I was so excited when Lucero and her mom asked me to do her senior portraits. This girl is gorgeous and was sooooo much fun to work with. She’s a senior this year at Saint Andrew’s high school in Ridgeland.
When I asked her where she wanted to shoot, she mentioned her home and the family restaurant, Margarita’s. We had her session scheduled for a Saturday evening. When we got to Margarita’s on County Line Road, I was so nervous. The place was busy, and I had a million thoughts running through my head. Luckily, I managed to work in my lights around tables and customers and shoot in Lucero’s favorite spots where she spent a lot of time as a child after school while her parents worked. I love that these images and locations have so much meaning to her and her family.
