I’d like to introduce you to Taylor.

She is graduating from Whitmer High School in just a couple of months. I first met Taylor when she was in 5th or 6th grade. It’s hard to believe how fast those years have gone by. She is a very busy girl – a varsity cheerleader, a gymnast, and a member of the dance team just to name a few of her activities. Honestly, I am exhausted just thinking about all this girl does in a day. I have loved every minute of working with Taylor and her Mom. They both have such amazing energy – I wish I could bottle it!  😉

We took Taylor’s senior portraits in July and they are a beautiful mix of sunshine and drama. Perfect eye candy for this frigid winter day. Check them out…

I am super excited to share Beth’s gorgeous senior portrait session!!

Beth and I are 2nd cousins once removed – or something like that – we never did quite figure it out. Oh well, we don’t need labels. Despite the fact that she and her family (more favorite cousins of mine) live in Florida and I live in Ohio, AND we are some 17 years apart in age, we have become very close friends over the last few years. Kindred spirits are kindred spirits.

I cannot believe she’s graduating from high school!

I have been blessed to get her in front of my camera 3 times now and I cannot wait to do it again! She is, of course, gorgeous and extraordinarily photogenic, but she is also sweet and spunky and has a beautiful soul that shines through in every photo I’ve ever taken of her.

This summer Beth, myself, and some 30ish of our relatives converged on idyllic Pentwater, MI on the shores of Lake Michigan. Pentwater is a very special place for our family – we have all grown up spending wonderful summers and vacations in that little town. In fact, Bethany is named for the Cottage my Great Great Grandfather built in the dunes of Lake Michigan in 1906. So, we thought, what better setting for Beth’s senior pictures than Pentwater.

She and I snuck off 3 different times during our week in paradise to capture her Senior Pics.  We went into town and made the most of the Ally ways. We went to the Beach and played on someone’s boat.  Then we went to the Cottage and made pictures among the trees and on the board walk that so many of my childhood memories were created on.

Well, I guess I’ll let the photos tell their own story…
