I am so thrilled to introduce Chandler Lowham from Fossil Ridge High School as our first Style ReDefined Senior! Now, I am sure you are wondering what Style ReDefined means so, let me explain. Back in December of 2014, we began to plan for the Spring 2015 release of Vol. 3 of Twelfth Year magazine. This issue would feature the CSP 2016 Senior Models wearing apparel and accessories from local stores and boutiques that highlight the year's hottest trends. With the main focus being fashion, we wanted to include another definition of beauty and style. At Cindy Short Photography, we have always believed that the most beautiful portraits come from connecting with the subject. It is this connection that allows the camera to capture the person's true spirit, their authentic beauty.
So, my studio manager, Tonya and I went to dinner and brainstormed. The result is Style ReDefined. It means that true style is not about fashion and the clothes you wear but the way in which you live your life. True style is seen in how you interact with your peers and community. True style is seen in the effect you have on those around you. A Style ReDefined Senior realizes that he or she can make a difference and create change by encouraging and uplifting the people in his or her school and community.
To select the first Style ReDefined Senior, we collected nominations from the current senior class at local schools. Hearing peers, family and a teacher/track coach talk about Chandler Lowham made the selection easy. Chandler embodies all of the characteristics that we were seeking. In fact, three words were repeatedly used to describe Chandler: Caring, Compassionate and Selfless. Chandler is known for supporting and encouraging her peers despite her own struggles.

So, of course we had to do a photo session! After the professional make up application, Chandler and I headed out to Poudre River Stables in Fort Collins. This down to earth girl just glows in the light of a barn on one of my favorite spots. Next, we went to Horsetooth Reservoir for a more dramatic backdrop. Chandler was a great sport when I asked her to hold a scarf that looks like an American flag. These photos of Chandler will take your breath away, she is truly beautiful in every way.
