Oh, sweet summer time. When you live in the Midwest, you grow to appreciate those short, glorious months! Today’s featured session from Alana Rae Photography is quintessentially summer. The colors, the wardrobe and the light capture everything about this beautiful season!

Alana describes the session by adding, “Aliza is a gorgeous, I mean GORGEOUS young lady! Being only 15, she is a very shy girl. Getting her makeup done and being in front of my camera… it gave her so much confidence that it beamed right through her!

Aliza skipped on having a quinceñera (the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday) so her mother decided to gift her a full glam makeup appointment with a local makeup artist and a session with me. We had the amazing chance in using a private property that looked over the Rio Grande River. It was such a beautiful sight! Other locations I used were a green area with pretty pink flowers to make her blue top pop and used a downtown area for her more stylish outfit. She had amazing jewelry on and she worked that hat as well!”
