Oh my goodness!! These Sweet 16 portraits turned out AMAZING in the butt cold of WI! I do have to admit, that I think its funny what happens to you physically and mentally when you turn 16. Its as if a light switch turned on to start acting more mature.
I have known this beautiful girl her whole life! I am her Aunt. I was given the privilege in being asked to take her sweet 16 photos.
Well, Lucky for Brinn her Birthday is in the freezing month of February. HAHAHAH LUCKY GIRL.... OKAY, MAYBE NOT SO MUCH!!
We geared ourselves up for the bitter cold and ventured outside. We both actually had a blast.
We stepped into DEEP parts of the snow ( and only had tennis shoes on ), laughed, and almost slipped in certain areas of my back yard. I was holding onto my camera for dear life...lol.. if only someone was videoing this Photo Shoot, lol it would have been EPIC!! LOL
Brinn was EXTREMELY brave to take her coat off and "pretend" she wasn't cold, as she modeled with perfection for her photo shoot.
This girl has matured so much in the last few years. Its crazy how fast time flies and after you blink, you see your niece in front of you in form of a woman! ( I can't imagine how her mother feels )
But, this is the age where life feels new, where you are now able to drive with out your parents, your two years away from being an adult, and you REALLY have to start thinking about LIFE!! What lies ahead for me? What am I going to go to school for? Where am I going to work? How am I going to make a difference?
This is all new to many. Maybe there are a few that have been planning and preparing for what lies ahead, but this is when life gets REAL.
Sometimes I wish life came with a Manual. But, the funny thing is, we are all different. If we were all the same, the world would be boring.
So, lets embrace the WHOLE NEW YOU, and show the world what we (YOU) can bring!!
