I am a wedding and portrait photographer who keeps things light, fun, and full of energy. I’m based out of Springfield, Illinois however I love traveling all over the midwest and beyond.
inquire about your session!
Everyone say Hello to Shelby! This beauty is heading into her senior year at Glenwood High School in Chatham, Illinois. As with most of my senior clients, Shelby was a bit nervous at the beginning of her session about making sure she was posing right and getting the photos that she really wanted. I made sure the take the time to reassure her that I would be giving her plenty of direction. By the end of the session she would be close to posing herself like a runway model because she would be that comfortable. And believe me….She totally ROCKED IT!
Shelby was so sweet and gracious as we wondered around at a spot she picked out and a couple she allowed me to pick for her. I wanted her to be the first of my seniors to try out a location or two. Her mom, Stacey and dad, Jeff accompanied us throughout our time together. I loved showing them little sneak peeks of the back of my camera of their gorgeous eldest daughter. The first time I did this I unintentionally caused a few tears from mom, who said she wasn’t going to cry! Happy tears of course to see her first of three children to hit this milestone moment. So wonderful! I remember asking Shelby how she was feeling leading up to the start of the new school year. She said that she was excited, yet a bit sad. As she explained her mixed emotions she said she was simply sad to have many “Lasts”. Such as her “Last” first day of high school, “Last” prom, etc. I definitely can understand this as I thoroughly enjoyed my time in high school and hated it was coming to an end, but excited for the future.
After we hit our couple of places in the city we decided a fun way to end Shelby’s senior shoot was at Riverside Park under the train tracks. Again she was a natural and gracefully worked her way through each idea that popped into my head for her! Thank you to Shelby, along with her parents, for thinking of me. I wish you great success during your senior year and beyond!
