighting and played around with some more unconventional cropping.
