I've known Carlie since she was a small, small girl. I've seen her grow up from a distance, but I don't think I've ever gotten to spend as much time with her as I did last Saturday when we were taking her senior pictures. As I suspected, she's lovely, and hanging out with her and her mom was an awfully pleasant way to spend a Saturday evening.
Carlie and her mom chose the location, and I think the outdoor setting of the North Carolina Arboretum perfectly reflected her love of the outdoors. Any girl who wears her Chacos for her senior pictures is a girl who's ready to go on a hike! I loved her outfit choices and her casual attitude--she made it so fun to experiment with poses and locations.
Thanks for letting me take your pictures, Carlie! I can't wait to see what the next few years hold for you.
