Inspiration: Bright, Girly, Pretty and natural.  We wanted to make sure Ashley still looked like a 17 year old girl and showcase her beauty at this point in her life.

Equipment:  Canon Mark iii 5D.  85 1.2 (thanks Kelli France)

Concept or Style Collaboration:  Ashley has previously been a part of two styled sessions with all of the senior reps, so going into her custom session, she knew what to expect.  She nailed her poses!

Editing:  Keeping things clean and vivid is my signature edit.

Favorite thing about  this session:  I love how Ashley’s happiness shows through!  She has such a bright future, it has been such a special opportunity to work with her!
