Senior Sessions

Do you ever have a shoot where you take the first 5 images…and you just KNOW it’s going to become a new favorite? That’s exactly how I felt within the first few minutes of Katie’s senior session! It was an 85 degree day, all of the flowers were in full bloom, Katie’s outfits were absolutely beautiful and it just could NOT have been better! Katie is another one of my 2017 senior spokesmodels and I just adore her. She has the sweetest personality and the kindest heart – getting to know her has been such an honor this year!

We found some brand new favorite locations of mine while we were shooting Katie’s portraits (yay!) and ended the day with the most breathtaking golden hour. There are SO many new favorites in this blog post…let me know which ones are your faves!! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your senior year, Katie!
