A few days before the planned shoot, I was sitting there thinking about what would make this photo shoot special? We had already had a beautiful white horse in flowers, a 16 year old playing the guitar and singing about Pay Day candy bars, and a bunch of little kids with graffiti at The Maze.
How do you top any of those??
And then it hit me...we needed ACE!! The ULM Warhawk mascot. Duhhhhhhh
I messaged Lisa and asked her if she had any idea how to get him and what our plans were. She said she would see what she could do. I really had no idea if he would be able to come or not. I was so pumped to see her face when she pulled up promptly to our shoot at 6:30. She hopped out of her car and popped her trunk and there was the ACE costume.
Then, two college guys pull up and inform me they are there to "be Ace" for the shoot. The costume is pretty hot, so the plan was to take turns. They both laughed and informed me that this was something they would cross off their bucket list. I hit the Jackpot!! Brett Lambert is from Slidell, LA and was on Prep Staff this year. His friend Randy DeArmond was from Mandeville, LA. Both guys are seniors and in Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity.
Then, we were lucky enough that the stadium was open and we could get on the turf field. AND...while we were there, the ULM band was practicing so it was like we were getting our own private concert.
The models for the shoot couldn't of been any better. First off, we had 8 year old Posey Clark.

The lighting behind her blonde hair made for some gorgeous shots.
And then in our old school Indian tee
