Monae came down from Myrtle Beach to work with us for her senior pictures. Her and her family love the Charleston area and like to visit when they can. She is naturally a very happy girl that loves to smile. In almost every pose, she would default to smiling. I’m not sure if it’s conditioning, or a reaction to not knowing what to do in front of the camera, but we all know teenagers are full of a deep range of emotions. I like to work to find those elements so when she looks back at her pictures, or anyone that really knows her, they will see more of a true sense of who they know them to be and they don’t end up seeing just a bunch of cute smile pictures. Watch how this series evolves.
