Hannah is a senior at University Prep, and friends with my cousin Beatrix. I met Hannah at her home in Bellevue on an overcast, but thankfully not rainy, day in October. The fall leaves were still splashing color here and there, and the wind was blowing softly as we began our shoot down at a dock on Lake Washington. Hannah wasn’t too sure “what to do” in her photos, but when we were walking through her home and I asked her if she has any hobbies, she told me that she plays the guitar. Perfect! Having props or an action to perform are such great ways to warm up with the camera. I even got her to rock out a bit on the dock. 🙂 Soon, Hannah was posin’ like she’d been in Seventeen magazine for the past three years, and I was able to keep her happy and laughing with plenty of corny lines that yours truly is bound to say a million times over (“Aw yeah, work it girl!” “OH MY GOSH, GORGEOUS!” “WOO!”) I had such a blast with Hannah, and she was so easy to work with. This was also the first day I used an 85mm f/1.4, and my gosh, the crispness of the shots! Where had you been all my life, 85?? I couldn’t help but take a billion pictures of her beautiful eyes gazing into the camera. Mesmerizing, seriously.
Alright, alright, without further ado, here are the pics of the lovely Miss Hannah.
My favorite favorite shot of the day. Those eyes, omg!
Thanks for such a fun and awesome day, Hannah! 🙂
