Sasha was such fun to photograph. We took portraits of her to celebrate her journey into the teenage years, and to celebrate her becoming a Bat Mitzvah. I think any session where there’s impromptu singing, tons of laughter, and even a tear or two is a good one. Add some gorgeous light and a bit of twirling and it really is almost perfect. This one hit all the marks. Although most of my clients want their Cape Cod portraits taken on the beach, Sasha didn’t. She’s a total individual and definitely marches to her own beat. Which I have to say, I adore about her. So we picked a spot where there was a bit of graffiti, some old train tracks, this cool path, and of course a basketball court. (You’ll have to wait for the next post for some of those things…)
While we were photographing we talked about Robert Frost’s The Road not Taken, and it kind of became a description of Sasha in my mind. She is unique and super bright, really funny, a self proclaimed geek, a punk, gorgeous soul who is truly a delight to be around. On my Facebook page, I wrote ” it is without a doubt I know that she will take the road less traveled by, and in doing so, will make a huge difference in our world” and I really believe that.
Welcome to the teenage years, Sasha. Mazel Tov on becoming a Bat Mitzvah! May you always be the free spirit you are today, be confident in yourself and just be your fabulous self!
