I'd like to introduce you to gorgeous Miss Darilyn!! She truly is beautiful inside and out, and her down to earth personality only makes her prettier. Darilyn showed up to her session with literally a van load of clothes, accessories and photo props lol. She was up for any idea I had and contributed a lot of her own ideas to her shoot. This was such a fun session - we laughed A LOT - and we walked away with SEVERAL beautiful shots! There is no way I can pick just one favorite from this session! Here are some highlights so you can see for yourself what I'm talking about... :)
We started Darilyn's session uptown at the library and then around some of the businesses/alleyways around the square. Darilyn looked stunning in this hot pink dress - it just pops in her pictures!!
Afterwards, Darilyn's grandpa, Steve, meet us with her adorable puppy, Ellie, so I could get a picture of them together. Oh my goodness, Ellie even smiled! This session seriously was a photographer's dream!
Next stop - a spot in the country Darilyn had found. The location was perfect - a beautiful lane, gorgeous light, an amazing old barn, a creek and fields full of tall grass and wildflowers.
After pictures in the lane, we took some around this old barn she found. Soooo cool and right up my alley!
Then we ventured down to the creek... I'm sure it was comical if someone was there to see us walking down the rocks into the creek - me taking baby steps and holding my camera tightly because I'm not coordinated at all and little Darilyn packing this chair doing the exact same thing lol.
Afterwards, Darilyn changed clothes and posed for a for a few shots with this cool old chair she found in what I call wildflowers. I'm sure they are actually weeds, but I think they are so pretty lol.
Darilyn wanted to pay tribute to her momma who passed away a few years ago. Her ring belonged to her momma and the necklace was a gift to Darilyn from her mother shortly before she died. Without a doubt, I know that Autumn is smiling down on this sweet girl and would be so proud of the wonderful young lady she has grown up to be.
Thank you so much Darilyn for allowing me to take your senior pictures!! It really is an honor. I wish you all the best as you finish up your final year of high school and get ready to start the next chapter in your life as an adult. I know, without a doubt, that you will do great things in your life, and I believe you will exceed even your own expectations.
