Senior Time Again!!

I remember all too vividly the day of my Senior pictures. 
My mom had just given me a (very tight) home perm, on my already short hair...oh my what were we thinking??
I suppose schools still do the cattle call type arrangement where you are lined up and shuffled into a room where they drape a curious piece of fabric over a portion of your body (in my day it was a very large fluffy boa, of all things), snap snap snap.  Hurry go change, snap snap snap.  Here is a fake cap and gown, snap snap snap.
I may be scarred for life! 
I am so pleased to be able to offer a totally different experience...though, the hurry go change part remains the same!!

I think this is such an important time in life to document and remember.  Things all start to get crazy from this point on out with the pressures of college, a job or two, marriage, and then children.  Oh, don't get me wrong...those crazy pressures are worth living out, and in, but it makes this last year at home very special.
 Well, that is how I see it anyway!
Look at how distracted I get, you are here for the pictures now aren't you!!

Ok, on to it!! 
I LOVE shooting into the setting sun, or the rising sun (after coffee of course)! I love the way the light bathes people with a lovely glow, how it catches in the eyes and just makes you have to take a deep sigh of wonder.

You know what else I love?  Working with special things that belong to the person who is in front of the camera!  I absolutely want you to bring items that are meaningful to you to our time together.

An old family quilt,
a Bible....

....a chair (that your Mom never let you sit wonky in, but it is okay to, just this once)!
Just a side note here, TOTALLY AMAZING Mom and Dad at this photo session!!  Super helpful when needed and cheering us from the sidelines when not.  I suppose I should add that to my list of loves!! 

I love a suitcase shot, it speaks of moving on and adventure all at the same time!! 

I love red hair and green grass and sparkling eyes that draw you in.

I love school spirit, old and!!  I am not allowed to Whoop am I? 

I love girls who will pop a mouth full of candies in and still have the ability to smile before the sun left the sky!! Ahhh hahaha!!
We really thought we were done, and were both chewing on JuJu's, but then I caught sight of the light and her hair and the color of this jacket and made her sit for just a few more! 
I am glad I did!!
Can you tell that I absolutely enjoyed this session??  I did, it was a blast! 

Blessings to you,
