Senior Session: Maya

Friends! Hello!! I am soooo long overdue for an update and a blog post! My day job has been quite incredibly busy these days and I am managing as best as I can to photograph friends, families, and couples on the weekends as well as finishing the planning and prep for my own wedding in 3 short weeks! It just seems like there is never enough time…a cliche that’s held pretty true these last few days. I let sleep slip a bit this week and I paid the big price by the time Friday came around. I slept from 8:30pm last night and was wide awake by 7am this morning. I definitely feel a lot better…

With all that said, let me introduce you to Maya! A beautiful senior from Tabb High School in Yorktown. Maya, her family, and I go a couple years back. Her mother was my sprint coach for the track team while I was in high school! And her sister and I raced together on the same 4x400m team. We had a lot of fun catching up to do during her session. Maya has come into her own this year and proven herself as an extremely talented triple jumper and track star! She accepted a scholarship to Clemson and will start training with the tigers this summer. She is carrying her mother’s legacy, as she also competed for Clemson throughout college! I still remember the day when Maya was just a young middle schooler telling me how “track was not going to be her thing”. Times changed a bit 🙂 I’m so proud of her and all her accomplishments and was happy to pull a couple of beaming smiles out during her senior session!

Congratulations Maya and best of luck this summer and school year!
