As some of you may know a few months back I was offering two free senior sessions for deserving seniors. I had several great nomination choices and ended up selecting one guy and one girl. I am featuring the winning young lady first. Miss A is very artistic and I had the privilege of photographing her throwing on the wheel. I couldn’t get over how easy she made it look. I felt like I hadn’t even gotten started good before she was done. I see why she has made it to state two different times! Then we enjoyed her animals and the beauty at her home outside of Rockport. I still can’t decided which animal is my favorite! I enjoyed the ease that Miss A demonstrated as we went through the session. I am not only excited to share some of her images here but also a little Q & A. Enjoy Miss A’s senior session.
