Meet Christiana! Christiana is a senior at C Milton Wright. She's a member of National Honor Society, Math Honor Society, Science Honor Society, Senior Class Council, and works as a peer mentor... clearly she is a smart girl. In addition to having a crazy busy school schedule, she also dances at Rage Box Dance Center where she is a part of the Noise Tap Company, Boxed Fresh Hip Hop Crew, and the preparatory program. In her (very little) free time, Christiana loves baking and collecting vintage records.
Christiana wanted to incorporate her love of fashion and music into her senior session and she really wanted an urban vibe but wanted to stay closer to home since her weekday schedule is super busy. Christiana's brother, Evan, was one of DOP's first seniors almost 3 years ago and his session was done on Main street in Bel Air, MD. Des loves shooting on Main Street and knew she could get the urban vibe Christiana wanted, but she didn't want to duplicate Christiana's brother's shoot, so she hit up some of her secret locations and even the new vinyl record store (REB Records) to infuse Christiana's love of music into her session.
Christiana also wanted her boyfriend to tag along for the shoot, and this allowed for so many fun, candid and carefree snaps!
Christiana opted for DOP's most popular collection - the one with three outfits... and she certainly didn't disappoint with these killer outfit choices!
Here are the three looks she put together:
Let's see these amazing looks put to work! Here is Christiana's senior session gallery, enjoy!
Here's what Christiana had to say about her senior session experience:
"For my senior pictures I wanted a model-like vibe, and Des came to the shoot ready with all kinds of posing inspiration. She had even found a record shop to take pictures in because she knows I love music. Desiree was 100% down when I had asked her if I could include my boyfriend in my senior pictures, and I couldn't be happier with my final photos. Des is fantastic at making your pictures reflect who YOU are."
Color or black & white?
Christiana's love of music and fashion truly shined through in her senior session! She is still deciding what university she'd like to attend next fall, but plans on double majoring in dance and exercise science, or biology. I can't wait to see what amazing things she will accomplish!
