“Beautiful! Stunning! Gorgeous!” These were the adjectives that Whytney’s family and friends used over and over when they commented on her sneak peek that I posted on the Steph Layne Photography Facebook page. I would also add sweet, caring, polite, modest, charming, lovely, and delightful to the list of adjectives!
Whytney was a dream to work with! As a photographer, you vibe off of the energy of your clients. The more excited they get for their session, the more I do too. I knew that Whytney and her mom Malisa were excited for her session. How did I know this? Because once I started walking towards them in the parking lot of the park I could see all the different clothing changes that she had brought with her that day. Not only clothing changes, but accessories, jewelry, and shoes. This made me so happy! I was already so excited for Whytney’s Senior Session, but after seeing how enthusiastic she and her mom were, I was on a whole other level! I knew right then and there it was going to be a phenomenal session.
It was truly an honor to photograph Whytney for this very special time in her life. I almost didn’t get the chance to though. Malisa contacted me a few months ago to set up a time for her session. Wouldn’t you know between our two schedules we couldn’t find a time that we both had available. They were coming down from St. Louis, which is about four hours north of my home base. So our schedules had to match up perfectly. When you live four hours away from your photographer you don’t have the option to meet up somewhere after school for a few hours. Malisa and I went back and forth with different dates and nothing was working. I was so sad when we both had to come to the conclusion that it might not work out for me to photograph her Senior Session. It was almost a month later that I get a message from Malisa stating that a weekend opened up in October and she wanted to know if I had any openings. I don’t know how it happened, but it worked. I also had an opening that weekend! I kept my fingers crossed for beautiful weather and no interference and I got my wish. Her session day had arrived and it was a beautiful fall afternoon. A very happy ending indeed!
Congratulations Whytney! Your Senior Year is such a special time and I hope you enjoy every minute of it! Soak it all up because it goes far too quickly. I wish you the very best and I know you will go on to accomplish great things!
I could go on and on about how much fun I had with Whytney and how much I love each and every one of her images, but I will let the images speak for themselves. Here are just a few of my favorites from Whytney’s Senior Session. Enjoy and Happy Monday!
