The first time I photographed the lovely Sophie Lafayette was for this year's edition of Twelfth Year magazine.  Sophie, a senior from Fossil Ridge High School, was modeling the Elegant Maxi style as a member of the 2015 CSP Model Team.  I loved the natural confidence I saw in Sophie and it was even more evident through my lens.  Sophie is so comfortable just being Sophie!  

This intelligent, world traveler spent the summer in the Netherlands visiting family and is hoping to return for college.  As a dual U.S and Dutch citizen Sophie just may get to realize her dream.  She returned home just in time for her Senior Portrait Session in August.  As part of making each session unique, I love incorporating something special into Senior Sessions such as their favorite sport, hobby or passion.   And although Sophie has participated in several sports such as tennis and lacrosse, her real passion is for reading.  So, Sophie's session began in the studio playing with books.  I love the expressions in her studio shots! You can see how much fun it is to hang out with this girl!  

Next up was Old Town Fort Collins for some fun with a giant lollipop and cinnamon soda from Rocket Fizz. Nothing like sugar to get you energized for a photo shoot!  It apparently worked because Sophie was still laughing as we ended our session in the woods near the Cache La Poudre River.  It was late Summer and I was amazed at how calmly elegant Sophie looked in a stunning blue dress as we doused ourselves in mosquito repellant!  I am sure you will agree that Sophie is jaw-dropping GORGEOUS in her Senior Photos!
