Maylie (Senior Photos) / by Julie Cruz

Senior photos aren't something I do, but of course this is a rare instance, since this is my niece. If you've followed Lot116 throughout the years, you might have seen photos of her from time to time. Maylie has always been my little guinea pig. When I first started out taking photos, she was my test subject many times for a few reasons. 1) She was always a natural in front of the camera. 2) She never complained. 3) She did modeling and always needed updated headshots from time to time. 4) She has been absolutely adorable (and now stunning) her entire life. I mean, really? I know I may be biased because she's my niece, but come on?? Anyway, our little Maylie is 17 now, and getting ready to graduate and head off to college. I still can't believe it. Here are just a few of my favorites that I grabbed to post. She's so easy to photograph that literally our only challenges were the wind (hence some hair holding/touching in shots - which I don't mind), and finding locations on a whim (which worked out pretty well and perfectly).....
