I hate the following expression but if I were to be use it about anyone, it’s her– this girl is full of piss and vinegar. I think that is why she photographs so well.
Ever since she was little, I’d tell her that some people take time to figure out who they are, but for her it just comes naturally. She’s a go-getter and no one is going to change her mind.
I asked her to pose for these pictures, so they are not as authentic as I’d like them to be. Although, a bottle of Coke is one of her favorite things in the world and it just so happened to be her prop for the shoot.
Maybe that’s why she agreed.
I took these photos in high school for my college portfolio. Time flies!
