I love a good challenge. Anything that forces me to problem-solve or find a solution makes me excited. Upon arriving to Phipp's for Elena's session, we encountered lots of traffic and nightmarish parking. Why? Because we had unknowingly chosen to photograph Elena on Phipp's "free day," where Phipp's gave complimentary admission to anyone who walked through their doors. The place was packed, for good reason. But I had my challenge, and Elena was willing to face it with me. We avoided pedestrians, spectators, and grazers, and came up with some beautiful photos for her senior photo session.

Fun fact: Elena won free Moe's burritos for an entire year (one per week), starting just a couple of weeks ago. Congratulations on your last year of high school and your many burritos to come! ;)
