when it’s everything // Sasha

May 2, 2017

There is something so special about this gorgeous high school senior. I actually can’t put my finger on it, which means it’s probably e v e r y t h i n g.

She is so talented, so full of love + compassion, she is a hard worker, an extraordinary singer, smart, a beautiful woman and an even more beautiful daughter and sister. I especially loved watching her interact with her parents and brother on this shoot. Some kids this age are sassy, defiant or embarrassed.

Not Sasha.

She is overflowing with kindness and consideration, and the privilege is truly mine every time I get to photograph this stunning lady. She really is e v e r y t h i n g.

We spent an evening at Singapore’s Botanic Gardens, inside the Orchid Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has been on my bucket list to shoot a session at these exquisite gardens, and I could not be happier to have done this location with Sasha! She took all the direction and made it her own, which is every photographer’s dream. The light danced between the leaves, the orchids made the garden smell lovely and we were all blown away by the unique and rare plants around us. The Orchid Gardens have a way of making me think, “Do I really live here?!” 2017-05-02_0003.jpg

When we arrived at the gardens, it was overcast (I brought an umbrella!) and crowded. but the minute we stepped into the Orchid Garden, the sun poked out and the crowds melted away. Not sure how it happened, but was a perfect evening.

Sasha is a warrior! She practices Muay Thai and broke her collarbone last year. But she is back at it already! Strong girl.

We had so much fun playing with the B+W house in the gardens.

Her new graduation dress was the perfect pop of blue in the gorgeous jungle of green.
