Charlotte | Blacksburg High School Senior Photography
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Charlotte as one of my high school seniors, class of 2016. I was VERY excited about this session as soon as it was booked. I know I have mentioned before how I taught some of the seniors I had the pleasure of photographing (they are all super kids!) but Charlotte has a special place in my heart. Charlotte came to my math class as a sweet little 6th grader. I enjoyed having her in class every day. She was always kind, funny, and an all around super person to spend the day with. When she went to 7th grade I was very excited to see that she got placed in my 7th grade advanced math class as well! I was doubly lucky! Over the years since I have run into her mom and heard from her from time to time. I have gotten to hear all about how she’s doing and see the awesome young woman she is growing into. As I am sure you can tell, I am one of her biggest fans. Charlotte is one of those kids you never forget.
Charlotte’s extracurricular activities include: being the cellist in the Blacksburg United Methodist Church orchestra, president of Heroes 4 Haiti club, National Honors Society, and a member of the Virginia Tech Low Strings Ensemble. In addition to all of that, she enjoys spending time with my friends and loved ones. She also enjoys creating art, listening to music, and playing the cello.
For our photo shoot, Charlotte was going for a vibe where she really just looked like herself. She was going for a more comfortable/cozy look for the first outfit, and then with other outfit she was hoping to look more creative and “edgy”. I definitely think we pulled it off!
I asked Charlotte if she had any advice for seniors considering a session with us. Here is what she had to offer: “I would tell them to act natural and to be confident! I would say that if they don’t normally wear make-up, then they should just go as themselves!” Solid advice!
After graduation, she hopes to be able to spend a lot of time with her friends and loved ones. She would then like to go to college where she would hopefully end up with a successful job and eventually, a successful career!
I wish her a lifetime of happiness :)!
