So this sweet girly is wearing an Elon shirt.  I know virtually nothing about Elon but I do know that if she’s going there it’s going to be amazing.  I’ve watched this fine young girl grow into a mature young woman that is ready to jump into the next challenge.  I loved our session together, hearing about what she hopes to do, what it’ll be like with a roommate and a dorm and all the rest of her new adventure.  Believe it or not at one point we had to completely stop the session to hold up for a bit of a downpour.  But then, in North Carolina if you just hang on for 5 minutes you’ll have a completely different weather pattern.  It worked out to be a great day with a beautiful girl.  She has a sweet heart and is really going to make an impact.  All the best!

Senior girl sessions are always a blast and this session was no different.  It's fun to hang out with a young lady like this one and hear about her dreams of life in the big city, what she hopes life will be and her plans for the future.  She's on a quest for an journey afar and it sounds like she has the opportunity for a great adventure.  We had a great variety of locations.... so many options out there for this pretty girl.  Enjoy these beautiful images below.

I always say that senior sessions are some of my favorite times for photography and this one did not disappoint.  I had a wonderful time getting to know this sweet girl better.  I love her zest for life and the direction she is headed.  I've seen this girl grow into a young woman and create an amazing babysitting program to help families that have kiddos with autism.  This is so close to my heart and something I really admire.  All the best, Erin, as you continue your journey!  I'll be excited to see where you end up!!

What do I say about this shoot.... this is a pretty special young man.  He's one of Tyler's best friends and we are so blessed that we met him and his wonderful family way back when the boys were in 5th grade.  I'm so happy they became fast friends.  They bonded over the trumpet and their mutual love of all things band.  What a gift to go through high school with a kid like Banks.  He has a great head on his shoulders and will go far.  All the best Banks on the next chapter of your adventure in life!!

Sweet Melissa

The song this grad chose is just so fitting... Sweet Melissa by the Allman Brothers Band.  This Melissa truly is such a sweet Melissa.  I thoroughly enjoyed the time I had to hang out with this very mature young lady.  I love talking with teens as we are out on our sessions and this session did not disappoint.  It's fun hearing about their plans for the future, prom details, college hopes and all the rest.  It is such a time of hope and anticipation.  I love it.  This young lady is ready to take on the world in her new adventure at college.  All the best sweet Melissa!
