Meet Emma. Gorgeous High School Senior. Just as beautiful on the inside as on the outside and with a great head on her shoulders. I've known Emma since she was in about 3rd grade and it was so special for me to be able to take her Senior Portraits. I kept thinking this session would make me tear up... but I was able to hold it together, thankfully! Just what a teenager needs... a crying photographer!! Anyway... most of these were taken in the very colorful Manitou Springs. I love, love, love the vivid colors near the Penny Arcade. Emma is an avid reader and a talented dancer, so towards the end we had the great idea of incorporating the two things together to create some special shots for her mom. Dressed in her tutu and tights, we went to Poor Richard's Bookstore and took some portraits of her there. All in all, it was just a very special morning for me. I hope it was for her, too.
