Chelsea is striking, not just because she has beautiful auburn hair and stands a foot taller than me. She is both cheerful and has a quiet determination. The majority of my graduates were interested in having their photos taken at the lion shrine. However, only Chelsea persevered the 90 minutes wait time to get her photos with Nittany. Standing in a long line and having loads of time to kill, you get a lot of bonding opportunities. Chelsea and I started discussing posing, the best light for photography, and moved onto conversations about her post-PSU plans. She will be one amazing occupational therapist!
Sometimes, it still astonishes me how well you get to know one another after a photo session. I could sense that Chelsea is very personable and intentional in her relationships. This makes Chelsea highly valued and influential among her friends. I have direct evidence of this: Chelsea referred three booking friends following her session. Can we all say dream client? 🙂
Chelsea, thank you so much for trusting me to capture such an important milestone in your life. Although your Penn State experience has been amazing, I love your attitude and belief that “the best is yet to come”. Cheers to that beautiful journey ahead!!
