Abby | Lincoln-Way East High School | Class of 2014 | Chicago Senior Photographer | Indianapolis Senior Photographer

Well, what can I say about Miss Abby?  She is the sister of one of my son’s best friends, and I have been waiting and waiting for the opportunity to photograph her!  I got that opportunity when I put out a model call for a Workshop Weekend and Abby responded!  I was so excited to be mentoring two fabulous photographers from Columbus, OH (Fran Barker Photography and Alison Janki Photography)!  Abby was an ideal model for us—super sweet, adorable, and willing to brave what turned out to be one the WORST days for a shoot that I’ve ever encountered!

I had to get creative with rainy, 40 degree weather!  So we ended up shooting in a greenhouse for the first half of the shoot, and braving freezing cold, damp weather for the second half.  Abby (and her counterpart Kanika, who you’ll meet in a future blog) could not have had better attitudes, sweeter smiles, or more enthusiasm!  They both really saved the day, and we ended up with MANY images of gorgeous girls!!

Abby, you are so wonderful, and I can’t wait to see what your senior year brings, and where God takes you!  Thank you for making lemonade out of lemons that day!

Lauren | Carl Sandburg High School | Class of 2013 | Chicago Senior Photographer | Indianapolis Senior Photographer

Well, now that it’s practically summer, I thought it was about time to get this winter beauty on the blog!  Lauren’s winter session was one that I was beginning to think would never happen!  We were waiting for snow.  And waiting…and waiting…and waiting.  Finally, at the end of February we got some snow.  Not a ton, but enough!

I love the way we styled her!  Her mom brought so many adorable winter white outfits and awesome jewelry, and I thought a pop of color in her lips would be amazing.  They were!  Just take a look!  There is such an air of vintage flair to these images.  I love them!  Lauren always makes it all so easy though!  She braved the freezing cold, and even though her hands were blue, she kept her bright, sunny smile.  🙂

Thanks, Lauren, for another amazing photoshoot!  You’re the best!

Paige | Lincoln-Way Central High School | Class of 2013 | Chicago IL Senior Photographer

What a blast I had with Paige on her senior photo shoot!  She has such a sense of style, and those heels she brought were killer!  We roamed train yards, woods and fields, and found some awesome locations to get great images of this gorgeous girl!  Paige is not only beautiful, but one smart cookie, too!  She will be a Physics major at the University of Illinois this Fall.  I am honestly so impressed that though she is so smart, she is one of the most humble and sweetest girls I know!  Paige is also a Varsity cheerleader, and she serves by being a cheerleading coach for the Junior Knights of the New Lenox Youth Football Association.  She is a woman of many talents!  🙂

Paige, thank you so much for trusting me with your senior portraits this year!  I enjoyed every minute of having you in front of my camera, and hanging out behind it!

Lauren | Carl Sandburg High School | Class of 2013 | Chicago Senior Photographer

You may recognize this beautiful face from an earlier post.  And you will see it again two more times after this!  Welcome to “Lauren in Autumn”.  We had so much fun starting our shoot in Frankfort, and ending up in two “top secret” woodsy locations at the end.  Half of the fun of this senior photo shoot was location scouting with Lauren’s mom about 10 days before Lauren’s session!  I’m pretty sure we walked at least a couple of miles trying to find the cool hollow in the forest where we could use a lantern, and go for some mysterious images.  I think we achieved our goal!

The most successful photoshoots are the ones where my senior has really thought about what she is going to wear, and brings all manner of accessories to really accent her look.  Lauren took this to heart, and it’s evident in her images.  She took the time to browse Pinterest, ModCloth, Polyvore, and other great sites for fashion inspiration.  Lauren also brought pieces of clothing that were special to her, like the beautiful leather jacket she got while she was in Ireland on a special trip.  Incorporating pieces that are special to you give even more meaning to your senior images!

Since I last posted Lauren’s “Summer Shoot”, she has accepted admission to the Pre-Professional Program of the College of Health and Human Sciences at Purdue University for Speech and Language Pathology! They limit the program to 60 slots each year and they chose her!  I know she will do incredible things with her education, and really help people who struggle in this area!  You are really special Lauren, and I can’t wait for our next two senior sessions!  Now we just need to pray for SNOW!!!  🙂

I just love the warmth of this image, combined with those piercing blue eyes!  She is STUNNING!

Lauren | Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy | Class of 2013 | IL Senior Photography

Lauren is the daughter of one of my best friends, and I’ve known this young lady since she was just a lil’ thing.  It’s hard to believe this gorgeous young woman is the same little girl I knew!  I’m so happy that Lauren was able to come up here for her session, even though we were sweating to death in 99 degree weather!  Of course, Lauren had a great attitude in spite of the heat, and thank God for her mom who helped me hang the Chinese lanterns in the tree!  I was never so thankful for my incredible make-up artist and hair stylist, Patricia Cernuik, who applied “melt proof ” make-up to perfection!  🙂

Lauren, I’m so impressed with the capable, caring and lovely Christian woman you have become!  I know you will love Purdue, and they will be  fortunate to have you!  Love you!
