Today is an especially rainy, dreary Monday, so I want to take a step back in time to this summer and one lovely, dreamy, and drawn-out evening where the twilight seemed to last forever. This was when we met Aris at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens for her senior portrait photography session. Aris is a student at Newport High School (as was I, and my sisters) and her mom was so kind as to bid on a photography package I put up for auction to benefit Newport’s Orchestra, where my youngest sister plays the violin.
Aris told us she was photo-shy and a tomboy, but she was absolutely gorgeous in front of the camera, and having been one myself, I like tomboys the best! We had a great time wandering around the gardens as the evening wore on and on, and I love how her portraits turned out. Right now, they remind me just how wonderful a summer evening can be. Enjoy!
