Gilliana's Sparta Tennessee Senior Session -- Scottsboro, AL Senior Photographer
When I was 17 years old and looking forward to my own high school graduation day, I wanted to grow up and be Gilliana; I just didn't know it yet. Tall and graceful, with an elegance that far surpasses her years, Gilliana is The Real Deal. She's principled -- a vegan, passionate about the environment and animals -- clever, delightfully goofy, a connoisseur of food (with an eight-year plan to achieve her dreams of culinary mastery), and she's kind. She loves her family, loves her cats, and loves a good plate of fettuccine Alfredo. If Gilliana is what the future can look forward to, we are in for a real treat.
Oh yes, and she's gorgeous.
I couldn't be more thrilled to have met and photographed this young woman, endowed with poise, intelligence, strength, and talent. I present to you The Class of 2016: put on your shades y'all -- 'cause it's bright in here.
