Class of 2017 | Senior Portraits | Georgia + Illinois

Being a Senior, whether in high school or college, is such an exciting time in a person's life.  I was able to photograph a few of my favorite seniors this year and now it's graduation time!

Congratulations to all of you out there who have studied and worked hard and now get to walk and now finally get to celebrate this great achievement! 

First up on the list is sweet Camille!  This lady is not only beautiful but also incredibly intelligent.  She'll be graduating at the end of the month from Union Grove High School, my alma mater. Go Wolverines!  For her session, we wandered around the McDonough Square and then went to over to the church (also where I grew up) where she's spent so much of her time learning about the Lord.  I love that she wanted to incorporate that into her session as it holds such a special place in her heart.

Next up, Chase!  I have some extended family in Illinois that I went to visit last fall.  One of the reasons was so that I could take some senior portraits for my cousin's children!  It was harvest time and they live in a farming community so I got to learn lots about farming corn and meet all of their animals, plus some other fun stuff.  I think they definitely had fun showing this city girl about farm life. Chase also does work with the fire department and he got dressed in his uniform so we could take some photos.  I also may or may not have made him pretend to save a kitten from a tree.

Last, but certainly not least, Makayla!  This lady is certainly a busy one.  She is also super smart, but also a talented volleyball player and I happened to come on tournament weekend which meant snagging photos whenever we had a spare moment.  Makayla loves her horse so we also got a few of her riding around their property!

Cailin | Senior Portraits

I got to spend the morning with Cailin back in August for her Senior Portraits.  This young lady is so sweet and so beautiful! I loved spending time with her and can't wait to hear about all that she goes on to do with her bright future.  Congratulations Cailin!

University of Memphis Grad | Colt Von Lanken | Personal

Today is my big brother's 28th birthday! Last time I got to see him, we were celebrating his graduation from the University of Memphis where he graduated with his MBA as a FedEx Scholar.  I'm so proud of him and his accomplishments.  

Congratulations and Happy Birthday,Colt!

Lauren | University of West Georgia Grad School Graduate

This girl.  So proud of her and all of her accomplishments as she graduates this month from the University of West Georgia with her Master's in Speech and Language Pathology.  I know she will be a great SLP and has worked hard for this degree - not only with her studies, but through her own health trials along the way.  

I love her positivity and encouragement and it was a privilege to capture some photos of her and one of her classmates to commemorate this time in her life.  Congratulations Lauren!  Proud of you!

Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
— Romans 5: 3-5
