One of my favorite things about being a photographer is being able to photograph special events and milestones! Aniya is turning 13 (Happy Birthday!!)! So naturally, we had to do a photo shoot to celebrate the coming of age!
She is a very creative person, and requested that we do pictures outside of the K-12 art building in Downtown Dayton. I drive past there nearly every day, and have never taken a second look at the building. However, it made for a gorgeous and fun backdrop! The paintings were amazing, and there were some pretty cool sculptures there as well.
Aniya was a super trooper in braving the 30-degree weather with only a light jacket and hat on to keep her warm. But, it was a very stylish outfit, indeed! And, you gotta love those boots!
