Hey guys! This is Olivia. Can you believe that I used to babysit this beautiful gal?! Now she's a senior in high school and now I'm... feeling old (ha!).
Olivia is the daughter of one of my close friends, Melissa, who I met during my days working at Hallmark in Brookfield. I began babysitting Olivia and her brother Charlie, what feels like, not that long ago. (Seven years isn't that long, right?)
Olivia was much younger then obviously, but I feel as though she hasn't changed a bit. Maybe it's because I refuse to believe that she's almost *gulp* an adult! How can that be?!
Enough of my age denial. More about our session and Olivia.
We found nice scenic spot (and rather popular I might add) on the Menomonee River Parkway near Hoyt Park by the bridge. I've shot here before and, funny enough, this is actually where I got my senior portraits done too!
Olivia is incredibly talented at playing the flute. she marches in the marching at Brookfield East and admits that it will be hard to hand over that uniform at the end of this year. Naturally, we did some poses with her beloved flute.
Olivia is truly such a one-of-a-kind person, and it has been a privilege to watch her grow up into an amazing young woman. She's exceptionally kind, hysterically funny, free spirited, radiant person and an absolute delight to photograph. I feel as though her personality genuinely shone through in her portraits.
So excited to see where life takes her but, for now, go class of 2016!
