As I walked through the park with Shelby on the evening of her Senior Session, I couldn't help but picture her when she was just a few years old. It seems like just a short time ago that she was sitting between my mom and I at our bible study drawing animals in her notebook that was the size of her lap. Fast-forward fifteen years and that little girl is now a young woman just a few months away from graduating high school. Where does the time go?
I photographed a classmate of Shelby’s, named Emily, just a few days after her session. One of the first things Emily said to me was, “I had no idea Shelby was your cousin, we've done several projects together and she is so smart. I love working with her, she is really funny”. I would agree with every phrase Emily used to describe Shelby and also add that she is an absolute sweetheart. She is a little on the shy side, so every time her mom or I would compliment her she would always giggle modestly and say “thank you”. Those pictures where she shows genuine smiles and laughs are my favorite from the session. All of these moments made me smile while shooting and editing her session.
This blog post was very easy to compose simply because I love each and every image from her session. Shelby was so easy going the entire time. From outfit change to outfit change and from the park to downtown, Shelby was up for whatever ideas popped into my head. I hope you enjoy her images as much as I did. Without further ado I give you Shelby - Senior 2015! Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
