Next senior up on the blog, is a super sweet and beautiful Sarah!  We had such a great time on our shoot at Kraft Azalea.  That location is always one of my favorites.  Nice and small park, with great light, and lots of nature!  Her mom and cousin joined the session, not only to fill the role of “guest snapchatter”, but to also be Sarah’s personal assistants.  I love it when family is able to join the senior for their shoot.  It helps the senior feel more relaxed and it is helpful to have an extra set of hands to help with the wardrobe.  I enjoyed getting to know Sarah a little better, and get her some beautiful senior photos.  She is such a fun and sweet girl!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:

Next senior up on the blog, is beautiful Sarah!  We had such a fun time on our deluxe (two location) shoot.  She bought her big sister along with her to act as her assistant (who is also a former senior of mine 😉 ).  The three of us started her session at Dickson Azalea, and then finished it up doing something totally different.  “Glam golf”.  She is a very talented golfer, and we will be doing another sports session for her later in the school year.  But those will be all action shots.  This was to get some pretty and fun golf photos for her!  At the golf course, they were so sweet to us.  After seeing Sarah in a full length gown, they offered us some golf carts to make things a little easier.  Definitely made it easier than walking a couple of holes in heels!

Now that the school year has officially started everywhere, if you haven’t booked YOUR senior photo session yet, what are you waiting for?!  Have an idea of what you want for your session? Let me know, and I’m happy to make that happen for you.  Your senior photos should be all about YOU and what you want!

Now back to Sarah!  Here are some sneak peeks from our session:

Next senior up on the blog is beautiful Hailey (wait until you see her eyes!!  Seriously stunning)!  Yet another repeat family coming back.  Love that I have so many siblings coming back to me this year!  This one was extra special, because even though they moved, they still made the trip to have me do her senior photos.  The location she chose was Rollins, a beautiful spot with lots of options.  She was so sweet and having so much fun, she found another outfit just to make the shoot just a little longer.  I would think that meant she was having a good time.

Next senior up on the blog is beautiful Allie!  Her family is another one that I have worked with in the past, for both her big sister’s senior photos AND for family photos.  So, I already knew we would have a great session ;). Allie started off the shoot with a good attitude, but said she was just doing this for her mom.  However, after we got started, she started having fun!  And she should, because she was so photogenic, and had such a gorgeous serious face!

Here are some of her sneak peeks:

Next senior up on the blog is AJ!  I had such a great time meeting and photographing him at Rollins.  I photographed his sister a few years ago, so I was excited when his mom called to set up AJ’s shoot.  (I love it when families are so happy with their experience, they come back to me!). Typically when moms book their guys for their senior session, they (the guys) want me to just get this over with as quick and painlessly as possible.  But then they realize it isn’t nearly as bad as getting their yearbook photos, and they relax and even have a little fun.  AJ was so great, and just wanted to have good photos, so I didn’t need to rush at all.

Next senior up on the blog is the gorgeous Francesca!  We had such a great time on our shoot at Rollins and Dickson Azalea.  Those two locations give a nice variety of backgrounds for us to work with.  She was such a natural in front of the camera, makes my job easy!  She seemed to have both the smiles AND serious faces nailed (which isn’t easy to do, especially in summer heat!).

This next family sneak peek is a little different.  This is part of MY family!  This is my sister’s family (who doesn’t get in front of my camera very often) while we were on vacation in Maine.  I do get the kiddos in my lens probably close to once a year or every other year.  But the entire family?  Much more difficult to do!  So, I didn’t give them much of a choice.  It is going to happen when we were all on vacation together ;).  I love this little family so much!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Bailey!  She is so super sweet and so smiley!  No matter where we were, or what I had her do, she had such a great big smile on her face.  I’ll take that as she was having a good time ;).

Bailey brought her mom with us to her shoot at Rollins.  She is actually the 3rd sibling in her family to come to me for her senior photos.  I love that her family was so happy with their experience, that they want to continue it for each of their kids.  And I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and photographing each one of them.  Very nice family!  Now, on to her sneak peeks!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Abby!  Abby had a deluxe (two location) session.  Since she is on the water polo team, she wanted the pool as one of her locations.  I love being able to go to different places!  The second location she chose was Casa Feliz.  This is one of my favorite places, because it was one of my very first locations that I started shooting at over 10 years ago.  The one tricky part about Casa, is that I prefer to shoot it in the afternoon.  Afternoon in the summer is tough.  Not only is it really hot out, it is also a good chance that it will be raining.  (And I have to book it in advance).  So, basically all the stars need to be aligned!  This afternoon was no exception.  It was rainy all afternoon, but we kept in touch and when it looked like there was going to be a break in the rain, we headed over.  The rain gods smiled on us, and held off for us to do our shoot.  So glad that we could have a good day to have this sweet girl’s shoot!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Kaila!  I had such a great time with Kaila, her mom, and her friends who came along.  Kaila is a super sweet girl, who was full of smiles and up for anything (including getting crashed by waves). She and her mom wanted a location with water, so what better place than the beach?! Beach equals really early morning, but it is always worth it.  I’ve never had a “bad morning” at the beach.  Sure it is early, but you can always take a nap when you get back home ;).

Here are some sneak peeks from our beach shoot:
