Meeting with Alicia for her senior photos at Cheyenne Canyon by the natural center was so much fun, and I’m not just saying that. Alicia herself was funny, kind and liked to laugh. I really enjoyed talking with her about her goals of wanting to do something with counseling and when she put on her second outfit (see pictures below), we also bonded on our mutual love for Harry Potter! She was absolutely amazing to work with, and to watch her go from spot to spot during her session with confidence was really cool to be a part of.
I loved her outfit choices because they were completely her. When students ask what they should wear, quite honestly, I want them to feel comfortable with who they are and what they are wearing. Really it should represent them in some way. Sometimes it’s fun to do session when students are completely dressed up and different from what they normally wear, but I loved how Alicia strolled up to her session in her sweatshirt and declared that she wore it because that is what most people are going to remember her wearing. I love that! Wishing her all the best in all of her future endeavors.
