{Caira} Class of 2018 Key Team Model

Meet Caira! Our Class of 2018 Key Team Model from Fife High School! Caira brought us out to Carbonado for her model shoot and I always love hearing the oohs and awes when clients see this impressive scenery. This location is truly an experience all on it's own. At 250 feet above the river, you are still able to feel the mist rising. A bit eerie, but we suspect part of that feeling is the remnants of the Melmont Ghost Town below. Once a coal mining town, Melmont is now reduced to almost nothing after a forest fire destroyed the remaining buildings. If you're adventurous enough to slip down the side of the hill, you are able to see whats left of Melmont: a small building for storing explosives, a small bridge and the foundation of the schoolhouse. There's not much to see, but it's still a fun little trek. Especially if you run into a GHOST! Just kidding. I hope.   

While I'll now be checking all frames for ghosts, the beautiful lady you can clearly see is not a figment of your imagination. She actually exists and is quite the sweetheart! Caira made my job so easy and posed away while her mom snuck off to take selfies over the bridge. We had a little giggle but you can't not selfie on this bridge. Lucky for Caira, she had her own personal photographer so we captured some gorgeous shots! The weather was perfect for our shoot and I loved that we got a little bit of soft golden light at the very end. I'm so excited for Caira to be on the team, and watch how much she grows over the next year.

{Emilee} Class of 2018 Key Team Model

Today I get to blog about my first model session for Emilee! Emilee is my super sweet Class of 2018 Model from Sumner High School. Fun Fact: Emilee actually job shadowed me at the beginning of last year for a school project! When I received her application for the Key Team, I was all on board. She may be cute and tiny, but this girl has the biggest heart. 

Our day started out early to pick out what she was wearing and then we did makeup and drove to Daniel Ross Salon in Bonney Lake for hair. I love working with Daniel Ross Salon and am always excited to have clients have hair or makeup done there. We opted for some sweet, soft curls which perfectly framed Emilee's face.  

Stocking up on snacks, we drove the windy back roads to Fairfax Bridge. One of my favorite shoot locations! Can I just say- we had the best lighting for Emilee's session! I'm a sucker for overcast as it creates the best even skin tones and we were even graced with a peek of warm lighting at the very end of the shoot. Just the way I like it! Koda was able to go on this shoot as well and she loved the attention and adventure- and maybe also licking all of the snow. 

I can't wait to spend more time with the beautiful little lady! If you personally know Emilee, make sure to ask her about a special referral discount!
