Emma is a gatherer.
When Emma and her momma first came to the studio for her consultation, I instantly knew that we were going to get along. Not only did she tell me about all the clubs and extracurricular activities she was involved in, but she also shared with me how she loved to volunteer, and host weekend friend nights at her place. Coupled with her love for books and Lord of the Rings, and I was ready to be her BFF right then and there!
For her session I knew I wanted to capture her warm and inviting spirit, her outgoing personality, and I wanted to do something with her hands to represent the way she brings people together. We hit up one of her favorite coffee shops downtown to start with her favorite seasonal drink, a pumpkin chai, then had a blast dancing to Drake while we danced and played in the sun for the rest of the evening. We may have had a moment where we were covered in glitter and could NOT figure out how to get it off, but all it did was provide more laughs for us in the end!
What emma and her mom had to say:
“I can not recommend Makayla enough! If you want a photographer who also feels like your bff, she is the way to go. She is not only incredibly talented but also super professional. Makayla does it all! She makes you feel so comfortable when you’re shooting and she personalizes every part of your session!”
“Makayla took my daughter's senior pictures and was so great to work with. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She did such a great job choosing locations and seemed to get the perfect shot.
Makayla helped with wardrobe guidance and she made my daughter feel so at ease. My daughter had such a wonderful experience and the pictures are beautiful. We would definitely use Makayla again and highly recommend her to others.”
I know Emma is going to be a WORLD CHANGER and am so honored to call her a dear friend after her session.
Thank you both so much for trusting me and allowing me to capture Emma during her senior year!
