I can’t believe so many months have passed since this gorgeous fall day!
I love shooting in the fall for so many reasons –
the air is crisp, the colors are gorgeous, and the golden light is like nothing else.
Deanna contacted me about doing her senior photos and I could not have been more honored!
Senior sessions are seriously some of my favorites.
They really give me the opportunity to channel my inner Tyra Banks (ha!) ;]
Deanna is a gorgeous girl and every shot came out beautifully thanks to her stunning eyes and smile (and may I just compliment that perfect bone structure?!)
Deanna, thank you so much for choosing me to be the one to capture such a special time in your life!
High school for you is a soon to be distant memory and you have the whole world in front of you –
Enjoy every minute and every experience!
I have actually known Sam for many years. He and my brother Andrew have grown up together (we were even practically neighbors!) so seeing Sam at my parents’ house has never been out of the ordinary. Although I haven’t lived at home for many years, I still feel like I got to watch Andrew and his friends grow up. Sam is no exception. Where does the time go?! All the more reason to have your family photographed and do it often, people.
Sam, you have gone from being a fantastic kid to being an even more fantastic guy. You are thoughtful and polite and all around a great guy to be around. I was so honored that you asked me to be the one to take your senior photos!
For anyone who is wondering, we did this shoot at Newcastle Commons on Labor Day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. Sam, his mom Janet, and I had a great time walking around and looking for different types of backgrounds. While we were on the beach, Sam and Janet told me that going to the beach and searching for sea glass together has been a big part of their lives. How fitting that Sam ended up finding some sea glass as we were discussing it!
Okay, enough rambling from me. Enjoy:
Oh my goodness – where to begin?! Okay – let me explain:
Whitley has been one of my best friends in the world for… basically forever. Keli is Whitley’s sister. Their family and my family are dear friends. Got it?
It is absolutely incredible to me that these pictures ARE EVEN Keli. Holy cow – where did the time go?! She has turned into such beautiful woman with a personality to match. She is leaving in just a few short weeks and heading to college. WHAT?!?! I still can’t believe it.
However – despite my denial in her obvious growing up – I was honored to snap a few pictures for her before she leaves. We literally did these in ten minutes. In her back yard. I’m pretty pleased with the results :]
This one is possibly my favorite:
This is Shirley. Keli’s rescue baby <3
These two are SO her – love it –
Sisters. I forced Whitley to humor me by letting me take this.
Would you believe that this girl doesn’t have on a stitch of makeup?! Yeah – glad I can see where my self esteem issues could have stemmed from ;]
