Williamson County, TN photographer

Senior year is a year of “lasts”  Last first day, last football game, last competition, last dance…  It’s a year all mixed up with happy and sad.  Almost an adult, but not quite.  You’re supposed to make decisions about what you want to do with the rest of your life, but you still need a hall pass to use the restroom.  One thing is for sure though, it only happens once – and it will go by too quickly – so you have to make it count!

Good luck, Class of 2021!!

Dapper darlings and cheerful children:
– soft or neutral solids
– simple styles are timeless and classic
– dresses are always a win
– shoes are optional

Tip: Bring a change of clothes in case of a spill, thrill or chill.
Avoid: Ill-fitting or too tight clothes. Comfort is key!

Fabulous families:
– stick to color palette of three to four complementary colors
– layers are flattering and a way to show personality
– keep hair simple and clean
– non-glare glasses will keep glare at bay

Tip: Match your clothing colors to your home decor where your art will be displayed.
Avoid: Everyone wearing the same outfit. Mix it up!

Styling Seniors:
– layered looks are great
– variety: casual, funky, dressy, etc…
– accessories: hats, scarves, chunky bracelets
– clothes should be fitted, not baggy
– bare feet or fun shoes

Tip: For shiny, neat hair use product, like shine gel or pomade
Avoid: Huge logos that date the image or distract the eye

Senior pictures Spring Hill, TN

This high school senior is so fun!  We had a great time with her senior pictures.  Being naturally beautiful and photogenic, she made my job easy…  We met downtown and then moved out to a park.  Her great choice of outfits added to the overall success of this session!

Senior pictures Brentwood, TN

This one is a little special to us.  Heading into her senior year, we know she will go off and leave us next summer, but we don’t want to see her go!

We grabbed some quick shots around town and then headed to one of my favorite local parks.  Between swarms of bugs and noisy lawnmowers, its a wonder we made it out alive!  We couldn’t have asked for better weather and had a blast!  Thankful we get one more year with our sweet friend!
