Meet Charlie. Oh, and Millie, too.

Charlie’s all growed up from when I first saw her (below left) and when I most recently saw her (below right), but she has all the same silly , drive, and beauty as she’s ever had.

Now, she’s graduating, and looking every bit the asskicking steampunk princess with her amazing dress and fire engine red hair.

Charlie’s mum Melody (bestie to friend Julie) asked me to shoot Charlie’s grad and, on the day it was planned, it rained. So, we used our rain plan location, and things worked out majestically.

The Atrium is a wonderful shooting location, complete with gorgeous lighting, removable trees, and a great variety of backgrounds, all protected from the rain.

Even the tiny not-room between the dual sliding doors was a backdrop for us.

The detail of everything about Charlie was spectacular, and she was a pleasure to shoot.
