Anytime I get to incorporate over-the-knee suede boots, I am excited! Of course, getting to spend the day with this wonderful senior was the best part of the senior shoot you’re about to see. Alyssa is a graduate from Vandegrift High School, where she is extremely active in swimming. She’s part of club swimming, has been a four-year member of the varsity squad, and is an all-state swimmer. When she’s not in the pool, she enjoys doing yoga, seeing live music, and spending time with her dogs. Psychology and Pre-Calculus have been her favorite classes at Vandegrift, and her best high school memories include going to the football games, and creatively dressing up for the theme/spirit days! Alyssa says her personality is outgoing, funny, and sweet.
“Right now, my favorite high school trend is skirts and laid-back shirts, ankle boots and choker necklaces”, she explained, “but what I’d typically wear to school would be high-waisted shorts, simple tops, and sneakers.” We included some adorable Adidas retro styled sneakers in her shoot, paired with a flowy mini-dress for an unexpected and really fun combination. She enjoys shopping at Urban Outfitters, Free People, and American Eagle for the latest trends, and loves the style of celeb Selena Gomez. She plans to go to Texas A&M after graduation, and study nursing. “I will miss my mom doing my laundry when I go to college”, she laughs, “and of course my dogs. I love living in Austin, and getting to go downtown and see the beautiful skyline, so I will miss that as well.” Alyssa looks up to her mom for her “giving and sympathetic spirit”, and hopes to be like her one day. Traveling to Europe, and completing an IronMan competition are also pretty high on her list of goals, and in five years, she really hopes to be trading in the Texas skyline for New York City!
I have her friend Sophie to thank for referring this sweet gal, and I enjoyed every bit of our time together!
