Cap and Gown Portraits // Class of 2018

Whether you’re allowed to or not, let those caps fly! (Well, at least at some point on your graduation day – get that diploma first!)  Bust out of that box that you’ve been put in. From here, things change. Shed all those high school cliche’s and stereotypes and be you – the real you. Don’t worry about what other people think. Be brave and step into the person you are called to be. Be set free. But don’t forget these times. Remember the friendships. Hold close those things your parents and teachers told you that kept you going on the straight and narrow. Keep the prize in your sights, but have fun on the journey. Enjoy the next few years! They will be some of the best of your life! Congrats to all my graduates! I love each one of you dearly!   Y’all, I can’t believe this year is over. It just keeps getting better every year.

Payton // Class of 2018 // Senior Shoot & Cap and Gown

One of the first thing’s Payton told me when we talked about her senior shoot was that she loved photography. So of course, I told her to bring her camera to her session! I loved incorporating that part of her life into her senior portraits. We were on the farm, so we had some interesting subjects (the goats weren’t very cooperative either), but we had fun grabbing some action shots. By the time, she put on those converse & her flannel, she was super comfortable being on the other side of the camera. And I may or may not have made her do some twirls, but the tire swing – that was all Payton! We got to have more fun at her cap and gown shoot a few weeks later – that cap toss is a lot harder than it looks. It’s like throwing a kite. Kris & Payton, thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special year for you! I loved getting to know you!  I hope you cherish these portraits for years to come....
