Rachel’s visiting NY for a week to enjoy a family vacation.. oh, and the wedding of her brother (who’s wedding I’m photographing). She needs senior portraits.. wants something awesome.. so she and her mom drove up from their vacation cottage in Geneva, NY to meet with me. We had a blast wading in the creek (while the 4 other photographers there didn’t dare touch the water) and doing generally awesome and unique photographic ninja tricks, above and beyond what your typical studio offers. We go all out at awelshphotography.com!
We finished our session with Rachel showing off her madcrazy cheerleading skills. She is part of a national-champion-winning competitive cheer team (i.e. the kind you see on ESPN2), the Maryland Twisters F5. Some impressive moves indeed– and it’s not every day you can claim you’re the national champ at something!
Rachel had a hard time being serious
We then waded out into the creek to get the best waterfall photos possible
She had fun trying to splash me
For 2012, the F5 Twisters got new uniforms, ones that don’t show the midriff. Rachel was proud to show it off.
She was doing backflips like nobody’s business.
Yes, Rachel is flippin’ awesome at this sport (pun intended)
Thanks for a fun and creative shoot, Rachel! She’ll probably end up in some of Lalli and Eddie’s wedding photos in a few days!
