Have I ever told you about my senior pictures? I did not have any sense of fashion, my eyebrows were overwhelming to my face, and all but one outfit were photographed inside.

These girls I’m photographing now have the cutest outfits (that I always wish I could borrow without it being creepy…), the best hair, and such fun personalities that tend to shine in an outdoor setting. Like these golden trees and cozy fall sunlight – so beautiful!!

I loved photographing Bailee, her sweet smile, and her fun outfits – I’m so glad we were able to catch some fall colors for her!!




She’s even adorable when she’s serious!! I just looked downright sad in my non-smiling senior pictures!!

I have had so much fun spending time with high school seniors lately – talking about summer jobs, future plans, and all the excitement of leaving home and being on your own. Sean has big plans and he is excited to work hard for them. In just the couple hours I spent with him, I can tell he will do great things and I am excited to see what life brings him. :-)

 Sean – have fun and enjoy your senior year!! I had a great time meeting and photographing you!

Let me just start by saying… I love this girl. She has helped me at a handful of weddings over the past few summers, and now that she’s starting her final year of high school, I finally had an excuse to photograph her beautiful face!! She laughs at all my jokes and she can make any pose I throw at her completely adorable just by being her. I wish I could photograph her every week. :-)

 Oh, and we also like try out new locations… and find hidden gems like this here and there. :-)

 And despite having a dog pee on her shoes, she still giggles like a sweetheart just for a great photo. Such a trooper!! :-)

 Round two: straight hair and more new locations!! Yay!!

 Hannah – thank you SO much for having fun with me and trying out all these new locations!! We’ve had lots of memorable adventures and I can’t wait for more to come!! :-)

Another year, another group of high school graduates!! My passion for photography is mostly for weddings, but I do enjoy a senior portrait session every now and then – kinda like a stress reliever. :-)

You might recognize Hannah – she’s been helping me with a few weddings here in the Black Hills and now it’s finally her turn in front of my camera! I just couldn’t wait until this summer to photograph Hannah – so we decided to do a mini session this weekend!!

Here are my top favorites, but be on the lookout later this summer for more of Hannah’s beautiful face! :-)

Kayla was so much fun and SO easy to photograph – she’s got a great smile but can turn it off in an instant for a quick serious pose. Not many girls can pull that off! And to top it off, she can look great in SUPER cold weather. I was wearing my down coat to keep warm, and she was wearing short-sleeved shirts and tights!!

Kayla – Thanks for being a rockstar – I admire you for willing to take pictures in such cold weather! Honestly, it took me a couple hours to completely warm up after our session!!

Nancy and Rachel – Thanks for being a great team and helping out with outfits, shoes and keeping warm in the car. :-)
