A new mom celebrates life and Senior year with her family

   A family of 3 walk in to my studio. Mom is a Senior in High School and coming to plan her Senior Session. Dad is here to be supportive and take care of little baby girl so Mom can have her time. And baby girl just lays there with those big eyes that make you melt. I instantly fall in love with them as a family, and then we take beautiful portraits together.

    I guess that’s the shortened version of this whole story, and straight to the point- I just adore these guys!

    Paige is so impressive. She’s in the busiest stage of her life as she is about to graduate from high school, she power lifts and does cross fit, and on top of all that she’s a fantastic mom (and new fiancé- yay!)

   Paige had two requests for her session.
First and most important for her portraits- that feeling of being Free.
Something light, whimsical, open spaces.
Second- incorporating her mom's (who had passed) Senior portrait in to her session.

    At a time where most Seniors are going through phases of thinking about themselves first, it seemed that Paige’s attention would always shift from herself back to her family. I wanted her to take this moment for herself, to take time to celebrate her, because at no matter what age, mom’s need and deserve that. This was HER time to shine. It was OK to JUST think about herself. But I get it now. When some Senior’s want to include their sports, hobbies, cars, instruments because it’s what’s most important to them at the time and represents who they are, that’s exactly what Paige wanted to do too, incorporate what meant the most to her at this stage in her life. So I let her.

   And this is the amazing beauty that happened...
