It’s a joy of mine to meet and work with people like Erica. She’s a smart woman with the most wonderful character, and we such a fun time in her session! She’s graduating from Roncalli High School in Aberdeen, South Dakota, and she’s planning on continuing her schooling for a nursing degree. Her mother and I go way back, all the way back to our college days. We were both traveling respiratory therapists at the same hospital, and have been great friends ever since. Erica and her mom have been looking forward to their trip to Cali for a while, and loved being tourists again, seeing the sights and going to a P!nk concert (jealous!). Erica loves the area out here, and we wanted to capture her in her favorite spots for her senior session.
Since she hails from a landlocked state, she had to visit the beach, so we hit Pismo for the pier, and then on to Montana de Oro for the beautiful rocky shores. She seemed to feel right at home with her feet in the sand, breathing in the salty air, and she made it so easy to capture her unique spirit in her senior pictures. She has a marvelous sense of humor, which made for lots of laughs as we spent some time in the glorious California sun. She shares her mother’s selfless spirit, and is passionate about caring for others. She chose nursing for her career because she wants to make a difference in the lives of others, and I think it’s the perfect fit for her. Her mother’s set a great example for her, being Erica’s personal hero, and remains to be an inspiration to her today!
I loved the outfits that Erica wore to her session. She brought a variety with her, from jeans with a lovely striped top and cardigan, to an elegantly gorgeous dress that made her shine wonderfully against the watery horizon of the beach. It was so fun just chatting with her, and getting to know the inner beauty that matched her stellar looks. In her high school, she loves to play volleyball, and is a member of the National Honor Society. Becoming a member was one of her favorite memories from her time in there, and rightly so; it’s an incredible achievement!
I know that’s only one of the many great things that Erica has done and will do in her life. The way she lives her life is a testament to it, and I wish her all the best in this next stage of life. Congrats Erica!
