Let me warn you in advance - I'm going to share way too many photo from this session. I had so much trouble narrowing down which ones I wanted to share - Ashlyn looked so beautiful in all of them!
Meet Ashlyn. Her sweet grandmother wanted to document Ashlyn's 16th birthday with a photo session. I met Ashlyn and found her to be quiet, thoughtful and sweet. And such a natural beauty!
The day of our photo shoot was typical So Texas weather - the sun was shining but it was windy and COLD. Ashlyn showed up with a coat on, we talked a bit and then she took the coat off to reveal this drop dead gorgeous red dress that fit her perfectly. As if it was made just for her. And what a trooper - it was so cold but she never complained, never even got a goose bump!
As we walked, I got to know her a little better. She told me she loves literature and loves to read. Her soulful eyes twinkled when she told me she knew literature would somehow be a part of her future.
Her second outfit was jeans, a sweater and sneakers and Ashlyn because a bit more playful and her personality really shined in that section of the session!
As I spent time with Ashlyn the lyrics of Sammy Kershaw's song came to mind: "She don't know she's beautiful (Never crossed her mind) She don't know she's beautiful (No, she's not that kind) She don't know she's beautiful." Ashlyn is so modest, I don't think she even realized how amazing she looked on this day. But I think she does now. These photos captured her true beauty and personality. What a precious treasure she is!!
