Ava | An August Senior Session in Columbia

When Kinley’s mom reached out to me about senior portraits in Columbia, I was super excited – not only because I was getting the chance to photograph another senior, but because DOGS were going to be involved! I absolutely love when seniors incorporate special items into their photos; I love it even more when these “items” are special furry friends! That’s what makes senior portraits so special – they are totally customizable to the senior’s interests and likes. I am so excited to share Kinley’s summer morning senior session in Columbia, MO with you!

Logan’s Stephens Lake Park Senior Session is finally on the blog! The weather the last few mornings has felt more like fall, so it got me in the mood to finish a few senior session blog posts from last year. Fall sessions are typically the most popular among seniors, and I can understand why – it’s cooler, the colors are gorgeous, and you’re almost half way done with your senior year. Read below to learn a little bit about Logan’s October senior session at Stephens Lake Park in Columbia, MO.

Cheers to my first 2023 columbia missouri senior session! When Julie and Summer reached out about photographing Summer’s senior portraits this spring, I could not wait to work with them. I absolutely love the creativity and uniqueness that comes with photographing seniors. Each senior gets to express their high school interests and their personality through various outfits and locations. It’s just so amazing to see the range of photographs we created by the end of a session.
