I've been thinking a lot about being average, which is really just the lack of awareness when making decisions about what you are going to do with your day/month/year/life. It's easy to conform, but it's more fun to defy this intrinsic desire that we have. Usually, the people we admire the most are those that somehow defy the standards of average.  I am so thrilled that Elise wanted senior portraits that went beyond the average look of a senior portrait!  We explored Hidden Fall's, and she bravely modeled despite the frigid air, wearing her gorgeous choir dress while standing atop a pile of rocks overlooking the Mississippi.  

On a side note, listening to Oh Wonder while editing Elise's autumn senior session was such a great choice...

...Also, I am drooling over this swimsuit right now for my upcoming trip to Mexico (where I will be shooting a wedding!!), thoughts?
