Abby- Class of 2019

Abby brought so much joy to her session. High schoolers get a bad reputation these days, and I have to say Abby was kind, polite and easy going. I absolutely loved spending the evening with Abby and her mom. They reminded me so much of my mom and I at that age. They cherished spending time together and bantered easily as they chatted about their summer and family vacations throughout the years.

Abby had a very clear vision for her senior session- she wanted something earthy and bohemian inspired right at sunset. We had the perfect day to help make her vision a reality. We drove all around Stony Creek Metropark, me watching out the window for spots and quickly asking Abby’s mom to pull over so we could hop out and use the perfect patch of trees or the nearby softball backstop for Abby’s pictures in her varsity jacket.

Abby has such a beautiful sense of confidence, where she is sure of herself without any airs of boasting or self-centeredness. I could go on and on- Abby was an absolute joy to photograph! And let’s be honest, when your client shows up in an outfit as cool as Abby’s stripped romper you know it is going to be a good session! Congratulations on your graduation, Abby- enjoy all of the excitement of the upcoming year!

Mikayla- Class of 2019

I am going to be catching up on summer blog posts all fall and then I will be catching up on fall blog posts all winter. I am just accepting that being slightly behind is part of my life now, and if that means more Leland snuggles and lazy mornings as a family I am totally okay with that.

Since I have Leland home with me each day I have to set realistic expectations for myself. I have learned to pick out three things that must get done that day. I accomplish those three things first, and if there is time for anything else then great. If not, I still feel accomplished and on task. Typically my top three things are editing sessions and getting them back to clients, even if that means they get their pictures back before I get to posting a preview or a blog post.

So that brings us to Mikayla’s pictures! We snapped these at the beginning of the summer. Mikayla was so much fun to work with. We started the session with some family pictures, then her brother and dad headed out to get a table for dinner while Mikayla, her mom and I wondered around downtown Milford. It was clear that Mikayla enjoyed having her mom there, which made the time together even more special. For most seniors, senior pictures are the first of many big milestone events for the year. You could tell that Mikayla and her mom were going to have a whole lot of fun with all of the events to come.

I can almost feel that warm summer sunshine when I look back on these pictures! I hope you are having the most wonderful start to your senior year, Mikayla!
