Downtown Chicago Senior Session | Anna

Any Star Wars fans here? I’ll admit I’m one! I can’t count the number of times I’ve been Princess Leia or Padme for Halloween :P If you’ve seen the movies, doesn’t the image above totally remind you of a scene from Naboo?! The columns, the ivy, the arched windows — it’s like we’re on set!

One of my favorite things about Chicago is that every corner can transport you to a totally different country, era, or even galaxy (lol okay I’m done geeking out now). That’s why I was so excited when Anna wanted to meet me in downtown Chitown for her senior session! We spent an evening running around the windy city, finding the best backgrounds, and chasing the sun. It was so much fun! I also loved getting to know Anna during her shoot. She is as sweet as can be and has the best style. Wait until you see the hat she brought; I’m obsessed with it! More Chicago shoots pleaseeeee!

Sunny Summer Senior Session | Anne | West Lafayette

Anne's senior session was the perfect summer shoot -- blooming flowers, bright colors, and a gorgeous sunset to top it all off. I just love shooting during this time of year because everything is alive and flourishing! Anne just started her senior year at West Side (RDP!) and is a member of the school's golf team. For her shoot, we decided upon a mixture of town and rustic settings.

Emily's Senior Pictures | West Lafayette

It's been a minute since I've posted a senior session on the blog so I'm very grateful for a break from school for Thanksgiving to catch up on emails, editing, and blogging! I'm especially excited to finally be sharing a bunch of shots from Emily's gorgeous senior session! 

Emily is a senior at West Lafayette High School, has the sweetest personality, and the cutest style ever! Last year, she actually tagged along for Meg's rustic, November senior session and mentioned wanting to schedule her shoot with me for this fall. So Emily's senior pictures have been a long-time coming and I think they absolutely lived up to the hype! I say that because seriously every other shot was a new favorite! Even narrowing shots down for this blog post was difficult!

Maria's Senior Pictures | West Lafayette

Even though the location and styling play a role in curating the perfect session; I always stay focused on the people I'm capturing to make them feel as amazing as they already are. I had so much fun hanging out with Maria and her mom a few weeks ago! We had to reschedule Maria's senior session a few times due to rain, but I'm so glad we waited for the right weather. We ended up shooting on the most beautiful September evening! Not only were the conditions perfect, but the company was great as well! Maria is so kind, intelligent, and has the best smile. I seriously love every single laughing shot I got of her (and there were a LOT) because she looked so genienly happy about life! I already know that Maria is going to do big things with her future, and I can't wait to see where her dreams will take her! Enjoy some of my favorite shots from her senior session!

Kylie's Senior Pictures | West Lafayette

Fun Fact: all locations that we shot at were within a 5 minute walking radius of my apartment! Ever since falling in love with photography in junior high, I've always loved challenging myself to make use of whatever locations were around me. When you find a fountain, a vine covered church, a wooden wall, and a skyline view all in one spot, it's so easy for a two hour shoot to fly by, which is exactly what happened during Kylie's shoot!

Meg's Senior Pictures | West Lafayette

The perfect golden hour, a wooden hut filled with weapons (I mean tools!), and a lush pink sunset... Meg's senior session has it all! There's so many aspects that go into planning and preparing for a senior session. My shoots are very casual, in the sense that we just have fun running around, chasing the light, and taking pictures. But there's a lot different aspects that go into the perfect shoot! There's deciding on outfits, hair and makeup, choosing a location that fits the senior's personal style, and hoping that all of the natural elements (wind, rain, bugs) don't misbehave! I never expect everything to go perfectly, but I have to say, Meg's shoot ended up being pretty close!

Lydia's Senior Pictures | West Lafayette

So, as I'm writing this, it's snowing outside. Being originally from California, I'm a beach-bum at heart and am not a huge fan of winter... at all. Snow is pretty to look at, but I'd much prefer to be basking in the sunshine! Therefore, it's the perfect time to throw it back to Lydia's sunny and vibrant senior session! Lydia was another one of my fall seniors this year and was a blast to hangout with! She has a gorgeous smile plus a stunning serious face, and the most beautiful naturally curly hair (I'm seriously so jealous!)

Emma's Senior Pictures | Central Catholic

Meet Emma! She's a senior at Central Catholic High School and was a player for her school's soccer team (who made it to semi-state by the way -- so awesome!) For her senior session, we had a gorgeous fall day with the most amazing light at sundown. Occasionally, there was a gust of wind, but Emma has STUNNING long hair that blew with the breeze and just totally worked for the shot! Basically she's Pocahontas :)

It's been FOREVER since I've blogged a senior session and I'm so excited that my first one back is with one of my friends, Kristin! This girl was a freshman when she joined the dance team (back when I was a senior!) and I just can't wrap my head around the fact that she's a senior now! Where has the time gone? Kristin is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met... SERIOUSLY! Not only is she drop dead gorgeous and has an infectious smile, but she also has the kindest heart. Here's a sneak peek into her senior session!

Nate's Senior Pictures | West Lafayette

"I bet no one else has senior pictures on their roof with a cat." Nate's senior session started off like any other. We were getting great shots all around the park while chatting about his future plans at Indiana University next fall. But when we were about to head to another location, he brought up an idea he had.

Madi's Senior Pictures | McCutcheon

I seriously LOVE senior sessions -- can you tell?! We stroll around town taking pretty pictures and talking about future plans; it really is a blast! They're especially fun when the senior you're hanging out with is a fellow PHOTOGRAPHER!
