Emily L. from Lewis-Palmer High School in Monument, Colorado is not only one of the sweetest seniors this season, but she is also incredible in front of the camera. She is a Class of 2016 graduate with a gorgeous smile and bubbly personality. Emily brought her best friend Haley A. and her new puppy Sophie along for her senior session. She chose the “Breathtaking” Collection as a part of this year’s Against the Grain Senior Portrait Collections, so we had 3 awesome hours together. Her session started at Fox Run Regional Park amid the tall pine trees in Black Forest just north of Colorado Springs. This spot is one of my new favorites this year because it gives us some amazing lighting during the evening and really shows off Colorado’s beauty in a different way. I was ecstatic that Emily wanted to start her shoot there with her puppy. Sophie rocked her part in Emily’s senior pictures! She might just be my favorite part of the whole session! 😉 I loved capturing the awesome friendship that Emily and Haley share. They’ve been best friends since elementary school and even now often have classes together at Lewis-Palmer. Both girls are hilarious and beautiful, so I was honored to capture their friendship as they head into their senior year together. The second half of Emily’s senior session led us near Garden of the Gods so we could capture some of Colorado’s more rustic and expansive beauty with Pikes Peak as our backdrop. We wrapped up right after the sunset which gave us some stunning lighting and soft skies. Emily and Haley both were former students of mine years ago at LPHS, and I loved getting to connect with both girls again. I can’t believe they are soon to be wrapping up their high school years and moving on to new journeys. I’m so blessed to have captured these moments of beautiful Emily, and I’m absolutely in love with her session.
Emily, I can’t wait to see where the next chapter of your life takes you! You’re amazing!
