Senior season is upon us and Hannah was one of my first 2023 graduates to photograph! Taking place at one of Mizzou’s botanical gardens and at a wildflower field at golden hour, her session is one that you do not want to miss!

Hannah’s Columbia, Missouri Senior Session

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.

This session was just as sweet as it looks! Tiffany and Timothy have such great chemistry and it’s evident that they were made for each other. We took their engagement photos at Forest Park in Saint Louis. I had never photographed at Forest Park, but it is now on my bucket list to go back and take many portraits there. Even though we met in Saint Louis, this isn’t exactly where Tiffany and Timothy met. Their story is just as sweet as their portraits let on.

Tiffany + Timothy | Forest Park Engagement Session | Columbia, MO Photographer

Ashley’s session was full of flowers, overcast skies, and pop-up rain showers! This sure didn’t stop us from creating some BEAUTIFUL senior portraits. Her original session date was in October, but conflicts kept making us reschedule, and we ultimately pushed it back to the spring. I’m so glad we did!! Ashley is such a light and I hope you can see it in the images below.
