Lea just started her senior year at Carlinville High School yesterday. I am sure the excitement of senior year and all the possibilities it holds became very real as she walked through the doors into a new chapter of memories. Lea is a sweet, fun, adorable gal who loves athletics and her friends. Roger and I had a great time talking and spending time with she and her mother and enjoyed the great weather this summer have given us, and the relaxed and easy going session. Enjoy a sneak peek of Lea’s senior photos!!

There are a million adjectives out there that reflect positivity and light. And every single one of them would be used to describe my new high school senior friend Hannah. She is sweet as the day is long, and is one of those people that lights up a room. There isn’t anyone who would’t admit that she’s one of the nicest people they’ve ever met. And I haven’t even mentioned yet that she is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. How one person can be that total package I do not know. But I do know that when you have something new you are offering as a photographer, THIS is the girl that you want as your VIP. And when Hannah contacted for senior photos, we knew THIS was the type of session we HAD to have with her!!
We’ve known Catie for awhile now. We photographed her brother’s senior session a few years ago, and anyone who knows us knows that session was one of our favorites of all time. We also had the privilege of photographing her sister’s wedding last year and that was a day near and dear to our hearts as well. One thing for certain – Catie’s parents have produced some amazing kids. So, when we knew we’d be photographing Catie we were sure it was going to be fun – but we had no idea HOW fun. We knew it would yield some great images – but we had no idea HOW great. And we assumed it would be rewarding – but there was no way to know HOW rewarding it would be. Catie rocked our world. I looked forward to going through these photos way more than just your average session, and editing was fun vs a task. Enjoy Catie’s amazing senior session!!
This is going to sound crazy, but there really is a way to time travel. It’s done fairly easily actually. All you have to do is go through old photos and presto – you’re taken back in time. You can almost smell the air, feel the temperature, and experience that exact moment again just by looking at an image. It’s truly remarkable.
Brendan is athletic and handsome – that’s a given. But he is such a charming, polite person with a warm, genuine smile. Having a high school senior myself, I have to believe that his parents must be so proud of him. You don’t come across teenagers like him every day, so we enjoyed getting to know Brendan one COLD Friday morning. I’m sure he would have rather been just about anywhere other than in front of our cameras that morning, but he modeled like a pro and never complained. Enjoy a few from Brendan’s senior session!!
