Hi there!

I'm so glad you're here!

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!

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.

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.

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.
