When I was a little girl one of my favorite movies was the 1982 classic Savannah Smiles. I can vividly recall watching it on our old television, which to-date seems prehistoric. There was something about the main character Savannah that I loved. As I waited outside of the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum that movie played in my head. As always, I was excited to photograph another class of 2020 senior. This time my meeting was with none other than Wayland High School senior, Savannah.
Let me share a few things about Savannah. Bright & bubbly Savannah was outgoing and quick to introduce herself upon arrival. I absolutely loved her outgoing personality combined with a level on comfort and confidence as we began our session. There was one thing that I was absolutely certain about, and it was Savannah’s makeup ability, which was flawless. We roamed the streets of downtown Grand Rapids taking in some of my favorite shooting locations. During that time I was able to learn a bit more about Savannah and her future plans.
While the path to her goal was still in the fine tuning stage, Savannah shared her future plan of becoming a pilot. Between discussing the present, the future and shouting prompts we shared some great laughs. Our session flowed flawlessly & in no time had come to an end. As I said farewell to Savannah I was reminded of that old movie classic. Savannah, much like the character was a girl full of life, energy, optimism & personality.
