Each year I get the honor of working with a team of fantastic young ladies on my Model Team.
Last night we had an amazing day filled with adventure, bonding, lots of laughter and a few extremely large fish!
It’s such a pleasure to get to know each of these young ladies and a privilege to be part of this exciting time in their lives.
I can’t wait to see what the year ahead brings!

This is only the beginning!

I just love it when I get to do senior portraits for young people I know!
I’ve known Maddie and her family for over 8 years and had the privilege of watching her grow up.
So, this session was very special as her momma and I just watched in awe at what a beautiful young lady she has become
…even more beautiful inside than out….if you can believe that!!!

Maddie is a no frills kind of natural beauty…that girl that doesn’t need to try but always looks great
and her portraits reflected that.  She is a nature and animal lover, so we immersed ourselves in natural settings.
Maddie did a great job of coordinating her outfits so they all look amazing together.

It’s finally (almost) here… GRADUATION! Class of 2017 is heading out, and we want to help them do it in style.
Before you all eat your hearts out at your graduation parties, you’ll want to proudly walk across the stage!

On the day of your graduation ceremony, you will be wearing your cap and gown-of course.
What will you wear under it though? It is fairly common for seniors to wear white or light colored dressier clothes.
This means NO JEANS. That’s right, no leggings either (unless they are fancy and your top covers your bottom).
The reason many seniors dress in white is because it represents a clean slate or new beginning.

Some options we handpicked for you include dresses, blouses, skirts, and nice pants.
Take a look at these images of clothes from
lulus.com and Free People for inspiration.
Feel free to head over to our
Pinterest page for other ideas as well.

Now, it’s time to partay! In style of course.
As it will be early summer for most of us, sun dresses are going to be über popular.
They will provide comfort in any heat and serve as a clean and cute outfit.
If you choose to wear one of these dresses, or if not, do NOT forget to accessorize.
Simple necklaces or bangle bracelets will amp up any outfit.

Here our some of our favorite dresses and accessories from our favorite places to shop: lulus.com and Free People.
Of course, if you are not feeling so inspired, our
pinterest boards can help!

I’m in LOVE with this late summer senior portrait session with Serena!
I just love her simple vintage/boho style and her gorgeous natural hair and make up (HMUA: Brittany Kinney Beautē).

This session shows you a good variety of urban and natural settings and how each outfit fit its’ location perfectly.
These are all things we go over when planning your perfect senior session!
