Senior Sessions

Katie’s senior session last week was so much fun for SO many reasons! She is another one of my insanely gorgeous and incredibly talented spokesmodels and I was looking so forward to her shoot!! She told me a few weeks ago that she was covering a pair of pointe shoes in Swarovski crystals for her dance portraits…talk about making me excited!! (Just WAIT until you see those photos at the end!)

We start Katie’s session at one of my favorite beach locations (where she ROCKED a maxi dress from Peacaloo Boutique!) and then headed to a gorgeous wildflower field before finishing up at the train station for golden hour! The last set of dance images have definitely become new favorites!!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Katie’s session and leave her some love!!!
