Draya from Frederick is my featured senior of the week this week!
I am happy to talk about one of my senior models from the class of 2018 this week. Draya started as a senior model last year and has participated in several fun shoots with the team. She was part of our beach shoot last summer, and although it was more of a meet and greet, I did get a few cute shots of her and the team. She also was part of my homecoming shoot last fall. We spent the afternoon running around Denver and just generally having a good time. This girl sure knows how to rock a homecoming dress! As a huge perk, she also went to California with me last July. We met there with several other senior models from around the country and did several themed shoots. We did a vintage swim shoot on the beach, and although it was freezing, we powered through it and the resulting images looked like it was a nice sunny day. We also did a mermaid shoot on a different beach, different day…again it was freezing. Who knew that California would be so cold in July??? We still had fun playing with different makeup techniques and finding cool places to shoot. It was pretty funny how many of the tourists took pictures of her as well. I am pretty sure they thought she was a movie star or something. We could not leave California without doing her senior pictures as well. So, we incorporated them between the themed shoots and on our last day there. We took a bit of leisure time to check out the local shops and watch the sea lions.
Draya is planning on heading off to Fort Collins in the fall for collage. She is not 100% sure what she will be doing in the long run, but for now, she is planning on getting her pre-recs. What ever she decides to do, I am sure she will succeed. Congratulations on your graduation Draya!!!!
