AnaMichele {solo}

Nov 1

I taught a high school photography class for two years, and AnaMichele was one of my students. Β She is full of passion (which spills over into her photography!), and a genuinely caring soul. Since she is a senior this year, she asked me if I would be willing to do a photo shoot…but with a twist. AnaMichele wanted something more editorial for our session. I felt like a kid taken into a toy store with a wad of money- full artistic license to play! You can see AnaMichele’s beautiful spirit and collaboration fingerprints all over these, and I’m so excited to share these pictures.

    Bravo Alyssa! What a remarkable range of creative poses and expressions…capturing both pensive and genuinely joyful moods…not to mention subtle aspects of AnaMichele’s beauty and grace. And you even managed to frame traces of the ‘sprite’ in her (which anyone who knows her can attest to!).
