I am totally obsessed with this session.
I don't get to photograph seniors often because most people come to me for family and children sessions, but when I do, it's always a treat. Don't get me wrong, I love working with young families. But seniors follow instructions quite a bit easier than a two year old, and this leaves a little extra time for being more creative with poses and outfit changes. I love getting to know the seniors I photograph: what inspires them, what do they want to do after high school, what do they enjoy doing now? It is so awesome to know that they are embarking on and crafting the basis of their adulthood, excited for the future and all it holds. It's amazing to think about all that could happen to them in the next 10 years: college, travel, marriage, babies, career, inventions, concepts, and more. This could all happen in this tiny space of time.
I just know Brooklyn is going to be awesome over the next 10 years, because she's awesome now, and her family is awesome too. She is probably the most laid-back senior I've ever worked with, and she has a genuine kindness, a sparkle in her smile. Brooklyn was a very natural model and made it all so easy, and her dad was there to support her. In fact, her dad is probably the most involved father I've ever seen at a session: carrying her things, suggesting outfits and accessories, fixing her hair, making her laugh. Parents know best what their kids really look like, what a natural smile looks like, or how their hair normally falls. I had a blast with this session, and it was fun to edit, too! Best wishes on your future, Brooklyn!
If you are interested in a senior session, I am not taking any more sessions for 2016, but I will be happy to work with you in the spring. I suggest booking early for a late April or early May date.

I may be a little biased with this session, but it's one of my favorites. I enjoy seeing the love this family really has for each other. I love that they have so much fun together. Although I treasure my children and younger family sessions, it was a fun change of pace to photograph older siblings and their parents.
Of course, this is my aunt, uncle and cousins, but I would have adored this session even if it didn't include my own family.
I took both of my cousins' senior sessions a few years ago, and I've taken some impromptu family photos, but we've never done a real family photo session together. The day of the session, there was rain. And storms. And a tornado warning. But we pushed through it all, and my aunt even found an awesome new location for me. I had such a blast with this session, and we ended up with absolutely beautiful weather.
I'm so thrilled at how this session ended up, and I hope they love them too! :)
How is it possible that Miss E is 2 years old already?! I remember her mama being so excited for her to arrive, picking out the perfect name, and planning her beautiful nursery. Evelyn is so cute and fun, and isn't she just one of the most beautiful girls you've ever seen?? I love this family so much, partially because I think they remind me of my own a little. It was a warm day, but you can't tell because they all did super fantastic and they look awesome! We had a great time playing hide-and-seek in the pine trees and running and running and running! ;) Happy belated birthday, Miss Evelyn! You rocked your 2nd birthday session.
