Have you heard?  Jade Jones, of Fossil Ridge High School, was our Style ReDefined Senior for 2016!  This award is given annually to a high school senior nominated by her peers or teachers as someone who lives her life with a "style" that affects her school and community in a positive way. Now, we are not talking about fashion style - although Jade has an incredible fashion style. We are talking about a person's character, how they treat others, having the confidence to reach out to other students, lifting up those that may be struggling - in other words, a person's "inner style."  

Jade is a perfect example of Style ReDefined.  As the winner, Jade was featured in Twelfth Year Magazine, Vol 4 and you can read more about her story in the print magazine or the online version available here.  The Style ReDefined winner also receives a full Senior Portrait Session from Cindy Short Photography as well as a print package.  Jade's Senior Portrait Session ended up being one of my favorites of all time!

Just being in Jade's presence is enough to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.  But, as a photographer, I was positively giddy when Jade and her Step Mom decided to do some photos together dressed in vintage clothing.  These two have a special bond and they took my breath away dancing through Old Town Fort Collins!

The second part of Jade's session took place at the scenic Poudre River Stables.  Jade seemed to transform with each apparel change and she rocked them all!  From the country look where she made friends with a horse, to the boho skirt down by a stream, to the prom gown as we headed to sunset, Jade glowed with each new style!  As you can see in her images below, Jade is truly beautiful inside and out!
