When I met up with Leia and her mom to talk about taking her senior pictures, I knew we were going to get along. First off, I’m a massive Star Wars fan, so just knowing that there’s someone out there named Leia was pretty awesome in itself (and yes, she is named after the movie character). She has a contagious smile, a great attitude, and is open to try just about anything. Those traits make for a perfect storm of amazingness when it comes to a person for me to photograph. Anyone who’s willing and enthusiastic to take some photos inside a bar that smells like sweat and stale beer, just to get some great shots is pretty much my favorite.
