Bella Vista, Arkansas Senior Photo Session | Audrey Stanton

Audrey had her senior photos taken several weeks back, but when her and her mom found this incredible location they couldn't resist taking a few more! Lucky for me they were willing to wait until I was in town (I have family in the Bentonville area) and trusted me to capture them on this gorgeous dock! With the sun so bright on the water behind her, my off-camera flash (OCF) with a portable soft box saved the day yet again :) 


Classic Downtown Kansas City Couple Session | Kristi Rose & Andrew

Kristi Rose and Andrew are two of the coolest, most hilarious, most genuine people I know. Ten short days are all I have left of this incredible couple before they move to California for the next chapter in their lives. It is bittersweet for sure. They have added so much joy to my life and will leave a gaping hole in their absence, but in the same breath, Kristi Rose is fulfilling her lifelong dream of going to Physician's Assistant School so I'm incredibly excited for them! In honor of the time they have spent here in Kansas City (for Kristi, most of her life), we did a sort of "Classic KC" session... starting with the STREETCAR and ending with the skyline :D

This was a session to remember, and hopefully one that will help them remember Kansas City and the people here!

Kansas City 2016 Senior Representative: Shelby Brand

I'll admit it...I am INCREDIBLY late in the game to be taking senior representative photos...but I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to make a new connection so I'm glad I still went for it! Meet the beautiful Shelby. She goes to high school in Olathe but was kind enough to meet me downtown for some photos at the Liberty Memorial/Crown Center area of Kansas City.

Shelby was such a trooper, finding random restrooms to change in and hiking up the massive hill in her high heels... I couldn't have asked for an easier person to work with :) Shelby loves music, pours herself into her two jobs and says she is known to be a crazy cat lady (although I thought she was very normal haha). She'll be attending Kansas University in the fall and I'm so excited for all the opportunities she will run into in this next stage of life. My younger sister is graduating high school this year as well so I have a special place in my heart for all those making the plunge into college or jobs or whatever dreams they have for their lives. It's such a time of adventure and change and I love seeing them be bold, take risks and enter into the first stage of adulthood! Congratulations to the high school class of 2016 - you've almost made it! 

Oh and I forgot to mention, we certainly weren't the only ones out taking senior photos that was too beautiful not to. How adorable was this scene we ran into?!? Unfortunately this was moments before the 0 balloon floated away......

Woodland Park, Colorado Senior Photos | Shanae Roberts

I can't BELIEVE my little sister is a senior in high school already!! She is my mini-me and it was my favorite to get to take her photos a couple weeks ago in our beautiful hometown, Woodland Park, Colorado. We went to my favorite old barn and brought our mom along with us which mostly was perfect because she made Shanae laugh a lot :)

Shanae has a beautiful, positive spirit and is so dedicated to whatever she puts her mind to. She is an incredible artist (check out some of her work here), a talented musician, and most likely a soon to be published author (check out her Facebook page). She is also an animal lover at her very core (the last photo is of her puppy, not her, in case you couldn't tell). She has always been mature for her age and it is such a privilege to be her sister. Love you nina!!
