I can't say enough about Sarah!! It's impossible to be around her and not smile, laugh, or just feel nothing but joy! I don't think she's ever had a bad day. Like ever! She is so positive, bubbly, friendly; I could go on forever! Plus she's got an amazing eye for fashion! I need her to be my stylist! We did Sarah's shoot at her Aunt's house in New Orleans (which was amazing!), but it's totally clear where she gets her spark from. Her family was so great, I wanted them to adopt me!! I loooooved photographing her, it's impossible for her to take a bad pic, this girl is photo-GENIC!! Oh and she did her own hair and makeup too! I mean, her talent is never-ending!! #muah
This might be one of my all time FAVE pics:)!!!!
From one Kat to another, I found this girl so relatable! She's so easy to talk to and has SUCH a kind spirit. Truly a natural beauty and a beautiful heart to match. Kat told me at our first shoot she's not one for heavy makeup and doesn't feel like it's 'her' with all that extra-ness (is that a word? I'm paraphrasing; Kathlyn is much smarter than me and probably said it much better;)!!!), but I LOVED that about her. Don't get me wrong, I love to play around with some makeup and it can photograph beautifully, but nothing is prettier than knowing who you are! Plus with looks like hers there's no need for makeup anyway!! Am I right?! All that aside, she's a wonderful person inside and out and I know she's on to great things and with such a good head on her shoulders, nothing can stop her!
I'm sure she's so over me saying this, but Kailey looks so much like a young Isla Fisher! You'd think she'd been in front of the camera as much as Isla too the way she nailed every shot! Now, I don't know Isla, but I do know Kailey and can I just say she is just as beautiful inside as she is outside! Not to mention driven and focused, which is why this girl is going to make one heck of a nurse one day:) As one of my Senior Reps, I've been able to work with her a few times this year, and each and every time I'm so blown away by how mature and genuinely kind she is! I had such a blast with her and her family; This was the perfect way to end my last Senior Shoot of 2018!
Ok, this shoot was magic! Lailyn is THE sweetest Senior and so much fun to work with, which always makes my day better! But I already knew she'd be the best; I've known her amazing family for a few years now and they are truly great people. In fact her younger brother and my son are buds... I realize I just seriously showed my age, but oh well;) The day before the shoot we were looking at some pretty scary weather, so we had a plan of checking the radar first thing and going from there... And props to this girl! We actually ended up having to move the shoot up by about 5 hours, not to mention the shoot location was an hour away, so this girl and her mama had to get up and book it! So when you get ready on a whim AND manage to look this gorgeous, well that's just not fair!! ;) I mean if she hasn't considered a career in modeling, I'm not sure what she's waiting for!
Getting to work with an awesome Senior AND talk shop? Yes, please! I am so thrilled this girl wants to be a photographer!! I mean, I happen to think it's a pretty great profession myself;) This girl is so talented, smart, beautiful; the whole package! She is so positive and happy all the time, truly an inspiration! And this session... FLOWED! As a fellow photographer she already knew what I was going to ask her to do before I could even say the words! Knowing where that light is going to be the best, how to pose... all of it. Made my job super easy! And as a bonus, we were at an amazingly beautiful plantation. Perfect for this gorgeous Southern Belle! Side note, that hat made my day!! #hatfanatic
Heading to a new town to shoot in sunflower heaven is totally up my alley! I love, love, LOVE shooting in new locations! And nothing is better than when your Senior's vibe matches the setting. So to have part of her Senior Session in a sunflower field completely sums up CC; she is beautiful, colorful, and pure joy! Not even the spots of rain we had could get this girl down (if you look closely you'll see some rain drops- you'll also see CC smiling through them all)! You can't help but smile when you're with her. I feel like if she were a flower she'd totally be a sunflower!! Not to mention she's incredibly kind. Beauty and brains aside, a kind heart will get you far in this world and there's not doubt this girl is going places!!
