Delayna is a Flagstaff High School Senior who wanted some edgy and urban to match her look. We decided to shoot downtown Flagstaff senior photos for her. The lighting was a dream, and Delayna inspired me to get creative during her shoot. She was a trooper, even though it was cold, and nailed it when it came to doing different poses. Despite being reserved and somewhat shy, she is so beautiful and naturally killed it in front of the camera!
Each year, we volunteer to participate in the Beauty Revived initiative to donate one senior portrait session a year to a girl who is especially deserving. Delayna was one of the seniors who applied this year and in the end, we selected her because of her unique upbringing, circumstances (and how she has made the best of them) and her talents. Read more about her on the Beauty Revived website here.
Delayna is also extremely talented, some fun facts about her are: she can play piano, sing, is part of the Humanitarian Club, participates in Student Council, and she loves classic rock, like The Beatles, KISS, Metallica, and The Doors. (A girl after my own heart!) She also does some of her own photography for fun, and you can view some of her work on her Instagram here.
She is one awesome gal and she hopes to attend a university in Hawaii! Believe in yourself and your dreams, Delayna! I wish the best for you and can’t wait to see where you will go in life. Shine on, girl!
