Olivia | Walt Disney World Senior Session | Class of 2017

Picture a day filled with sunshine, glitter, big band music, and fun, then include a gorgeous senior, a castle, and a whole bunch of pixie dust, and you have Olivia’s senior session. She came all the way down from Tennessee for her senior session, and we made it a day to remember, waltzing through an only lightly-crowded Magic Kingdom in pure golden light, stopping along the way at cute locations and to discuss Dole Whips. We made sure to stop at some special locations, such as the Be Our Guest restaurant, Big Top Circus, and even rode around on the carousel, which was especially magical because there was no one else around us and it felt like we had the ride all to ourselves. Her outfits were perfect: colorful sundresses and even her cheer uniform, poms, and cap + gown. It was a day to remember.

Olivia is a radiant, beautiful gal, and I had a blast chatting with her as we made our way through the most magical place on earth. She’s obsessed with all things Disney, has the goal of visiting every country in Europe, is a dog person and dreams of one day opening her own sanctuary-like location for rescue dogs who are in need of homes. After graduation, she’ll be heading off to school to pursue her dream of becoming a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in order to give newborns the extra care they need to help them thrive. Olivia, you have a heart of gold and I know you’ll achieve everything you set out to accomplish.

Enjoy the images.

Have a magical weekend, friends!

Allie | Florida Senior Session | Class of 2017

Allie’s senior session was golden, beautiful, and fun, and started off with an unexpected breeze. It was a bright and sunshiney day in Florida as we both pulled up to our first location. Allie had giant balloons that spelled 2017, beautiful outfits, and a bright, spunky personality: a recipe for a fantastic session. As we were getting ready to head into the field, a rogue breeze wafted through and snatched an un-anchored “0” balloon from her car, and away it went: over the trees and pastures, calmly shining while we were left with 217. Luckily, Allie is a go-with-the-flow gal and she laughed it off, thankful we were left with 17, which still worked beautifully. We tromped through bushes and grass, chatting about life, work, and school, all while trying to keep the giant balloons under control and tied onto their anchors. The balloons stayed tied, and we had an amazing shoot.

Allie is an animal lover and when she first contacted me about a senior session, she asked if she could bring her two golden retrievers along to her second location- I said yes immediately and love the images we captured with them. Bora Bora is her dream travel destination, and between work and school you’ll probably find her dancing and singing in her car. After graduation, Allie will head off to college to pursue a degree in Physical Therapy. Allie, your contagious laugh and fun personality made this shoot absolutely beautiful and it’s one of my new favorites. I wish you all the best in all you set out to accomplish!

Enjoy the images.

Have a fantastic rest of your week, friends.

Alex + Sammy | Walt Disney World Portrait Session

Alex + Sammy: a little bit of sparkle, and a little bit of spunk. We met at the Magic Kingdom one sunshine filled afternoon for a portrait session to celebrate their Bat Mitzvah and commemorate this special time in their lives. Alex is the glam gal and wore a tiara for her photos, and Sammy is the spunky, ready-for-anything gal, and we had a blast going through the Magic Kingdom, capturing both of their vibrant personalities. We climbed the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, jumped in front of the purple wall, and were given free waffle fries and chicken by a Cast Member, which was truly a magical moment. Alex and Sammy, I had so much fun with you in the Magic Kingdom and am happy I could be a part of your special day.

Enjoy the images.

Have a restful weekend, friends!

Keith | Florida Senior Session | Class of 2017

Keith is a cool dude. He’s kind, plays football, and laughed at all of my lame jokes. We had his shoot planned for a while, and as the day of his session progressed, so did the clouds and dark skies. After careful radar-watching, we decided to postpone a few days, and I’m glad we did! The rescheduled day was clear, sunny, and absolutely beautiful. Keith + his girlfriend, Riley, and I met along an old-oak covered pathway by the beach, and began the shoot. We chatted about school, college plans, and life, shooting away and capturing some pretty stellar images. Keith, your shoot was an absolute blast and I wish you success in all you set out to accomplish!

Enjoy the images.

Finish the week strong, friends!
