This young lady my job as a Photographer effortless!
We started off our summer session at Natasa's home. She just got a new kitten named Willow, a sweet, small, rather elusive kitten. it was our goal to take photos of Natasa and her new furbaby prior to going out on location. After about a half hour of trying to get the scared kitty out of a certain spot that was unreachable Willow decided to make an appearance! I was SO glad she did! She was as sweet as could be and we got some adorable shots of these two beauties!
I loved Natasa's colorful wardrobe she brought with our shoot! I particularly loved her in RED!
I'm so happy that Natasa was so flexible. When we got to one of our locations I painted on a window, Peace, Love and Happiness...well, I had to run to my car and get a 70's style vest and glasses as it was so fitting for the window. Natasa had no problem with trying new things!
I truly enjoyed our session with her and her mama who so nice brought a sunflower bouquet which seemed to fit so perfectly into our session! Thanks Denise! :)
Best to you Natasa...you'll do great things!
I always like to ask the mom's if they have anything they would like to add to my blog posts as they know their child so well. Here is what Natasa's mom had to say:
A few thoughts...
I’m proud Natasa has grown to be a very responsible young lady who has her priorities in order. She’s always excelled in school, thanks to her discipline with her studies and genuine desire to learn. She’s pursuing a college education in business and communications, and has applied to several schools in Midwest. She’s toured a handful of schools so far and falls in love with each one. She’ll make her final decision in the spring of 2019.
In her teen years, she’s been her parents’ partner is helping with chores around the house and caring for her younger brother, Peter. She enjoys helping in the kitchen and it’s a treat when she cooks and bakes!
Natasa is such a joy to be around. She’s witty, fun-loving and sweet. Our favorite pastimes are exploring new restaurants in the city, shopping (makeup and clothes, of course!), poolside lunches, music concerts and Cubs games.
Natasa loves to travel and explore new cultures. She’s visited several fun cities in the U.S. - her favorites are L.A. and New York City. And her passport has several stamps from her visits to family in Greece and Adelaide, Australia.
Natasa always had a heart for animals, and finally at the age of 17, she got her first kitty, Willow, and she’s so in love...the feeling appears mutual. It’ll be hard for Natasa to part with Willow when she goes to college.
