I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful senior named Rachel. I had such a great time getting to know her and having lots of fun chats with her and her mother. Senior sessions are always exciting for me because I love to think about the possibilities these young adults have. Such an exciting time in their lives.
I absolutely loved Rachel’s style. I always try to tell my clients to make sure to dress the way you do and show off your personality. So when she came prepared with hats, fun colors, and a shirt with leopards on it…Continue Reading >
When we first met this past winter snowmobiling together, we made the deal that I would for sure photograph her senior portraits. I was so happy when we set a date and I got to hang out with Chloe and her mom and Scott. We had such a great time, and I loved getting to know Chloe a little bit better. They are from the Lansing area but have a place out in Holland so it was perfect to mix it up for this high school senior and photograph her senior portraits somewhere different. And close to one of her…Continue Reading >
It is soooo refreshing to have a senior boy with some major style. Seejon stepped out of the car with his skinny black pants and army boots with a tie and I was already freaking out. I love a guy with a sense of style. On top of his amazing outfits, he has quite the amazing personality too and from what I can tell … him and his friends have a great sense of humor too.
When I’m shooting a senior session, its always exciting because of where they are in their life. I’m sure that’s how any older person…Continue Reading >
Seriously, what is coming to this world? When seniors are this gorgeous … you know something is going on. I mean come on! I was rocking the braces for my four years in high school along with a nose that outgrew my face in the ninth grade and just pure awkwardness. McKenna is definitely not rocking that ‘awkward’ stage at all, its so not fair. I mean aren’t you suppose to look back at your high school photos and laugh? What fun is this …
I had the honor of photographing this beauty and was so thankful her mother asked…Continue Reading >
i would say most of the time when i have a senior session, their mother accompanies them on their session or even sometimes mom, and some friends. which i love. i love meeting new people and having more people to talk to. BUT, its also so nice to have it one on one sometimes and i feel as though we get to know eachother a little bit better and also ‘try’ different things because we’re not too distracted and you can’t beat any one-on-one situations. so when ari showed up with just herself, i was surprised but also excited. just…Continue Reading >
we started off in a field full of flowers and right away, carly was giggling. it may have started off as nerves but i soon figured out that her little sister seems to make her laugh often. i was so excited to meet carly, a senior at hudsonville high school this year and also a softball player. her mom, sister kelsey, and best friend kristi accompanied us on her session and we had so much fun exploring the country and laughing lots. her smile is so contagious if you can tell. i absolutely love it. below are all genuine smiles…Continue Reading >
the end of the busy season is near. i can see it, smell it, oh how exciting. but i also can look back at all the beautiful people i’ve photographed and sigh and wish i was there again. i just absolutely LOVE spending time with all these amazing people. they have a special place in my heart. in case you have been wondering what i’ve been up to lately, it hasn’t been laying out at the beach everyday … or taking naps … lots has been happening and here is a glimpse into what i’ve been working on lately. hope…Continue Reading >
