the senior model photoshoot is one of my most favorite days of the year!  after weeks of dreaming, planning, pinning, prop making and shopping it is so rewarding to see my creative vision come to life.  the senior model sessions would never work without the amazing team that i have and the super seniors that i select each year.  a huge thank you to carla white, kallos salon, sarah broyhill, ann loftis, melea and cliff schneider!

this year’s woodland wonderland senior model shoot was one for the books!  the girls, the wardrobe and the styling were on point, but mother nature threw us a curve ball.  just as the last few girls were finishing up with hair and make-up the bottom fell out of the sky.  it poured and there was no end in sight until after dark.  as a natural light photographer you have to adapt or die!  although some of my plans for locations and lighting did not work out i am so happy with the imagery that we were able to create at this senior model shoot.  my seniors did not let the pouring rain dampen their mood.  we embraced the monsoons and danced in the rain!
