Fuquay-Varina senior: Rebekah

Rebekah’s dad first contacted me about shooting a senior session with her – gosh – forever ago. I think it was right around the first of the year — so I was excited to finally get to photograph her a few weeks ago. She loves springtime with all its beautiful flowers and she definitely wanted some images with at least one of her horses, so we scheduled for an April afternoon, hoping it would be warm and that the flowers would be in bloom. We couldn’t have picked a more beautiful day — it was warm and the azaleas were exploding with color.

We started the session at her house — where I met Bella, one of her horses. Now, I was warned that Bella was a little rambunctious and not prone to cooperating….but just call me the ‘horse whisperer’ because she was clearly on her best behavior. She pranced and preened for the camera — as if this were HER big day — I even caught her in what appears to be a full laugh (that picture makes me roar!).

Bella is hamming it up for the camera…

Rebekah is truly happy around her horses…

Love, love, LOVE this headshot of her — I think she favors Drew Barrymore in a lot of these photos… Rebekah is almost as big a Wolfpack fan as I am….she is NC State University bound in the fall!  On my way to her house, I passed an old barn in a field by the road (old barns really excite me!). When I mentioned it to Rebekah, she said there was a barn on her grandparents’ farm. Oh boy! Was there ever a barn there! An amazing old WHITE barn — perfect for her white outfit and the bright red balloons! This may be one of my favorite images…of. all. time.

Drew Barrymore II again…
Not only was there this great white barn at the farm, there was this amazing old gas pump…..BAZINGA! (10 points to the first reader to get that reference to one of my favorite tv shows!) It was like unexpectedly hitting the prop jackpot….

We left the farm and went to the backyard of a family friend. The azalea gardens at WRAL have nothing – hear me NOTHING – on this man’s backyard. I have never seen so many gorgeous azaleas in my life! They provided the perfect backdrop for this flower-lovin’ girl!

Hello, gorgeous sun! So nice of you to drop in on us! Another favorite!

Pretty in pink… Rebekah, you’re beautiful! Thank you for sharing your afternoon and your beauty (inside and out) with me!
