Abbie | Class of 2019 | McDonough Square

High School Seniors are some of my faves! In case you didn’t know, I was a high school Spanish teacher for a few years before I went full time with my photography company. High School Seniors are just so much fun! They are so excited for the future and going through the crazy process of getting into college. They’ve also really started coming into their own by this point. Sure, they might still change, develop, and mature, but they are at their core the people they are going to be in the future and it is beautiful. Plus, girls love to play dress up no matter how old they get :)

Congratulations, Abbie! I loved getting to stroll around the McDonough square with you!

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!

Tori + Will | Engagement Session

This one is long over due, but I'm happy to finally share some images from Tori and Will's engagement session!  They decided that they wanted to go to Will's Grandmother's property where they got engaged, which made for the perfect backdrop for their photos while also holding some sentimental values.

Tori and Will were high school sweethearts and have been dating since forever.  Now they even get to work together as teachers at the same school.  When I first sat down and met with them, Will referred to their relationship as their friendship, which just made me smile.  They obviously love each other a lot, but the fact that they really are best friends and have known one another for so long makes it extra sweet that I get to be there when they finally say "I do."

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!
