I encourage parents and seniors to think through the senior session together, for several reasons. One of the most important ones is that it allows parents and their children to experience their senior moment and tell their story together. The memories and stories are something both will treasure for years to come. The college chapter is right around the corner and sharing in this part of your high school senior’s story is one of those “big” moments.
This beauty and her mom both joined me for her shoot, and Brianna was so terrific to work with. She wanted to bring in lots of florals, greens and natural elements, and so we headed out to the historic Ellwood House in Dekalb, Illinois. This is such a gorgeous venue, and boasts a lot of historical significance for the area. It was once the residence of entrepreneur Isaac Ellwood, and was built in 1879. It features many picturesque backdrops around the grounds and is listed on the U.S. Register of Historic Places. We had a bit of stormy weather early in the day, but the skies cleared just in time…we had a great time skipping, jumping, and enjoying the outdoors. Her mom wanted to incorporate sunflowers, and of course, moms are industrious, so she found perfect, fresh blooms and brought them along (thanks, mom!). Brianna brought lots of simple, sweet outfits along, and some were from SIS~Shop in Style. You might remember that it’s one of my favorite local boutiques, and you can find them HERE!
Are you a senior (or a mom of one)? I’d love to share your story. I believe every one of my seniors deserves to have their story told, and their personality captured in their session. Contact me today to schedule yours, and let’s share the story together!
