It’s that time of year again. Another set of high school seniors will be graduating. One of my own nieces will also graduate this year in Northern Virginia (I have 13 nieces and nephews along with a great nephew and two great nieces….so there are a few)! My own little man will “graduate” from preschool this May of 2016. (pass the Kleenex!) It’s a time of transition, a time of change, of exciting opportunities and endless possibility. It’s the perfect time to capture some images before all of the big changes that lie ahead. Senior photo sessions have been popular for several years now and I think it’s a great tradition. Personally, my senior school head shot with a splattered paint shirt is not exactly a flattering memory. Nothing could have been flattering with that sun-in streaked hair and late 80’s style..but natural light photos with a professional photographer might have helped. But I digress. 😉
This photo session is a throw back to the class of 2014. This is Kelsey and she is the daughter of a girl who went to high school with ME! I chose this session because it just feels like it pulls it full circle when you are photographing your high school classmate’s kids!
We started of at Nags Head FIshing Pier and captured a few images there and then headed down to Coquina Beach (across from the Bodie Island Lighthouse) to get some gorgeous beach shots. Kelsey was so great to work with and was up for anything. Some of my favorite photos are when she got in the surf for some fun ocean shots. Luckily she came with a change of clothes. 😉 Kelsey rocked her photo session like a model and I’m sure she is killin’ it a CU!
Had to capture one image of mom and daughter at the very end of the session Beauty runs deep in this family!This image below is the front side of a graduation announcement that I designed for Kelsey. I’m also a graphic designer, so it’s fun to incorporate my photography and design skills to come up with press printed products.Hope to see you back in the OBX soon…
Beautiful young woman (and Mom) and great photos! You have a great eye. What a wonderful gift.
