Terissa was chosen as the recipient of the Bright Light Award for the Class of 2014. It was a unanimous decision by all the business owners involved. She was nominated by her mom, and will be graduating next year from East Valley High School. Her story, her courage, and the decisions she has made captured us all! When we choose a winner we have no idea what they look like, who they are, or what their personality is like. One by one as we met Terissa we were all amazed that not only did she deserve to win based on the criteria of what we were looking at, she was also as sweet as could be, and absolutely drop dead gorgeous!
As a winner of the Bright Light Recipient Terissa received a free haircut from Jenn Barlos at Design Studio 13, a gift certificate from Finders Keepers II to do some shopping prior to her session, airbrush makeup application from Shasta Hankins, and of course her session with me.
For her session Terissa decided she wanted to spend some of her time at the Latah Creek in Spokane. I love this little hidden spot… so fun and gorgeous! Going in the creek is not for the faint of heart as Terissa proved after she took a little spill into the creek, but more on that later! I accused her of just trying to cool off on the 95 degree evening! lol After that we went to another one of my favorite places. This spot offers such a unique setting for anyone that is wanting something posh, sophisticated and romantic.
