Happy Birthday, Maya!

What an honor that Shauna and Phillip hired me to photograph their stunning daughter so many times. As you can see, I have been photographing Maya since she was 9 years old. I can hardly believe she just turned 21!

Maya is not only gorgeous, she’s one of the kindest people I know. Let’s offer Maya a joyous welcome into adulthood.  Below are a few portraits of her from over the years. 

August 2005, Age 9 (almost 10)

Maya was loving her first inklings of womanhood. She threw the silk rose petals into the air herself, then quickly brought her arm down to hide the movement and heighten the mystery.

September 2007, Age 12

This portrait of Maya as Audrey Hepburn was captured at her ‘Come as Your Favorite Character’ photoshoot party for her 12th birthday.  The other girls were amazing, too, and we created some captivating portraits.

September 2012, Age 17
 

This is from Maya's High School Senior Portrait session. Her kindness really shines though here, doesn’t it?

In this portrait session, we were building her modeling portfolio. Amazing grace.
