Ansley Carr is one of those girls who is going somewhere. I first met her several years ago, when she joined Chuck Williams Photography as one of our Teen Model Reps.
I'll never forget my first impression of her - kind, gentle, caring, intelligent, and friendly. The kind of girl you want your daughter to grow up to be like.
Ansley is a Class of 2018 graduating Senior from The Walker School where this year, she served as President of the Student Activities Union and as President of the Fellowship of Christian Students, two organizations in which she was involved all four years at The Walker School.
She also cheered at The Walker School, and this year was Captain of the Varsity Cheerleading Team. In grades 9-11, she ran track.
Outside of school, Ansley has danced competitively for years, a passion she plans to pursue in the future. She has also been very involved in her church youth group and volunteers with TOP Soccer.
After graduation, Ansley plans to attend the University Of Alabama, where she will double major in dance and business in the honors college.
This summer she is planning to have a lot of fun exploring Atlanta (while she still lives here), will most probably visit family in Michigan, and hopes to go on a beach trip to Florida.
When I asked Ansley what she would miss the most about going away to school, she said "I will definitely miss my Mom the most when I go away to college. It has always been just the two of us, so leaving will be super different for us both. I will also really miss all of my friends from school, church and dance because I have known most of them since I was little."
While leaving Atlanta will be difficult, she is so excited for the next chapter in her life and can't wait to begin the next four years at college.
Ansley did a Teen session with us in the fall as a Teen Rep and then did a couple of sessions with us as a Senior. As a rep, she has also done several group photo sessions with us as well.
Ansley is always so much fun to work with and everyone who meets her, adores her. We did her last big, individual session in downtown Atlanta. She wanted a city look, complete with mural walls and also wanted to incorporate dance into her Atlanta session.
When I asked Ansley what she would tell others about having senior pictures done at Chuck Williams Photography she said "I would tell others to have some ideas for their pictures and to really be true to themselves, let loose, and have fun!!"
And fun is exactly what we had when we did Ansley's Senior Pictures. We had a blast going all through Atlanta and choosing fun places to photograph her.
Getting to know Ansley and her mom has been such a blessing. I can't wait to see her blossom and grow even more, as she begin this next chapter of her life.
