Sam & Natalie Purdue Graduation Portraits

20160507-img_5324.jpg

So I really love hanging out and photographing Purdue grads. It totally brings me back to my college days and how exciting is to graduate with your entire future ahead of you. It is so exhilarating. And I am so excited for these two cuties as they go on lots of adventures in Oklahoma! And Sam's blazer was one of my favorites! And what's even better, is that his mom found it at a second hand store. LOOOVE this. I am all about those thrift stores and finding a good deal, especially when they look that good.

Natalie also decked out her cap with a little map of Indiana and Oklahoma. Very pinterest worthy, if you ask me!

Congratulations you two on all of your accomplishments!!

Ps. I totally wish I did this when I graduated - a combined session with my one & only. How sweet is this? I mean, graduating together is a big deal!

Megan | High School Senior Photographer

Let me introduce you to the beautiful, the talented Megan.

  • She is a natural athlete, as she plays basketball and track
  • She excels at school
  • She is a young graphic designer (oooh! I was excited to hear that)

And on top of that, she was so awesome to work with. Her beautiful glowed and her smile was so genuine, I couldn't help smile with her behind the camera. That is one of the reasons I love being a high school senior photographer...you get to meet these incredibly talented, beautiful individuals and imagine with them what their future holds! And they let me pose them and guide them throughout the session, which doesn't always happen with newborns and little kiddos!

I wanted to share with you some of my favorites!

Kyle's Senior Session | Lafayette Indiana Senior Photographer

Eeek! I can't wait to share with your Kyle's senior session because 1) He is a great, hilarious guy who will go very, very far in life and 2) his pigs were models too! That was for sure a first for me and it was awesome. His little pig was so cute. I even met his family of goats as well. So Kyle is big into 4H and has more awards than I think I ever will in my entire life. He has found his passion in life and is continuing this by becoming a 4H judge. How awesome is that? I learn so much from my seniors! Here's his awesome photos!!

And congrats to all the 2015 Grads! It's crazy another year has flown by.

Seth's Senior Session | Pearl Photo & Design

We're switchin' it up on the blog over here! Instead of adorable babies, gorgeous families, and super cute baby bumps - I'm photographing a Senior and a guy! Woah. I know, totally not the norm. Well we had a blast! We went around downtown Lafayette, found some run down building, and used an old trailer to show off his awesome smile and massive guns!

A lot of times when photographing guys, you can instantly tell that this is not the place they want to be. They would much rather be throwing a football or playing the Xbox. None of this posing stuff! So I work with them to realize that having their senior session could actually be FUN. Who knew? Seth was nervous at first, but by the end of the session he had his "Blue Steel" look nailed and he knew it! It was also fun having his younger brother there. And I put him to work! He was the reflector/shade creator and he did an awesome job!!

So all you Senior guys out there, check out Seth's photos. He brought in his tough, football personality and gave us his big smile. All while having fun!

I promise - you will too :)

Schuyler | High School Senior Portraits | Lafayette Indiana Photographer

High School Senior Portraits are a blast. We have so much fun with outfits, poses, and locations! Schuyler's session was no exception. Her fun and outgoing personality really shines in her portraits - and I was even more impressed by her life long aspirations. She is so brilliant AND incredibly beautiful. She is one blessed girl! And I felt honored to photograph her Senior Portraits for her.

This is a big time in your life and your senior portraits are something that help remember who you are and who you will become. Looking back at my own personal senior pictures, I am amazed at how much I have grown since then! It is something that I will always treasure.

And Schuyler's seniors turned out absolutely stunning. Her eyes were glowing and her smile she radiant. I absolutely love them!
