After our first scheduled session was rained out (But hooray for rain!), Reina, her mom and I met up for her senior photo shoot at a country club in Southwest Austin. It was a chilly morning to be outside taking photos, but you only get to capture a senior year portrait once, so we went for it with our frozen fingers!
Reina is an accomplished violinist, and brought her instrument along for a few shots. Rather than have her just pose with the instrument, I asked her to play. I loved her reaction as she played an out-of-tune, cold, string instrument with frozen fingers.
That’s true musicianship, people. She can’t even stand to hear her instrument out of tune when I’m making her play it that way on purpose.
I love these photos with her violin. So beautiful.
Reina is also an athlete – she’s on the soccer team at her high school. A true Renaissance woman!
But most importantly, Reina comes from one of the most wonderful, most loving families I’ve ever met. Her mom is just as delightful as she is. Even though she wasn’t planning to get in the photos, I had her jump in at the very end for this one. (Part of my quest to get moms in the picture with their kids!)
