I have something truly exciting to share with ya'll!
I have been asked about Senior sessions a lot this year and I have decided to do something new and meaningful- I've decided to offer a limited number of Senior Storytelling Sessions. These sessions are going to blend traditional senior portraits with my documentary style to create something really beautiful and one-of-a-kind. Something that perfectly fits each individual.
From the bottom of my soul, I am so excited for these.
These teenagers have been really put through it these past 2 years, it's been a wild ride. A lot of their high school experiences have been taken away from them by this awful pandemic. I want to do something outside of the box for them, something untraditional, I want to do these my way.
I'm not asking for them to smile. I'm not asking for them to be a certain way or feel a certain way. This year was heavy. It continues to be heavy.
I'm letting them show me what they want to show me. We're hanging out with zero expectations and I'm letting them lead the way... I'm just capturing moments and making art as we go- only the littlest bit of guidance from me here and there.
I want these to be like a heart to heart, but on camera.
I want these to be absolutely infused with their personality and their interests. If they are shy and introverted, I'm not asking them to jump up and down and model for me, let's just be quiet together. If they are an artist, let's work with that. If they are a skater, then we're going to the skate park. If they love to surf, we're headed to the beach then. Whatever they are into, who ever they are, that's what we want to remember. That's what we want to celebrate.
To the Class of 2022- I see you.

I'm so excited to tell their stories and create something meaningful for them... and for you mama. It's like you blinked and here we are, am I right?
