Katlyn’s Senior Session 2016

This past weekend, I had the great pleasure of meeting Katlyn and her family. Katlyn is about to join the Class of 2016 Graduates this spring and needed her Senior Portraits taken. After a little coercion, we managed to talk Katlyn into a sunrise session. I can’t imagine what it is like to try and convince a 17 year old to wake up at 6 am on a weekend for a photo shoot so Props to Momma Lisa!

The truth is, I can’t stress enough to clients how that early light and the aesthetic of a cool morning can make the photos really pop! But, man oh man, did we luck out. We really couldn’t have planned a better sunrise. It was a beautiful morning at Bear Creek Park, 55 degrees of perfect photo shoot weather! Mom and Dad took a hike around Keller Pointe while we ventured onto the horse trails and into the flower-filled meadow. Kat and I hit it off right away, talking about her post-graduation plans and laughing our way through the knee-deep grass in the fields. We stopped for an outfit change/coffee break about halfway through, got recharged and headed out into the daylight.

She continued to surprise me throughout the shoot. After an hour, almost every client gets that face…you know the one. They’ve reached that smile limit when their face hurts a little from all the direction. Well, not this girl. She could just naturally shift from sweet smiles to serious poses. Looking through the gallery really showcases that side of her character. She is this uber graceful and kind girl with a wild side, that little bit of edge that everyone envies. It was such a pleasure to meet someone her age with her head on her shoulders and big dreams on the horizon. This girl has a beyond bright future ahead of her and I hope we get the chance to work together again!
