Aaliyah Moore and I had so much fun photographing together. She brought her entire family to her session and we laughed none stop! I always love when families can be a part of such a special moment; this also means a lot for seniors. Our session started off in Downtown Jackson Mi. Being able to photograph in an area where a senior spends a lot of their time adds more to the entire experience and gives them memories to cherish.
How about I share a hilarious moment we had during her session. As we are out walking I wanted to get an image of Aaliyah walking across the street strutting a runway model walk. This definitely is not what happened. As I'm telling her to walk towards me, she starts busting out laughing. Then all of a sudden she just stops right in the middle of the street and throws her hands up and say, "I don't know what to do!" All of us are laughing and yelling at her saying, "AALIYAH JUST WALK!" This image ended up being her favorite out of the bunch. I to absolutely love this image so much that is display in my studio as a banner sample.
Aaliyah's mother Lanai had one location she wanted her daughter to get photographed in front of. This mural is one of her mom's favorite! Downtown Jackson is filled with such beautiful paintings all decorated on numerous buildings. I think this one turned out amazing. Look at her with her beautiful hair blowing in the wind.
Also, did I mention Aaliyah is a cheerleader? Yes in deed, we had to showcase her rocking some of her moves in an alley!
Thank you Aaliyah for trusting in me on capturing amazing images for you! I hope I've created an experience and memories that will last a life time for you and your family.
