Seniors, class of 2017

I can't believe it's 2017 already! 2016 was such a blur for me. It went by faster than most years, for some reason, even though I was sick and sluggish for what felt like most of the year. For most of the summer, I had mono, on top of pink eye twice, followed by hand foot and mouth! Yeah, I can't believe I even put that on here lol. I had a rough summer, catching all of the childhood sicknesses, followed by a rough end of the year, with that 2 week coughing-nose-head thing that everyone has been getting. I can't complain anymore about it though because it could have been worse and it wasn't.

A big resolution for the new year is to blog more, because I totally fall behind in the blogging department. I may have found the solution for making the time to blog: a laptop. I was able to score a 2011 macbook pro for WAAAAAY under what it's valued because I've become a master ebay bidder lol. Now, when I have downtime, instead of mindless phone scrolling (yes, I have a bad habit of doing that), I can just grab the laptop, resize some images and create posts to showcase them. I think that beats going upstairs to isolate myself in front of the computer, like I do when I'm editing lol.

Anyway, back in October, I shot 3 senior sessions. The first was Paige's session. She picked a location on the beach and we were kind of back and forth about rescheduling, due to rain, but I'm so glad we didn't! I love how the rain clouds add drama to the beautiful sunset in the images at the end... see for yourself :)

The next senior is Lily. I photographed she and her family over the summer and her mom asked that I also shoot her senior session. I was delighted to, of course... THEN, when I pulled up to the location, we lucked out with the huge hay bales and I was super delighted! :D

In case you're wondering who did Lily's amazing makeup, it was this amazing MUA, named Brelyn. She can also be found on instagram, by searching @makeupbybrelyn :)
