Oh to be young again! When I was a senior in high school senior photos consisted of going to a studio, and taking some uber boring shots that may or may not include you leaning on a ladder or sitting next to a “class of XXX” sign. Thankfully, somewhere in the last 30 years these high schoolers (and their parents!) have gotten a lot hipper and senior photos are now more gorgeous than ever. Take this amazing young lady, Emily…she is simply stunning, and smart. Oh my gosh is she smart! And creative, I follow her on Instagram because, well, her #instapics are amazeballs. Emily was referred to my by her cousin, who’s family I’ve photographed for a few years now, and we met for this beautiful senior session at Faust Park one evening.
Senior sessions aren’t something I normally do (but you already knew that cause you like to come here and look at all the cute babies), but…OMG. I LOVE doing senior sessions! Emily was so easy going, and was a straight pro at looking gorgeous. Emily exuded a boho, chic, too cool for you vibe and she rocks the smoldering stare. Here are a few of my faves from her session. Enjoy!
If you are interested in booking a session for your soon to be senior, give me a holler because I am itching to get my hands on more of these amazing young people about to take on the world!
