The funny thing about spring in Washington MO, is that it is crazy unpredictable. That makes my job a little tricky sometimes, as a photographer. When Taylor & I first talked about her Senior Portraits, we planned a beautiful session, among blooming flowers, in a pretty field. However, Mother Nature had other plans. You know that old saying, when life gives you lemons? Well, we did some quick thinking & the outcome was adorable, sassy & unique!
I messaged the owners of this adorable new ice cream joint in Washington. Maybe you've heard of it, it's all the rage right now. Main Street Creamery was so accommodating. We headed there first, but due to their HUGE popularity, the lines were super long. Taylor's aunt held our place while we ran outside for some adorable downtown shots. (I mean RAN, brrrr it was cold)
When we couldn't handle the cold/wind anymore, we headed back to the creamery. Taylor wanted the cotton candy shake & let me tell you, that thing looked DELICIOUS. (I'm on a diet & can't have any, boooo) She turned up the sass 100 degrees. It was so much fun!
Isn't she the cutest! We figured we could try to handle a bit more of the cold, so we headed back out. Would you believe me if I told you it started flurrying? On April 15th! Are you kidding me? Anyway, Taylor was a complete trooper. We wandered all along the river front, to find the cutest hidden gems. Thanks Taylor for powering through, and thank you Main Street Creamery for being awesome!
