That sweet pup! We had to bring her out for a few more shots!

I mean – THAT LIGHT! SO AMAZING!

We saved the BEST for last!!

Liz is a Doctor Who fan – so much so – that she brought the NEW Doctor’s outfit WITH her for senior photos!

This property – it’s got EVERYTHING!

“Right now, I’m a stranger to myself. There’s echoes of who I was and a sort of call towards who I am.

And I have to hold my nerve and trust all these new instincts. Shape myself towards them. I’ll be fine. In the end. Hopefully. I have to be.”

The Doctor

I won’t pretend to be a photoshop master – not even close! BUT – that sky is 100% REAL in that exact moment – and the TARDIS – that was added in. Or was it!?

EVERYTHING ABOUT THESE PHOTOS – my dream location!

Little alien creatures – see – that TARDIS isn’t photoshopped!

LIZ!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to spend the evening with you! Maybe I’ll see you next year when we make our annual REN FAIRE trip!!

Liz messaged me after talking with her yearbook advisor!

She wanted REAL senior photos – thanks so much for referring her to me Amy!

A girl and her dog – it’s a beautiful thing!

Windy? Cloudy? Sprinkles? NOT A PROBLEM!!

ALSO – CAN WE SHOOT HERE ALL THE TIME – EVERY TIME – FROM HERE ON OUT!?

THAT TREE! THAT LIGHT!!

SO GORGEOUS!!

I love white birch trees – I want to wrap this property up in my pocket and carry it around with me for ALL THE SESSIONS!

Stay tuned for the REST of Liz’s senior session – because I couldn’t STOP taking photos!!

I met Faith when Faith (a different Faith) submitted her family for BEAUTIFUL a few years ago!

Turns out – we are distantly related! Our great-grandfather’s were cousins – or something like that!

I was so happy when Kim contacted me about Faith’s senior pictures!

Faith was a trooper – the mosquitoes were AWFUL!!

I am LOVING shooting RIGHT AT SUNSET lately!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

FAITH! Thank you SO much for believing in my vision! Laying on the rocks in a parking lot – laying in a mosquito-ridden field!

I had a GREAT night hanging out with you! Whatever you do – MAKE SURE YOU LOVE IT!

We prayed for a beautiful sunset – and we got one!

Amy & I have been trying to fit in our final senior session – but with rain & work schedules & football schedules & school – you get the picture …

There was a day that Mansfield didn’t have school recently – but my boys did. It was overcast and chilly – and at a moment’s notice – they were ready!

This is Mary.

Those are her brothers.

I’m pretty sure they are her BIGGER but younger brothers!

When Amy messaged me about having senior photos for her kids – I was a bit confused. How many kids do you have that are graduating this year?!

Well – Allison is graduating & then she has a younger daughter. But Allison’s boyfriend is graduating and then John & Roch are part of the crew! Kylie and Mary too!

AMY!! You have such an amazing heart!

After our last session together – that one in the creek – Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is fighting hard and these kiddos are right by her side.

Make sure to tune in tomorrow for the rest of their session!

I’ve known Anna’s dad for a LONG time! He’s the super awesome guy that hosts TRIVIA around the region!

He messaged me about taking his daughter’s senior photos – and I was SO excited!

Anna wanted to write a reminder to herself. A good one.

REALIZE YOUR WORTH!

I LOVE THIS NEXT SERIES OF SHOTS!

DEEP MUSTARD YELLOW is one of my FAVORITE colors! ESPECIALLY in those shots!

GORGEOUS!!

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

REALIZE YOUR WORTH!! What defines you?

What people say about you? What you THINK you see in the mirror?

REALIZE YOUR WORTH!! It doesn’t lie in what people say about you. It doesn’t lie in that mirror.

ANNA!! I had a GREAT time hanging out with you! Thank you SO much for asking me to photograph this monumental time in your life!

Whatever you do – make sure you LOVE it!

OH – and REMEMBER YOUR WORTH!!
