closing a chapter of the class of 2018 | congrats haley

This is it. This is my last Ode to Class of 2018 Seniors. And I'm ending with a session that I loved SO much. 

This is Haley. She graduated at the end of May. And she is so stinking adorable. Those two facts are completely unrelated but equally true. (So there.)

Class of 2019, it's your turn now! Let's talk about your senior portraits, what you want to include in them (a prop? a uniform?) and where you'd like to have them. 


Kettle Moraine HS | congrats to the class of 2018 + Kyle Loose

Here's another great grad-to-be... let's all give a polite golf clap to Kyle Loose from Kettle Moraine High School's class of 2018. 

We shot his senior portraits at one of my favorite locations.

We met at the nearby golf course and did a quick shoot just in time for: 
1. the golf course to be empty
2. sunset
3. before the Friday night football game started

I'm not a golfer, but I can still appreciate the silence of an empty green, the hush of the open fields and the vastness and beauty of the rolling hills and carefully manicured landscaping. It's no wonder Kyle wanted to use this spot for his photos.

I wish Kyle all the success his future can possibly hold.

Happiness is a long walk with a putter.

Wales Fall Family Portrait Session Sneak Peek

This is a first. 

We had the most beautiful late afternoon sunlight, fall leaves were drifting from the trees and the temperature was perfectly autumnal. The clothing was practically color-matched to fall itself. Hair and makeup was flawless.

I even think I heard birds singing.

But for some reason the focus wasn't there...

Can you even believe that?!? And people say cell phones aren't distracting! Sigh.

Oh, and poor mom - all she wanted was a nice family photo to hang above her mantel.

Alright, so eventually we managed to confiscate their cell phones. Success! Adorable Family, party of four!
