Alyssa and I have been friends for a few years now. When we first met, she was about to be a senior in high school, and was excitedly talking about having her senior portraits taken after we got home from summer camp. I told her I'd be happy to have her in front of my camera any time, and that we'd have to shoot together someday.
Fast forward to the following summer, and she and I were co-counselors in the same cabin! It was a week full of fun, and I'll always remember the summer that I had Alyssa as my co. This year, because of work and school schedules, Alyssa wasn't able to make it back to summer camp :( So, we made it a point to meet up after I got home from camp, and we finally had that fun shoot that we'd been talking about for a few years.
We went to the MSU Horticultural Gardens, a favorite location of mine, can you tell? And were surprised that the parking lot was closed for construction, but that didn't stop us. We made our way into the flowers, and had a great time just laughing and shooting together. Here are a few of my favorites from that evening. Enjoy!
