I've turned down senior portraits for quite some time, mostly due to the fact that the vast majority are... rather cheesy.
Enter Ashante. This girl is just super rad; visual artist, concert goer, cat lover. Basically a teenage girl after my own heart.
She was inspired by this shoot, so I was thrilled to find a similar location in Portland.
All that being said, I appreciate her for who she is, and I'd love to photograph more seniors like her in the future.
