Sophia // Class of 2018

Sophia // Class of 2018

Not every girl is willing to sit on a pile of tires for her senior portraits, but Sophia didn’t hesitate when I asked. We were walking by & I pointed out the red fence with the green ivy growing up around the spare tires next to a mechanic’s garage. She was all about it. I love how versatile her style is! Plus, she can pretty much wear anything and look like a model – what a beauty! Her steely eyes cut right through the lens. So gorgeous! Beverly & Sophia, thank you so much for working with me and being game for anything at the session! I am praying for Sophia as she takes the next leap in...

Taylor // class of 2018

Taylor’s hair is the kind that does what it wants and still looks amazing. That’s why I let it cover her face for a few shots. Even though she is probably the most calm, cool and collected senior I’ve ever shot, she still has a wild side 😉 That wild side… it’s taken her all over the globe. She has such a sense of adventure. It’s inspiring! That beautiful multi-colored blanket is from some of her travels. Thailand, Belize, Ecuador and I’m sure there’s more. I can’t wait to see where she’s going to go next, maybe I can tag along. Taylor & Rebecca, it has been such a privilege getting to know y’all this year. Thank you so much for inviting me into your adventurous life. I cannot wait to see the amazing things you, Taylor, are called to in the coming years. If you ever need a photographer to come with you and document your exciting travels, please give me a call! I can see a travel vlog in your future...
Griffin // Class of 2018

Griffin // Class of 2018

The weather was warm but not so sunny for Griffin’s session. We headed out into the fields early in the morning and the fog offered a really cool backdrop. We had a few distracting animals during the session – goats & a peacock, which is pretty normal for my sessions. But we also rescued a snapping turtle – which is definitely not normal for my sessions. We also talked about some of our favorite comedians, which got a few laughs. And on a less foggy day, we headed out on the greens for a few swings of the golf club. I absolutely love the series of his golf swing. I love to capture those action shots. Jennifer & Griffin, it has been so wonderful working with your family again! I loved Griffin’s laid back attitude & incorporating golf into the session. I wish him the best of luck as he heads off to college! Maybe we’ll see him on the PGA tour someday...

Will // Class of 2018

Say hello to the first LCP senior shoot for the class of 2018! Can you believe you are through the first half of senior year, guys!? Only one more semester and you are OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL! Crazy, right? Sooo…. We did Will’s session back in May when the weather was warm and tropical. Now that we actually have some fall weather in DECEMBER, I’m so glad that we did some fall outfits, but you know, we gotta get that Hawaiian shirt in there, too. Will is a such a fun guy, I mean, look at his Jeep. Annnnd I got him to do a few stunts. I think he would say his session was less painful than he predicted and I think he surprised his mom a little bit with his ‘model’ behavior — okay, too cheesy. But really, he could definitely do a shoot with J.Crew or Patagonia. John, Will & Laury, thank you for working with me again! Your family is so beautiful, and I am so grateful to know you! Will, congrats on making it this far – can’t wait to see where you’re headed...

Colleen // APA co2017

Yesterday this beautiful girl turned 18, and in a few months, high school will be history for her. So many things to mark this as a monumental year in her life. Lots of lasts. Firsts. Good-byes. Hellos. I had the privilege of taking her senior pictures and being part of this special year in her life, and after watching her grow up for the past 8 years, I’m proud to see what a wonderful person she has become. She donned the homecoming crown this fall and has a super strong friendship with 3 other truly amazing girls (click here to see their BFF shoot!). A cord of 4 strands is not easily broken, right! Jeanette & Colleen, thank you for choosing me to commemorate this year and so many others. I’m praying for you both during this new adventure. I have no doubt it is going to be amazing! Love...
