I first met Remington almost two years ago at the Crossfit gym I go to! I was BLOWN away by how polite and sweet she was, and how easy she was to talk to! I had NO idea she was only 15 years old because of the way she acted and how respectful she was! When I asked her what her name was, I died. I’m sure I totally freaked her out because I was obsessed with her name!! I had just had a miscarriage, so babies were on my mind. I instantly wanted to name my next baby, if it was a girl, Remington. (Although I ended up getting pregnant with Grayson shortly after haha!) I’m still determined to have a girl next and name her Remington.
When Remington asked me to take her senior pictures I was SO EXCITED!! Her mom, Tonya, and I were texting and talking all about ideas and locations for her shoot! It made me so happy seeing how excited her mom was! It made me want to have that kind of love and excitement for my own kids.
The shoot was a blast! Remington shared her concerns with how she felt like she was awkward in front of the camera, but HOLY COW she was a natural!! We ended up getting SO many beautiful natural, candid shots of her! My favorites are the ones of her laughing, mostly because I know behind the scenes her mom was shouting all of these fun poses and ideas, totally cracking us up!!
Speaking of Tonya, this lady is the best mom ever! Seriously. When I grow up I want to be Tonya. Hands down. She had brought props, outfits, and even offered to have me stand on her back to get a good shot haha! She carried Remington on her back out of the creek since she didn’t have shoes on, and if that isn’t a perfect example of motherhood, I don’t know what is! The love Tonya has for Remington shows through her actions and the way she looks, laughs, and smiles with her daughter. It was an absolute treat spending time with them!
Remington it is an absolute honor to know you and be your “old mom” friend! I love seeing you every day at the gym, and I can’t wait to see the amazing things you will do!
Here are some of my favorites from her senior session:
