These are some of my favorite images from Sara’s summer senior portrait session! We went from an alley to a boardwalk to a dreamy field and finally ended at the beach just before sunset. The day couldn’t have been more perfect, and Sara was so easy to photograph! She’s naturally beautiful, bubbly, and fun…not to mention a crazy talented dancer! Thank you Sara for trusting me to create these memories for you!! xo

STAY WITH YOUR PARTNER + BE POLITE + HAVE FUN
Reilly was so easy to work with – if you have the pleasure of knowing her, I’m sure you know what I mean! She is effortlessly beautiful…she had a quiet calm about her with an up-for-anything attitude! My kind of girl!! As usual, I took about a million pictures so narrowing it down was the hardest part! Here are some of our favorites!
Luxe sessions include an on-location hair and makeup artist! Sometimes Paige just needs a little extra height – haha! It was a treat to be able to match Reilly’s hairstyle to the mood of the outfit that she was wearing. This look (mom’s idea!!) and the fishtail braid were my favorites!
Tonya had all of the outfits and accessories laid out for us – it looked like the set of a fashion shoot! I wish I would have taken a picture of the getting ready process…we were having too much fun!And when we needed the perfect ladders for the Ore Dock shot, Jim went to work and whipped up a couple of custom ladders just for us. I even got to photograph Reilly with one of her sisters, Shayla! I adore this family. <3
Enjoy your senior year Reilly! You’ve got such a bright future ahead of you – I can’t wait to see where you will go!
Courteney won the senior giveaway we did last month, and we had so much fun taking her senior pictures!! She truly radiates beauty – I could have photographed this sweet girl for days! These are a few of my favorites.
My friends Ashley and Rachel introduced me to Hanna a few months ago, knowing that I would be utterly obsessed with her adorable shop, The Whole Nine Yards, and all of the heavenly vintage she collects! We were recently being wallflowers together at an Upper Edge meeting and started planning a little collaboration!This amazing vintage wedding gown is for sale…and it’s perfect!!
The Whole Nine Yards is located at 1310 Ludington St. here in Escanaba! Hanna also makes exquisite custom clothing and can tailor just about anything for you.
