Claire '19

Claire is a special part of our 2019 team, as she was nominated by peers to receive our first ever scholarship for her Senior Experience.  

I asked her to put into her own words what Real Beauty is to her and how this experience contributed to her feelings.

“Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes me to lose my hair. I am completely healthy, I simply don’t have any hair. Most people think that hair is one of the main aspects of a girl that defines her beauty. I am beyond blessed for this opportunity with studio 116 because I get to show people that beauty isn’t necessarily defined in one way. Everybody has their own unique features, varying from hair color (if you have it ;), to size, to skin color. I’m extremely excited to be in front of the camera and to have my distinctive features captured!”

One Day I Will

At Studio 116, we love making every session unique to each client.  But, we also love offering this tradition for everyone!  

We often joke that it's the "cheesiest" thing we do during your session, because we don't use a lot of props.  But this shot remains one of our favorites, as well as our clients & parents.  

We prompt our client to finish the sentence, "One Day I Will..."  We ask each of our seniors to go with what comes to mind first.  It can be big or small, silly or serious, but must be true to who they are.  We encourage them to think about something that will remind them of who they were at this time in their lives when they look back on these images in years to come.  

And, with that, we get our tradition of ONE DAY I WILL....

We absolutely LOVE every one of these responses and how unique they are to our special and unique clients.  

Here's to all of our 2018 Graduates - we can't wait to watch your days ahead!  

Many blessings,

The Studio 116 Team
