Senior Sessions

Oh, friends, the last few days have been a whirlwind. A double header wedding weekend, cross-country trip to Arizona for Showit UNITED, leading a styled shoot, making so many sweet friends + then heading home for a senior session + week full of shooting. WHEW! I’m loving every second of it + I can’t wait to catch up on editing to share all of the beautiful images!

If we’re keeping it real, this blog post was supposed to be up yesterday. But real life happens + I ended up spending some time with my friends + family that I missed while I was gone-and sometimes, that’s okay!! It’s the FIRST Thursday of the entire year that I didn’t blog, so I’m going to cut myself some slack on this one 🙂

On the last morning of our trip this Wednesday, Natalie + I popped out of bed a little early, got dressed up + shot right outside the Firesky Resort before catching out flight home!! To be honest, we were both EXHAUSTED (and sick!!) and struggled to get out of bed to shoot. But we are both SO glad that we did!! These images of Natalie are some of my new favorites + I just can’t get enough of her-I am SO blessed to have such wonderful (and beautiful) best friends!

Also, to follow up on last week’s canvas giveaway, CONGRATULATIONS to Kaylee Wallace for being the winner of a free 16×24 canvas!! YAY! Thank you so much to all who entered!

Enjoy some of my favorites from our last minute-shoot in AZ!!
