I had so much fun with Miss A. and her aunt! It is refreshing to work with someone who is down for anything, throws out her own ideas, and will try anything I ask of her (within reason, of course). She is gorgeous, funny, and she’s smart. She was even accepted into the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts (ASMSA), an exemplary high school rated one of the top ten in the nation in 2014. She’s got everything going for her. She can give some killer looks, too. For her session, we headed to Downtown Fort Smith. We began at her aunt’s place of business, Vogue Aesthetics, to capture some with it’s vintage charm. Then, we made our way around the area to shoot with some cool murals painted by The Unexpected, in some cool alleyways, and on top of a parking garage. But I can’t forget the most exciting part! We came across a cool cobblestone road that had a random arched stairway along the sidewalk, so we had to stop to get some shots. Since it is a seldom used road, we were out in the middle of it. Then we spotted a patrol vehicle headed our way. We all exchanged glances.
You always hear all those cool stories on t.v. or the radio about police officers getting called in to settle down “rowdy” youth only for the police officers to show up and join them in their basketball game.
Well, that’s kind of what happened to us. I don’t think anyone called him. I think he was just out patrolling and saw us. But he was so easygoing, he played along with us and pretended to arrest our senior girl AND he let me take pictures of it. It is definitely an experience this senior won’t soon forget. I really enjoyed our time together, Miss A.! I can’t wait to see what your future holds for you!
