Sweet Caroline....buh buh buh...
I know I can't be the first one that has done that before. So props to not being original.
But very sweet she is. It's also funny because she always gets called Carolyn and I, Carolyn, always get called Caroline. Funny world.
Caroline is a junior at Wahlert Catholic High School. Not only was she sweet, but also a natural model. She said she doesn't really get her pictures taken, but then I would pull my camera out and *bam* *bam* *bam* she rocked every pose. Made my job really easy and fun.
It was really hot the evening we took the photos. I think Caroline gets the trooper award. She rocked it the whole night and in the pictures she looks like a perfectly temperatured angel! (Is that a thing?)
We shot at her grandparent's gorgeous house, garden, and pool. All the heart eyes. Then we shot at her equally amazing house. All the heart eyes again. I'm going back there in the fall and I can't wait!
As a photographer I'm creative and "see" photos as a vision waiting to come to life. Sounds cheesy, but it's da truth. I would explain a situation in my head to Caroline and she would execute it perfectly. I asked her if she was ever in drama before because she took direction really well (she was).
For instance, I told her to walk through the willow tree in a fairy like manner. Not only did we get some gorgeous serious shots, but some beautiful smiling ones as well! See, it works. I'm not crazy!
She's enjoyed her time in Iowa but is ready to see what else is out there. Her dream is to be the next best-selling author! I hope I stroll through Barnes and Nobles one day and see a book written by Caroline. She loves music, singing, and hanging out with her close friends.
Caroline is certainly a busy bee. She's involved with cross country, tennis, varsity show choir, humane society, her school's spring musical, and a cappella choir.
She loves reading, writing, and watching lots of Netflix. Sounds just like me...
Her friends describe her as loyal, trustworthy, and creative.
Favorite music: The Front Bottoms, Panic! At the Disco, Young the Giant, Modern Baseball, Moose Blood, Brand New, The 1975, Mayday Parade, Flatsound, Taking Back Sunday, Hamilton Soundtrack.... to name a few
What makes a woman beautiful? "When she shines very bright with self-love and love for someone else"
We'll end on one of her favorite quotes:
"I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart: I am, I am, I am."
-Sylvia Plath, The Bell Ja
Till next time.
