I met Elena when she was in 2nd grade and I kind of refuse to believe that she will be a high school senior in the Fall. I grew up with her sister, Katrina, and in a lot of ways Elena is like the younger sister I never had. So this shoot was already special, and it’s no secret that she also happens to be drop dead gorgeous. Not to mention this little slice of paradise on Lake Michigan’s shoreline where we got to shoot! Congratulations, Elena! I hope you love these photos as much as I do.
