"Autumn, The Year's Last Loveliest Smile"


Chilly November afternoon? No problem for this senior! Mackenzie's cozy autumn senior session turned out absolutely amazing! From the colors to the outfits to her wonderful personality and look, this session was easily one of my favorites of the season! 


Photographing people isn't always easy though; some people may be camera shy or feel a bit uneasy while others seem to be a natural in front of the camera! No matter what category you may fit in whether it is one of these or a combination, my goal is to make you as comfortable as possible. One thing I tell everyone I photograph is that the beginning shots I take are like practice. Those beginning photos aren't going to be THE shot of the session so don't worry or stress. Taking the pressure away seems to relax everyone. I have actually noticed there is a difference between where we first started and ended. It amazes me every time!  


I always tell everyone I photograph, it's okay to be nervous or uncomfortable. As we start working together to create images, both of us will get more comfortable as the session continues. We will create not just great images, but amazing ones. Luckily for me, this senior seemed very comfortable and natural right from the start! Mackenzie had a truly beautiful Autumn session and I am so thankful to have been a part of it. 

I would like to wish Mackenzie the best of luck with graduating this year and a successful future to come with whatever she chooses to do!
